PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 26 (UPI) -- Cliff Lee hurled seven innings of one-run ball and clubbed a run-scoring double Sunday, boosting the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-1 win over Washington.

Lee (3-7) broke a personal four-start winless streak with the strong performance, during which he yielded one run on seven hits. The left-hander didn't issue a walk and struck out five.

Lee also helped himself at the plate. With one on and one out in the fifth, the pitcher laced a 1-1 pitch over the head of Nationals center fielder Bryce Harper, scoring Kevin Frandsen.

Jimmy Rollins followed by smashing a two-run homer to ice the contest.

Laynce Nix added a solo shot and Josh Lindblom collected his first career save as the Phillies completed a three-game series sweep.

Nats starter Jordan Zimmerman (9-8) was touched for three runs on five hits in a five-inning effort.

Tyler Moore supplied the only RBI for National League East-leading Washington.
