It’s a marquee pitching matchup at Nationals Park with Stephen Strasburg (7-9, 3.55) going up against Cole Hamels (6-5, 2.55).
Denard Span and Anthony Rendon set the table for the Nationals on Saturday, opening the floodgates for an 11-0 rout of the Phillies.
The Nationals annihilated the Phillies pitching staff, starting with A.J. Burnett, capped by Anthony Rendon's 3-run homer in the bottom of the second.
Still tinkering with his swing, Bryce Harper has been trying to bunt lately, but manager Matt Williams would prefer his slugger swing away more often.
