run and drove in three, as the Washington Nationals recorded an 8-4 victory
over the Philadelphia Phillies in the middle test of a three-game

shot for the Nationals, who reduced their magic number to win the NL East to
four by shaking off a loss from Tuesday's opener.
John Lannan (4-0) worked 5 1/3 innings for the win, allowing only five hits
and two runs with three strikeouts.
Jimmy Rollins went deep, while Domonic Brown and B.J. Rosenberg drove in a run
each for the Phillies, who have dropped three of four.
