PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Livan Hernandez pitched 6 2-3 strong innings and drove in two runs with a pair of singles, helping the Washington Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2 Friday night.

Hernandez (7-11) outpitched All-Star Cole Hamels (13-7) to rebound from a rough outing at Colorado last Saturday. He gave up one unearned run and four hits.

The streaking Phillies were coming off a franchise-best 9-1 road trip. The four-time NL East champions have a healthy lead in the division and lead the majors with a 77-41 record.

Hamels lasted just five innings, his third-shortest outing this season. He allowed three runs, six hits and tied his season-high with four walks. Hamels gave up two runs or less in 14 of his previous 15 starts.
