Werth, Feliz hit back-to-back homers in Phils' win

Sep 10, 2009 - 4:02 AM WASHINGTON(AP) -- Jayson Werth and Pedro Feliz hit back-to-back homers in the eighth inning, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 6-5 win against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night.

Ryan Madson pitched the ninth in place of struggling closer Brad Lidge, earning his sixth save in 11 chances as Philadelphia beat the Nationals for the ninth straight time. Cliff Lee (6-2) pitched seven-plus innings to get the win, allowing five runs and 10 hits.

Werth's leadoff drive on a 3-1 pitch from Tyler Clippard (2-2) gave the Phillies a 5-4 lead. It was his second in two games and No. 33 on the year.

Feliz followed with his 10th of the season, a shot that landed in the left-field seats beyond Philadelphia's bullpen.
