WASHINGTON - Washington Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth broke his left wrist Sunday night trying to make a sliding catch against the Phillies. "It's a clean break," Washington manager Davey Johnson said after the Nationals' 9-3 loss. "He's going to be out for a while. " Johnson said Werth will see a specialist to evaluate the injury. Werth was injured in the sixth inning. The right fielder's glove got caught underneath him, and he bent his wrist backward trying to grab Placido Polanco's sinking liner.

WHAT'S THE confusion about Jayson Werth leaving the Phillies? Put Mayberry in left, Brown in right, make Ibanez the pinch hitter and platoon Howard against right-handers only. Don't give me that stuff about Mayberry and Brown being rookies - everybody was a rookie once, and until they play every day in the majors, they'll never develop. It's a no-brainer. Joe H. Imlay Bordentown, N.J.

ORLANDO - Ruben Amaro Jr. left the general managers' meetings Thursday without making any significant news. The off-season process is young, so there's no reason to sound any sirens or file a grievance with the complaints department. "We had some productive discussions with some agents on free agents and with other clubs" about trades, the Phillies' general manager said. Though Amaro never spoke specifically about negotiations with Jayson Werth's agent Scott Boras, he did send another signal that the Phillies are ready to move on without their free-agent rightfielder, even talking about him in the past tense at times.

Bernadette Dougherty may be a monster Phillies fan, but she's a mom first. Glued to the television watching last night's Phillies-Rockies clash, Dougherty, 43, of Feasterville had to skip out at the beginning of the sixth inning to pick up her children. It was in that inning Jayson Werth belted the first Daily News Home Run Playoff Payoff homer of the year making Dougherty $1,000 richer. "I was watching the game and had to pick my kids up from CCD and of course the second I leave I miss hearing my name called.

The Phillies have hit, pitched, and played their usual pristine defense to build their longest winning streak since 1991. And in those rare moments when executing all the facets of the game wasn't quite enough, a stroke of fortune here and there made its way into the equation. Case in point: With one out and a runner on first in the top of the ninth inning last night at Citizens Bank Park, Chicago's Aramis Ramirez hit a sizzling grounder destined for a base hit. It brushed off the leg of Brad Lidge just enough to slow it a bit, and Jimmy Rollins turned it into an inning-ending double play.

WASHINGTON - Cameron Rupp offered a few words to Jeanmar Gomez and then slapped the pitcher on the back. There was not much for the catcher to say. The task was simple. One more out and the Phillies were flying out of Washington with a win. The task proved to be too much. Jayson Werth ripped a two-run single up the middle. Gomez reached with his glove but never had a chance, and the Phillies left Nationals Park with a 5-4 loss Sunday afternoon. Their sixth straight loss to Washington proved to be the most brutal of them all. The Phillies - who looked dormant for much of the weekend - rallied from three runs down and went ahead in the ninth.

These are the nights a rebuilding project produces, a nondescript 5-1 Phillies loss to a first-place Washington team that resembled many failures before it. That is expected; the Phillies do not have a fraction of the pieces to contend while the Nationals bear lofty goals. Instead, these are the nights when a manager and a fan base learn about how a potential future anchor is handed the ball and asked to stop the bleeding. Aaron Nola was not at his best Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park.

In the season's first two weeks, the Phillies received more production from the No. 9 spot in the lineup than what their leadoff hitters mustered. The manager batted Freddy Galvis first on Sunday "for lack of a better option" and, naturally, Galvis stood at the plate in the most decisive moment of a 3-2 comeback win over Washington. He was the perfect hitter to oppose Jonathan Papelbon. The diminutive but aggressive shortstop swung at a fastball, high and outside. The ball sailed over Jayson Werth's head in left.

WASHINGTON - Three extra innings were needed to decide the penultimate meeting of the season between the Phillies and Washington Nationals. But 48 minutes before the conclusion of Washington's 2-1 win in 12 innings on Saturday, the preseason National League East favorites were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. It was about 7:15 p.m. when the out-of-town scoreboard at Nationals Park reflected that the New York Mets had won, 10-2, in Cincinnati, to clinch the division. With the Phillies' fate decided long ago, the game had officially been rendered meaningless.

THE 11TH PITCH Justin De Fratus threw last night was a 92-mph fastball that was delivered just above belt-high and on the outer half of the strike zone. It was not where Cameron Rupp's glove was set up, low and and on the other side of the plate. Instead, it was the kind of pitch you might have your buddy throw you while in the middle of a Wiffle Ball Home Run Derby during a midsummer barbecue. And De Fratus, who has been hard at work tinkering with mechanics in what's been a lost season, knew it pretty much a second after it left his right hand.

Jayson Werth kept the bat in his grip on Wednesday night as he left the batter's box and gazed toward left field. The former Phillies outfielder tracked the path of another pitch he mercilessly whacked into the night. Werth rounded the bases in the sixth inning without a hurry. He had hit yet another home run, stinging his old team twice in Washington's 12-2 win over the Phillies. Werth's home runs in consecutive at-bats gave him two homers in the same game for the second time in the three-game series at Citizens Bank Park.

A FOUR-RUN Phillies lead had just been cut in half as Andres Blanco dug a foot into the left side of the batter's box to begin the home half of the fifth inning last night. A single voice rose above the din of the crowd, militant at first but increasingly sad as his plea repeated. "We want Utley," he bellowed. "We . . . want . . . Utley. " Six pitches later, Blanco planted a 3-2 pitch from Toronto reliever Bo Schultz into the rightfield seats, extending the Phillies' lead to 5-2. The crowd roared.

A FEW FRIENDS were speaking excitedly about the Phillies over the weekend and my non-sports-fan wife asked this: "So, can they still make the playoffs?" Not exactly, she was told. But they're not in last place anymore! She was not impressed. "When do the Eagles start?" she asked. And therein lies our collective civic dilemma. What, exactly, are the Phillies playing for? What, exactly, are we watching? The birth of a new, young, exciting team? Or the kind of fool's gold that those good Phillies teams of the last decade often ran into at this time of the year?

SOME NATIONALS fans might not have liked the Jayson Werth giveaway item they got at the ballpark last night. But if they give it some time, it'll grow on them. Growing, after all, is what Chia Pets do best. Last night's promotion, given to the first 20,000 to attend the game against the Diamondbacks at Nationals Park, was a Chia Pet likeness of Werth that grows a full, grassy beard. It ought to look great next to previous Werth giveaway items, including last year's garden gnome.

WASHINGTON - The bad thing about the first couple of weeks of the baseball season is that a few rocky innings here and there can create a stat line that makes a pitcher look like he shouldn't be in the major leagues. The good thing is that because the sample size is so small, a few good outings can quickly make the stats appear more reasonable. Of course, when you do a sudden U-turn and head back in the wrong direction, you quickly get back to where you started. When David Buchanan started yesterday's game, the Phillies righthander was 0-2 in his first two starts with an earned run average of 11.42.
