And don’t look now, but the surging Nationals have pulled within three games of the slumping Phillies for second place in the NL East. The Nats ended up taking three in a row from their I-95 rivals, with ex-Nat Bryce Harper going 1-9 for the Phils.
Suddenly three games with Atlanta beginning this evening becomes interesting.
