Nationals Finish Sweep with 4-2 Win over Phillies

WASHINGTON (AP) — Doug Fister kept himself and his club on a roll, allowing two runs and four hits over seven innings Thursday as the Washington Nationals capped a sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies with a 4-2 victory.

Fister (4-1) struck out five and didn’t walk any as he won his fourth consecutive start for what’s starting to look like the tough-act-to-follow rotation expected from the Nationals this season.

The Nationals have won five of six. They’ve outscored opponents 38-12 in those half-dozen games, including 19-6 in each of the three-game series against the Texas Rangers and the Phillies.

Kyle Kendrick (1-6) allowed four runs over seven innings and walked a season-high five as the Phillies dropped their season-high sixth in a row.
