WASHINGTON (AP) - Michael Young scored the go-ahead run from first base on a single in the eighth inning, and Domonic Brown homered and hit an RBI double as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 5-3 Saturday night.

The win evened the three-game series and gives the Phillies another chance to reach .500 in Sunday's finale - when they can also catch the Nationals for second place in the NL East.

Young walked and came home on Delmon Young's single to the right-field corner, stretching his hand across the plate to beat Bryce Harper's throw to break a 3-all tie. Pinch-runner Michael Martinez then scored on Brown's double to right-center.
