Cole Hamels and the Phillies hope to even their series with Washington this afternoon and finish off their 11-game road trip on a positive note.
Hamels (1-0, 2.65 ERA) earned his first career win last outing in an impressive showing against Arizona. Shawn Hill (0-1, 2.77) will make his third start of the season for the Nationals.
Pat Burrell was the hero in yesterday's game. His two-run homer in the eighth led to a five-run rally against Livan Hernandez, who had been tough on the Phils this year.
The Phillies will go with a lineup of starters for today's game.
