WASHINGTON - Cameron Rupp roared into second base on Thursday evening and pounded his fists. The Phillies finally found a run, breaking a scoreless tie in the ninth inning against one of baseball's top teams. Rupp skied a fly ball that soared past the reach of Bryce Harper and fell into deep right field, scoring the winning run of a 3-0 victory over the Washington Nationals. The Phillies - the team picked to finish as one of baseball's worst teams - had shocked the first-place Nationals again, completing a three-game sweep at Nationals Park.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Nationals season began to unravel around the time they acquired closer Jonathan Papelbon from the Phillies and pushed Drew Storen to the setup role. On Sunday at Nationals Park, the Phillies happened to witness the ugliest moment of this disastrous Nationals season. Not surprisingly, it featured the Phils' former closer. In the eighth inning of the Phillies' 12-5 win, Papelbon and star Bryce Harper fought in the Nationals dugout. Papelbon had words for Harper when the National League MVP front-runner returned to the dugout after flying out, and when Harper chirped back, Papelbon shoved him against the wall by his neck before teammates separated them.

As far as ballparks to make his new home, Jayson Werth selected a pretty good one in Nationals Park. Werth is a career .307 hitter there, with six homers and 13 RBI in 25 games. This past season, he hit .419, with two homers and six RBI in eight games. Among those teams that have to face Werth often is the Phillies, now that he remains in the National League East. "We'll get him out a lot. That's what I think," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "I believe that we will.

Phillies fans took over Nationals Park for the season opener, with seemingly more Phillies fans than Washington fans in the sold-out stadium. The rooting interest of the crowd was not lost on the players on either team. That could be the case again with the Phillies beginning a three-game series in Washington tonight with a chance to wrap up their fourth consecutive NL East title. As of yesterday, plenty of good seats were still available, Nationals spokesman John Dever said.

WASHINGTON - Teddy wins! Teddy wins! For the first time, the Teddy Roosevelt mascot won the Presidents Race in the middle of the fourth inning at Nationals Park - a pursuit that drew attention even from a White House spokesman and Sen. John McCain. Teddy - Mr. Rough Rider, himself - had lost more than 500 times since 2006, when the Washington Nationals baseball team began having races among 10-foot-tall foam renderings of Roosevelt, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abe Lincoln at home games.

The Anderson Monarchs ended their 19-day baseball barnstorming tour late Wednesday night when they finally returned to Philadelphia. On Tuesday night, however, the party was still in full swing as the 16 10- and 11-year-old ballplayers from South Philadelphia took in the Washington Nationals-New York Mets game at Nationals Park. The kids got to see a pinch-hit home run by the Mets' Jordany Valdespin and the Nationals win the game in the bottom of the 10th on a wild pitch with the bases loaded.

WASHINGTON - Aaron Altherr slowed as he neared first base, almost stopping as he watched his hit fall to shallow center field on Friday night in the third inning of an 8-2 win over the Washington Nationals. He then saw the ball blitz past a diving outfielder and skip toward the wall at Nationals Park. It was time to run again. Altherr sprinted around the bases and slid safely into home without a throw. It was the 14th inside-the-park grand slam in Phillies history and first since Ted Kazanski in 1956.

By Phil Francis National parks are experiencing record visitation levels and also increased demands for nontraditional recreational activities. While long-established laws and policies require that public uses of national parks continue, careful evaluation is required to determine the circumstances when access should be restricted. National Park Service management policies state that "National Parks belong to all Americans, and the National Park Service will welcome all Americans to experience their parks.

By Jordan Lofthouse and Randy Simmons Despite the centennial celebrations of the National Park Service, all is not well in our national parks. Just this year in Yellowstone, popular media covered stories of a bison calf that was euthanized after tourists put it in their car and a tourist who died when he fell in an acidic hot spring. The number of visitors and the list of accidents in our national parks grow each year. As a result, some people are calling for more restrictions on how many people can enter national parks and what parts of them we can access.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of what novelist and environmentalist Wallace Stegner called "the best idea we ever had," the founding of the National Park Service. The greatest hits - Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon - attract carloads by the millions, but many parks can be visited in absolute solitude. Often, a smaller park or historic sight boasts a powerful but little-known story about America's heritage. Here are a few of our favorites: Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site , Buffalo.

As preparations for this year's Philadelphia Flower Show ramped up this month, its theme - the National Parks - was cause for some head-scratching. With floral designers tasked with evoking national parks such as the Muir Woods National Monument (known more for towering redwoods and less for flowering plants) and Arches National Park (a literal desert), attendees couldn't be faulted for wondering where on earth they were going to put all the flowers. But the Flower Show's 188th incarnation, hosted by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and opened to the public on Saturday morning, was, for many visitors, a welcome exercise in creativity.

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.
