The Phillies scored a franchise-record 12 runs in the first in a 17-3 victory over the Nationals on Saturday night, the most runs they have scored in a game since they posted 22 on the Reds on July 6, 2009.

The Phillies began the inning having scored just 14 runs in four games, but a combination of nine hits (including three doubles and one triple), four walks and two sacrifice flies put them within a run of the franchise record for most runs in an inning overall.
