Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — J.T. Realmuto hit a go-ahead two-run single in the 10th inning with the aid of an obstruction call, and the Philadelphia Phillies won 8-7 to complete a doubleheader sweep of the Washington Nationals. The Phillies have won 14 of their last 16 games. Bryce Harper had three hits against his old team, helping the Phillies win 5-3 in the opener. Josh Bell homered twice in the nightcap and three times on the day for the Nationals. Matt Vierling’s first multihomer game helped the Phillies in the second game, when Washington’s losing streak stretched to seven.
