Phillies Lose Game To Nationals Utley to Broken Hand

Not a stellar day for the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday, not only did they lose the game 7-6 to the Washington Nationals they lost their second baseman. Chase Utley who has had a tremendous season for Philadelphia hitting .326 with 17 homers and 82 RBI was hit on the hand in the fifth inning by Washington pitcher John Lannan. Utley toughed it out and stayed in the game going 2-4 but after the game X-Rays showed a break in the hand. Utley said he was bummed out, but he did not believe it was a serious break, and believes he will return to playing in less than a month. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said that Abraham Nunez would fill in at the keystone spot.
