Sept. 29, 2007 at 7:30 PM   |   Comments

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Matt Chico gave up an earned run and just four hits in six innings Saturday afternoon, as the Washington Nationals beat Philadelphia, 4-2.

Three players had one RBI each, and three had two hits for the Nationals, who have won five of their last six games.

Chico improved to 7-9, and closer Chad Cordero earned his 37th save this season.

Philadelphia's Aaron Rowand and Ryan Howard hit solo home runs, with Howard’s 46th homer of the season drawing Philadelphia within 4-2 in the bottom of the eighth.

Six players had one hit each for the Phillies, who have won seven of their last 10 games -- but, with the loss Saturday, fell into a tie for first place in the NL East with the Mets. New York beat Florida, 13-0, Saturday afternoon.

The losing pitcher was starter Adam Eaton (10-10).
