Kyle Schwarber hammered two home runsĀ 

Schwarber hit two home runs in the Phillies' 11-0 victory over the Nationals on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park.

"I feel like we're getting close to the stride," Schwarber said. "Everyone is figuring each other out."

We wish we had started off better, but that is the reality of the situation.

Before the Phillies offence blew the game open in the middle innings, Schwarber set the tone.

In the first inning, Schwarber hit a leadoff home run to centre field.

Schwarber leads the National League in home runs with 25.

Schwarber's 17 leadoff homers are the most in franchise history.
