Kendrick (7-9), one of seven pitchers used by Philadelphia, allowed four hits and struck out three to help the Phillies win for the fifth time in the last seven games.

Tyler Moore homered for Washington, which lost its second straight.

Moore snapped Kendrick’s 21 2/3 innings scoreless streak with a two-out, two-run homer in the seventh. Kendrick retired the first two batters in the frame before walking Kurt Suzuki. Moore, pinch-hitting for Edwin Jackson (11-8), launched an 0-1 sinker into the seats in left to pull Washington within 3-2.
