It has been a disappointing season for the Washington Nationals. Picked by many to win the NL East, they are 58-60 and 14 games behind the Atlanta Braves. And now, two of their players are making headlines for getting into an argument in the dugout during a game. TV cameras caught slugger Jayson Werth and left-hander Gio Gonzalez arguing in the home dugout during Tuesday's game against the San Francisco Giants. It appears that Gonzalez was a little late covering first base in the top of the inning, costing the Nationals a chance at turning a double play.

Jayson Werth could be out for several months after breaking his left wrist while attempting a sliding catch Sunday night, Washington Nationals Manager Davey Johnson said of his team's star right fielder after a 9-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. “It's a clean break,” Johnson said. “He's going to be out for a while.” Werth's wrist bent backward after his glove got caught underneath him as he was trying to catch a sinking liner by Placido Polanco in the sixth inning.

Jayson Werth said he could sense that something wasn't right with Roy Halladay. He had no idea what. What Werth sensed but didn't know was that Halladay was pitching with a mildly strained groin from the second inning on. For almost five innings, one of the best pitchers on the planet pushed off an injured limb, determined to extend the Philadelphia Phillies' season and regain home-field advantage in the National League Championship Series....

Cliff Lee couldn't help but eavesdrop. "Get me to the plate, boys," the Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher heard first baseman Ryan Howard say when the ninth inning started. When the top of the lineup ensured Howard of that, he delivered. The cleanup man hit a two-out, two-run double to tie Monday's National League division series Game 4 with Colorado and Jayson Werth followed with what turned into the series-deciding run-scoring single in the Phillies' 5-4 victory at Coors Field.

The world turned upside down at Citizens Bank Park on Saturday. Roy Halladay and Tim Lincecum were knocked around a bit. Nobodies like Cody Ross and Carlos Ruiz were hitting the ball out of the yard. In the city where Santa Claus was once booed, fans whistled at the long-haired Lincecum as if he were an attractive female when he stepped to the plate for a fifth-inning at-bat. And something else: the San Francisco Giants beat the heavily favored Philadelphia Phillies, 4-3, to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series.

When the end finally came ? fittingly on a Cole Hamels strikeout ? there were no wild celebrations on the field. No hugs, no dogpiles, just a few handshakes and high fives. The Phillies, after all, have been here before. So after pushing aside the Cincinnati Reds, 2-0, on Sunday to finish off a clinical three-game sweep of the National League division series, almost everyone in a Philadelphia uniform was thinking about the road ahead and not the one they had just traveled. "We haven't accomplished anything yet," first baseman Ryan Howard said.

For the third time in three seasons, the Philadelphia Phillies will be playing for a National League pennant. They made sure of that Sunday, riding a complete-game shutout from left-hander Cole Hamels to a 2-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds to complete an impressive three-game sweep of the NL division series. The Phillies, winners of the last two league championships, will go for a third straight beginning Saturday in Philadelphia, where they will face the winner of the San Francisco-Atlanta division series.

Five Philadelphia Phillies — second baseman Chase Utley , shortstop Jimmy Rollins , third baseman Placido Polanco , center fielder Shane Victorino and right fielder Jayson Werth — are currently in line to start the July 13 All-Star game at Angel Stadium. Utley, with 687,724 votes, is the league's leading vote-getter in the first announced balloting. The Phillies had three players represented in the NL starting lineup at last year's All-Star game. Philadelphia first baseman Ryan Howard and catcher Carlos Ruiz are currently in second place at their respective positions.

PHILADELPHIA -- Jayson Werth hit a three-run home run, Jimmy Rollins had three hits and three steals, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Florida Marlins, 8-6, Monday night. The Phillies closed to within 1 1/2 games of the National League East-leading New York Mets. Joe Blanton (2-0) pitched five shaky innings to earn his first win since Aug. 2. Brad Lidge finished for his 35th save in as many chances. Werth drove reliever Joe Nelson's first pitch off the brick batter's eye in straightaway center field to put the Phillies ahead, 8-4, in the seventh inning.

While some may lament the Dodgers' being without a true center fielder, at least for the time being, don't count Jayson Werth among them. Because while J.D. Drew and Milton Bradley are on the disabled list, Werth sees himself stepping up. "I expect to be in there every day," said Werth, who started in center Thursday. "I think it's a great opportunity for me. I've always said I want to be a big league center fielder.

Jeff Nelson was the umpire closest to Alex Rodriguez's fourth-inning line drive into the right-field corner. But he didn't have the best view of it. "In this particular play the ball hit something hard, solid," he said. "In my judgment it was the top of the fence." Another umpire, Joe West , thought the ball hit a fan. That left enough doubt among the six-man officiating crew for crew chief Gerry Davis to ask for a video replay, the first time an umpire has done that in postseason history.

City officials spent the day greasing the light poles, street lights and nearby trees knowing Vicente Padilla was pitching for the Dodgers and the drunken uglies here would go stupid once the Phillies clinched the pennant. The whole Dodgers season on the line, the team almost investing $100,000 in Padilla and it's all riding on his arm -- a shocker now they won't be in the World Series. A year ago the Phillies won the National League Championship Series in Los Angeles, somehow beating starter Chad Billingsley in Game 5 along with relievers Chan Ho Park , Greg Maddux , James McDonald , Joe Beimel and Hong-Chih Kuo . As you can see, the Dodgers are always loaded with pitching, or cheap bargains who claim they can throw.
