A crucial — and controversial — call late in Tuesday night's game set the stage for the Nationals to lose their second straight to the Phillies.
After struggling against A.J. Burnett on Monday, the Nats struggled again against Cole Hamels in a 4-3 loss in Philadelphia.
Adam LaRoche was out of the Nationals' lineup Tuesday for the first time all month due to tightness in his lower back.
