The Phillies mid-day victory on Wednesday to complete the sweep of the Miami Marlins coupled with the Washington Nationals getting defeated by the New York Mets by a final of 10-1 moves Charlie Manuel's squad into second place in the NL East.

Here's an enjoyable tweet from Nats beat writer Mark Zuckerman.

It's over. #Nats are back under .500 and in 3rd place in NL East for 1st time since final day of 2011 season.

In other Nats' news, Stephen Strasburg hit the DL this afternoon with a lat strain. He's eligible to return on June 16th.

Not as good news if you look at the above graphic: the Braves have rattled off five-straight Ws.

At least the Phils are moving in the right direction as of late.
