The Philadelphia Phillies notched their fourth straight National League East Division title in a resounding way Monday with an 8-0 whitewashing of the Washington Nationals. Ace right-hander Roy Halladay was masterful again while picking up his 21st win, fourth shutout and ninth complete game, all highs in the majors in 2010. Right fielder Jayson Werth drove in four runs to lead the onslaught in from a predominately Phillies crowd at Nationals Park. Halladay (21-10) heads to the playoffs for the first time in his 13th major league season, having played his entire career with the Toronto Blue Jays before being traded to Philadelphia last winter. The Phillies also sealed home field advantage throughout the playoffs, including the World Series since the National League won the All-Star Game in Anaheim.
