It wasn't a happy return for former Phillies outfielder Jayson Werth and his Nationals to Philadelphia. The Nationals lost three out of four games in the series to their rivals, and are now six games behind the first place Atlanta Braves in the NL East, and just a game and a half up on the Phillies for third place in the division.
After Thursday's 3-1 loss, Werth (who played well in the series, going 6/13 with two homers) was conducting an interview with several reporters. A CSN Philly microphone kept getting closer to him, eventually bumping into his beard. Werth got frustrated by that, and abruptly ended the interview after getting poked. Let's just go ahead and throw this in the catalog of things not going right for the Nationals this season, shall we?
