PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Darrick Hall hit two homers, Nick Maiton and Rhys Hoskins each hit two runs, and the Philadelphia Phillies swept the Washington Nationals, 13-1, in four games.
Mutton drove in four runs, Bryson Stott scored three RBIs, and the Phillies scored five runs in the fourth and eighth innings.
Aaron Nola (8-8) allowed five strikeouts and one run in six innings, making it the first time the Phillies (60-48) were above .500 in 12 games since August 2018.
The Phillies missed the playoffs that season due to a postseason drought that has persisted since 2011. The National League may finally end.
Hall played his part in a long-ball barrage against the Nationals with two solo homers against Washington starter Cory Abbott (0-1). Hoskins is all-home in four games.
The Phillies hit 14 home runs in four games, one of the most in franchise history. The previous record was set with 13 against the Cubs at Wrigley Field last season.
