PHILADELPHIA -- Here come the Philadelphia Phillies a tad too late. Nike Roshe Azul Mujer . Pinch-hitter Grady Sizemore hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning, helping the Phillies beat the NL East-leading Washington Nationals 8-4 Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep. Marlon Byrd hit a two-run homer and Jimmy Rollins hit a solo shot to back Kyle Kendrick (7-11). The right-hander allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings. The last-place Phillies went 7-2 on their best homestand this season. "Were scoring runs, starting pitching has been good and the bullpen is putting up zeroes," Kendrick said. "Everyone is doing their jobs." Denard Span was 3 for 4 and fell a triple short of the cycle for the Nationals. Doug Fister (12-5) allowed a season-high 10 hits and five runs -- four earned -- in 5 2-3 innings. The Nationals had won 12 of 13 before losing three in a row in Philadelphia. They still have the best record (75-57) in the NL and a comfortable 6 1/2-game lead over Atlanta in the division. "We always have the same approach, win or lose," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "We look forward to the next one. We know if we do things correctly, we have a good chance to beat the other team." Byrd started Philadelphias rally in the sixth with a leadoff single. Domonic Brown lined an RBI double to right-centre to cut the deficit to 4-3. Two outs later, Sizemore drove an 0-2 pitch into the right-field seats for a 5-4 lead and his first career pinch homer. "I fell behind, just trying to put a good swing on it," Sizemore said. "With two strikes, just looking to battle and protect." Fister left after hitting the next batter, Ben Revere, with an 89 mph fastball on his right arm. Revere went down in pain, but stayed in the game. Byrd connected off Ross Detwiler in the seventh for his team-high 24th homer. The Nationals took a 3-2 lead in the third when Jayson Werth singled in Span, who led off the inning with a double. Span ripped a 427-foot homer off the railing in the second deck to make it 4-2 in the fifth. It was Spans second homer this season in his 512th at-bat. Rollins hit a towering drive into the right field seats for his 17th homer to cut it to 2-1 in the first. Chase Utley followed with a single to centre. He scored when Span misplayed Ryan Howards single. The ball rolled past Span for an error and Howard ended up on second. Howard added an RBI single in the eighth, finishing 3 for 5. TRAINERS ROOM Nationals: 1B Adam LaRoche was back in the starting lineup after being held out due to back tightness on Tuesday. He went 0 for 4. Phillies: OF John Mayberry Jr. (right wrist) is expected to be activated when rosters are expanded Monday. RHP Mike Adams (shoulder) is rehabbing at Triple-A Lehigh Valley and hopes to pitch in September. UP NEXT Nationals: RHP Jordan Zimmermann (9-5, 2.93) starts the opener of an interleague series at Seattle. Felix Hernandez, the 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner, goes for the Mariners. Phillies: RHP David Buchanan (6-7, 4.21) starts the opener of a three-game series at the New York Mets on Friday night. Hes 0-2 with a 4.26 ERA against the Mets. GRAB THE BROOMS The Phillies only have six sweeps this season, but two have come against division leaders Washington and Milwaukee. They also swept Atlanta on the road in July. Their last sweep over the Nationals was Aug. 24-26, 2012 in Philadelphia. NATS STATS The Nationals fell to 63-8 when scoring four runs or more. ... Span was 0 for 8 in the series before busting out of his slump. He leads the NL with 50 multi-hit games. ... Fister has lost consecutive starts for the first time this year. CELEBRATING MONE The Phillies honoured Mone Davis and her Taney Dragons teammates on a day the city gave them a parade downtown. Davis, who was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated after becoming the first female pitcher to win a game in the Little League World Series 68-year history, and her 11 teammates each threw out a first pitch to 12 Phillies players. The Dragons represented the mid-Atlantic region in the World Series. They won their first two games before being eliminated, losing to Las Vegas and to eventual U.S. champion Chicago. Adidas Zx Flux Baratas Mujer . The kind he has every so often. The kind he has when Dwyane Wade sits. James scored 43 points -- 25 in a bewildering first-quarter shooting display -- and Chris Bosh added 21, leading the Miami Heat to a 100-96 win Tuesday night over the Cleveland Cavaliers, who played their first game without injured All-Star guard Kyrie Irving. Nike Roshe One Gris Hombre . Advancing to the Champions League quarterfinals should be a formality after Lionel Messi scored a penalty and Dani Alves added a late second to secure a commanding 2-0 advantage over City in the round of 16 on Tuesday. http://www.rosheone-flores.es/nike-roshe-one-rojas.html .Jeff Green, playing in his second preseason game after missing the first four because of a calf strain, had 18 points. The Celtics (3-3) shot 47.2 per cent from the floor and made 15 of 37 3-point attempts.Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Kerry, Im sure its been asked a million times but during the Habs game Manny Malhotra was ejected out of the face off in the dying seconds of the first that resulted in the Stars winning the faceoff and scoring. Then as I continue to watch the game, or any NHL game in my life for that matter, the linesmen are ejecting guys out of the dot or waiting longer to drop it. My question: what are these guys looking for to drop the black rubber thing on the ice? John Cobb John: In one word, the linesmen are looking for fairness! They want to conduct a fair drop to ensure that one player doesnt gain a distinct advantage over the other by cheating. With the multitude of face-off markings that are on ice, in addition to the procedure spelled out in Rule 76 (face-offs) it really shouldnt be all that difficult for the centers to stand squarely with their stick on the ice in the shaded area of the dot. It all sounds good in theory but as Dale Hunter once told me, Frase, if you aint cheatin you aint tryin! Manny Malhotra is without a doubt the premier face-off expert in the NHL. I can tell you that Manny is also a real solid citizen and a class act. Those fine qualities, however, do not prevent the Habs player from subscribing to Hunters theory whenever he can get away with it. With 2.5 seconds remaining in the first period and a face-off to the right of Carey Price, Malhotra keyed on Mike Cviks hand once the big linesman presented the black disc in preparation of dropping it. As Honda applied finger pressure to the puck just prior to releasing it, Manny jumped prematurely with a stick swing that eliminated opposing center Jason Spezzas stick before drawing the puck cleanly on his backhand. Malhotra beat Cvik to the draw by exerting contact to his opponent and the linesman had no alternative but to eject the Montreal specialist from the face-off. (Here is a test for you. Hold your thumb and pointer-finger together and apply pressure. The fine muscles in your hand will twitch and your thumb nail will even change color at the tip. That creates the trigger switch for an expert like Manny Malhotra to move on. Each linesman can grip the puck a little differently and demonstrate a tell as to the moment he will drop the puck. Experts like Manny Malhotra study these iindividual tendencies) Players must adhere to the following guidelines and enforced by the linesmen as per Rule 76. Nike Roshe One Rojas Mujer. 4, which states that when the face-off takes place in any of the end face-off circles, the players taking part shall take their position so that they will stand squarely facing their opponents end of the rink, and clear of the ice markings. The sticks of both players facing-off shall have the blade on the ice, within the designated white area. The visiting player shall place his stick within the designated white area first followed immediately by the home player. It really shouldnt be all that difficult for players to follow those clear instructions. Violations that result in an ejection are: i) One or both centers are not positioned for the face-off, ii) One or both centers refrain from placing their stick on the ice, iii) Any player has encroached into the face-off circle, iv) Any player makes physical contact with an opponent, or v) Any player who lines up for the face-off in an off-side position. A referees best friend is a moving puck. Trust me when I tell you I wanted face-offs to be conducted by the linesmen as quickly and efficiently as humanly possible. I respect their need for maintaining the integrity of an end-zone face-off because, as we saw in this situation, a goal resulted just prior to the horn sounding. Fans get frustrated and frequently blame the linesmen when players are ejected from the face-off circle or it seems to take forever to drop the puck. The last thing any linesman wants is to become the goat when a flawed face-off results in a goal. As much as I respect their position, I have to admit that I stood on the goal line many times and uttered under my breath, just drop the puck! One night in the Joe Lewis Arena, my friend and colleague linesman Dan McCourt was taking forever to drop the puck for an end zone face-off. I finally skated into the face-off circle from my opposite side goal-line position and said to Chief, The artist sitting in the first row just informed me that he has finished your still portrait and its okay for you to drop the puck now. Just open your hand and let gravity take over! You can imagine what linesman Chief Dan McCourt told me to do. I still chuckle how the two centers just about fell over laughing as I skated back to my position. The puck eventually fell and another perfect face-off was conducted.
