      Nationals beat Phillies 5-1

      PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Gio Gonzalez tossed seven sharp innings, the Nationals hit a pair of consecutive homers off Cliff Lee, and Washington beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-1 Wednesday night.

      Anthony Rendon and Wilson Ramos hit back-to-back shots off Lee to start the fifth and Ryan Zimmerman and Jayson Werth did it to open the sixth.

      Gonzalez (7-3) gave up one run and six hits, striking out five to win his fourth straight start. The lefty has eight quality starts in a row.

      Lee (10-3) had allowed nine homers in his first 135 2-3 innings this year before yielding four in a span of eight batters.

      Darin Ruf hit a solo shot for the Phillies, who failed to reach .500 for the first time since June 7.
