WASHINGTON (AP) — Marlon Byrd hit a tiebreaking home run in the sixth inning, Roberto Hernandez pitched eight strong innings and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 2-1 Friday night.

Grady Sizemore and Cody Asche had two hits apiece for Philadelphia.

Hernandez (6-8) allowed an unearned run on five singles. He retired the last 10 batters he faced and 17 of the last 18. Over his last four starts, Hernandez is 3-0 with a 1.88 earned run average, including two wins against Washington while allowing no earned runs over 15 1-3 innings.

Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his 26th save. He allowed a pair of one-out singles before striking out Bryce Harper and Nationals newcomer Asdrubal Cabrera.

NL-East leading Washington has lost four of five.

Doug Fister (10-3) took his first loss since June 15, allowing two runs and six hits in seven innings.
