Kendrick cruises to his 8th win

On a night where fireworks occurred after the game, the Phillies edged the Nationals for a 3-1 victory. But, it wasn't without minor bumps along the way. This included Chase Utley's 1st career game with 3 errors. But, it always seemed that the Phillies would find away out of the situation. This included Dom Brown gunning down Bryce Harper at home. Still, the Nationals scored a run on a sac fly by Ryan Zimmerman. The Phils took the lead in the 7th with a clutch RBI double by Kevin Frandsen. The next inning Mike Young padded the lead in the 8th with an infield single. The door was shit in the 9th by Papelbon to earn his 20th save on the year. This gives the Phils a series win over the Nationals, winning 3 out of 4 games.

 They start an interleague series with the Chicago White Sox tomorrow. Tomorrow's game has Jonathan Pettibone vs.Jonathan Danks. With Ruben Amaro Jr considering  the team buyers, they need to win this series in order to cement themselves as buyers in the market and hopefully make a push for the Playoffs.   
In other news the Phillies Phamily lucky gnome has a 2-0 record this season.
