PERSONNEL DEPT.

In a three-game series against the Atlanta Braves July 18-20, the Nationals batted .353, scored 29 runs and belted 42 hits. In the six games that followed, they batted .197, scored nine runs and struck out 35 times. The difference? Well, for one, 3B Ryan Zimmerman is in the lineup. His return hasn't translated into increased run production, even though he's hitting .304 after his nearly two-month hiatus. Before Zimmerman returned on July 22, GM Jim Bowden said: "I hope I don't mess things up. We're a different team with Zim on it."

BY THE NUMBERS

Home runs for the Phillies, second in the NL

QUOTABLE

"We've figured [out] a way to lose a lot of different games in a lot of different ways."

Nationals utility player Paul Lo Duca
