Ryan Howard hit a two-run homer to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to their sixth straight victory, 5-2 over the Washington Nationals on Saturday night.

Jayson Werth and Raul Ibanez also homered for the Phillies, who maintained a three-game lead over the Atlanta Braves in the NL East.

Howard's drive in the third gave him five straight seasons with at least 30 homers and 100 RBIs, setting a new franchise record that was previously held by Hall of Famer Chuck Klein.

Kyle Kendrick (10-9) gave up hits to his first two batters but settled after that. In six innings he gave up two runs and six hits. He struck out three and walked one.
