Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee had reached the point where he wasn’t thinking about the elbow injury that had sidelined him for two months this season. Ben Revere tied a career-high with four hits and the Phillies defeated the Washington Nationals 10-4 on Thursday night despite Lee leaving in the third inning with an elbow injury. After throwing ball one to Denard Span with two outs, Lee walked off the mound and tapped his left arm with his glove hand. ”It’s pretty much the same thing as it was before,” said Lee, who said he felt some discomfort throwing before the game and for the first few warm-up pitches each inning.

Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee left Thursday night’s game against the Washington Nationals in the third inning of his third start since returning from the disabled list with the same left flexor pronator strain that sidelined him for two months. Lee retired the first seven Nationals hitters he faced before giving up a double with one out in the third inning. With two outs, Lee threw a pitch to Nationals center fielder Denard Span, tapped his left arm with his glove while looking into the Philadelphia dugout and walked off the mound. Lee’s replacement, Antonio Bastardo, retired Span to end the inning .

Right fielder Giancarlo Stanton drove in two runs, and right-hander Henderson Alvarez outdueled Stephen Strasburg as the streaking Miami Marlins beat the Washington Nationals 3-0 on Tuesday night at Marlins Park. The Marlins (53-53) have won a season-best six games in a row and nine of their past 10. Stanton, who had been 0-for-his-past-11, including eight strikeouts, snapped his slump by pulling a high breaking pitch down the left-field line for a run-scoring double. It was Alvarez’s first career win against the Nationals — he had entered the game 0-3 in six previous starts.

Mike Minor had pitched so poorly lately that Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez asked him if he was hurt. The left-hander said that he was not hurt, and Sunday against the San Diego Padres, he pitched as if his shoulder issues from the spring were truly a thing of the past. Minor worked effectively into the seventh inning, and the Braves backed him with a six-run third inning en route to an 8-3 victory over the Padres before 31,456 at Turner Field.
