The Philadelphia Phillies broke a two-game losing streak on Monday, edging the Nationals on a ninth inning single from Dominic Brown. Washington looks to get back to .500 with a win against a tough lefty. Washington has won six of their last nine in this series.  The Nationals need another good outing from Ross Detwiler (2-4, 3.02 ERA), who is making his second start after coming off the disabled list due to a strained back muscle. He has now allowed just three runs or fewer in his last 10 games after giving up three in his last start against Colorado. Detwiler is 2-4 with a 4.24 ERA vs. Philadelphia. Cliff Lee has been solid all season but better on the road, where he is 6-1 with a 1.88 ERA. However, at home, pitching at a hitter's ballpark, he's 2-1 with a 3.82 ERA in five starts. The Phillies host the Nationals at Citizens Bank Park at 7:05pm on Tuesday night in Game 2.
