WASHINGTON - The Phillies shook hands on the infield at Nationals Park and could not help but peer into the home dugout. A raucous celebration had commenced. Nine minutes earlier, in the midst of defeat, the Nationals had been crowned National League East champions. "That's the first time I ever won and got beat," Charlie Manuel said. The manager sat in a quiet office still wearing his heavy Phillies jacket. His team won Monday, 2-0, and was formally dethroned by Washington. There was no loud music played in the visiting clubhouse.

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.

WASHINGTON - All of a sudden, the Phillies and Washington Nationals appear as though they have reversed roles. The Phillies are playing like a team gearing up for the postseason, while the Nationals, at least against the Phillies, haven't resembled the team that began Saturday with the National League's best record. A.J. Burnett allowed just one run in seven innings, as the Phillies beat the Nationals, 3-1, at Nationals Park. The Phillies have won 12 of their last 17 games. With Burnett's win, they clinched the season series against the Nationals for the first time since 2010.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Nationals are finding out the difficulties that come with earning front-runner status. A trendy preseason pick to win the World Series, the Nationals (25-23) are just two games ahead of the Phillies after Friday's 5-2 win at Nationals Park. And we all know the struggles the Phillies have endured. Friday's game was the first of 19 between the teams this season. Each team has faced similar problems - injuries, an ace pitcher struggling for wins, and an inconsistent offense.

The Phillies fan in a Roy Halladay jersey turns his back to rightfield, where former Phillie Jayson Werth plays for the Washington Nationals. The fan resembles those you might see walking around Citizens Bank Park or Northern Liberties or Xfinity Live! on a game night, the type who became emblematic of Phillies euphoria amid the team's late-aught success, before the winning begat sky-high expectations — and equally high levels of anxiety about being in last place after the first six weeks of this season.

Nationals Park had quite an opening night. Ryan Zimmerman hit a solo homer off Peter Moylan with two outs in the ninth inning last night, and Washington beat visiting Atlanta, 3-2, in the first regular-season game at the Nationals' $611 million stadium. With the dome of the U.S. Capitol lit up against the night sky beyond leftfield, and the Washington Monument visible from patches of the upper deck, Zimmerman raised his right fist as he rounded first base. Teammates spilled out of the dugout - it's along the first-base line now, not the third-base line, like at old RFK Stadium - and greeted the face of the franchise at home plate for celebratory pounds on the back.

WASHINGTON - One of baseball's newer rivalries resumes when the Washington Nationals begin a three-game series with the Phillies on Monday at Citizens Bank Park. Of course, when these teams last met earlier this month, much that makes a rivalry compelling was in place - including bad blood. This will be their first meeting since the Phillies' 9-3 nationally televised Sunday night win May 6 in Washington. That's when Cole Hamels plunked Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and later admitted that it was his way of welcoming the rookie phenom to the major leagues.

It was our much-anticipated quarterly lunch with Tim Kurkjian, baseball analyst extraordinaire, at which George Will and I bathe in a constant flow of obscure statistics, Kurkjian oddities, and ribald anecdotes — like the one about the Red Sox beat writer who accidentally walked in on a players' prayer meeting and was greeted by the burly rightfielder, newly born-again and not yet practiced in the language of Christian fellowship, bellowing "Hey!...

WASHINGTON - Doesn't matter how bad things look for the St. Louis Cardinals. Trailing by a bunch, down to their last strike, they simply stay calm and do what it takes to win. Erasing an early, six-run hole in Game 5, slowly but surely, the defending World Series champion Cardinals got a tying two-out, two-run single from Daniel Descalso and a go-ahead, two-run single from Pete Kozma in the ninth inning and came all the way back to beat the Washington...
