    threw seven impressive innings, Jayson Werth hit a solo homer and the Washington
    Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 on Monday night.Roark (14-7)
    allowed four singles and struck out five. Marc Rzepczynski tossed a perfect
    eighth and Mark Melancon finished off the four-hitter.It would be fine if people
    dont notice because maybe he can surprise some people, Nationals manager Dusty
    Baker said. I dont think he really cares. He just wants the victories.The wins
    are piling up for Roark, who went from winning 15 games in 2014 to pitching in
    relief last year. Hes more focused on helping the NL East-leading Nationals win
    the division.August is a grinder month, Roark said. Everybody has to stay locked
    in. We all have bumps and bruises but we have to keep going.Phillies rookie Jake
    Thompson (1-4) allowed two runs and seven hits in seven innings. It was the
    longest and best of his five career starts.Werth lined a solo shot to left in
    the first against his former team. It was his third homer in four games. A
    member of Philadelphias 2008 World Series championship team, Werth was greeted
    by boos, as usual.Home runs come in streaks. When you start hitting a couple,
    you think about it, Baker said. I knew he was locked in watching him in BP. He
    was hitting them out and keeping them low.Bryce Harper raced home from first on
    Anthony Rendons single to left-center to make it 2-0 in the first. Clint
    Robinson and Trea Turner had RBI singles off Frank Herrmann in the
    ninth.Thompson settled in nicely after a rough start. His last pitch was a nasty
    curve that froze Turner for strike three.It was night and day from my
    performance in the first four (starts), Thompson said. Its kind of a relief. It
    feels a lot better.Roark didnt need much support. The righty stifled the
    Phillies again. Hes 3-0 with a 0.64 ERA against them this season.The Nationals
    snapped a two-game losing streak. They have a nine-game lead over the Marlins
    and Mets.DIVISION DOMINANCEWashington is 36-16 against the rest of the NL East.
    Its the best division record in the majors.ROSTER MOVESOF Michael A. Taylor was
    recalled from Triple-A Syracuse by the Nationals. RHP Lucas Giolito was optioned
    down.ODUBEL ON THE MOVEPhillies All-Star CF Odubel Herrera will likely play a
    corner outfield spot in winter ball. Manager Pete Mackanin has been impressed
    with Aaron Altherr in center and prospect Roman Quinn also plays there.TRAINERS
    ROOMNationals: RHP Stephen Strasburg threw a bullpen session one week after he
    was placed on the DL with elbow soreness. Strasburg is expected to return to the
    rotation when hes eligible.UP NEXTRHP Max Scherzer (14-7) starts for the
    Nationals against RHP Jerad Eickhoff (9-12) on Tuesday night. Scherzer is 6-1
    against the Phillies in nine career starts. Eickhoff had 10 strikeouts in his
    only career start vs. Washington on Sept. 25, 2015.

    . Louis Blues teammates who would also be participating in
    the Olympics, Alex Pietrangelo felt right at home, no different in some ways to
    the travel experience of any old road trip – save for the length of the journey,
    that is.
    Biletnikoff Youth Jersey
    . The next step is a better finish. Bae played
    bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving
    him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the
    . Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2
    minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout
    Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals.
    Hendricks Jersey
    . The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with
    an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the
    former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates
    for the U.

    . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas
    Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica
    green sweaters of their sons team. PHILADELPHIA -- Ryan Mathews helped the
    Philadelphia Eagles play keep away from Matt Ryan and Atlantas high-powered
    offense.After disappearing from the game plan the past two weeks, Mathews ran
    like a guy who was tired of watching from the sideline. He had a season-best 108
    yards rushing and two touchdowns while the Eagles piled up 208 yards on the
    ground.The suddenly successful rushing attack allowed the Eagles to control time
    of possession by a nearly 2-to-1 margin, forcing the leagues top-scoring offense
    to be spectators for much of the day.The result was a 24-15 win over the Falcons
    on Sunday.We did what we needed to do to win, Mathews said. I know the linemen
    love run blocking. They played great. They did all they could to open up holes
    for us. We knew it was going to be a hard game. I said throughout the week if
    any of us got the ball, we were giving 100 percent.Mathews had just nine carries
    in the past two games while 33-year-old Darren Sproles took over as the featured
    back. But coach Doug Pederson made a point to establish the run behind Mathews
    right from the start.Mathews carried seven times for 34 yards on the first
    drive, taking it in from the 4 for a 7-0 lead. He had a 5-yard TD run in the
    fourth quarter and also scored the 2-point conversion.I had confidence in Ryan
    to get the job done, Pederson said. His size and strength paid off.Rookie
    Wendell Smallwood chipped in with 70 yards rushing on 13 carries. Sproles ran
    twice for 19 yardds and caught eight passes for 57 yards.ddddddddddddWe stepped
    up when we needed to, Smallwood said. We needed to establish the run game and we
    did.The running backs made it easier on Carson Wentz and the offense was more
    balanced -- 39 pass calls, 37 run calls -- than its been in recent games.The
    backs did a great job and came up with hard, physical runs, center Jason Kelce
    said. Ryan had a great day. Even when we didnt block guys, he made guys
    miss.Wentz finished 25 of 36 for 231 yards. He connected six times with Jordan
    Matthews for 73 yards and six times with Zach Ertz for 55 yards.The run game was
    huge, Wentz said. It was good to get Ryan the ball, feed him the rock, and he
    was running angry. That makes my job easier.The Eagles (5-4) snapped a two-game
    losing streak and remained unbeaten at home in four games.When Ryan, Julio Jones
    and Co. were on the field, Philadelphias defense held them down. The Falcons
    came in averaging 33.9 points per game but didnt find the end zone until Ryan
    threw a 76-yard touchdown pass to Taylor Gabriel in the fourth quarter to give
    Atlanta (6-4) a 15-13 lead.Jones had 10 catches for 135 yards , but he couldnt
    make catches to extend drives twice down the stretch.---
