WASHINGTON (AP) Austin Voth threw his first career complete game and earned his first victory in 10 starts this season, and the Washington Nationals staved off playoff elimination with a 5-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday.

Philadelphia (27-28) is in the eighth and final playoff spot at .4909, just ahead of Milwaukee and San Francisco (26-27) at .4906. The defending World Series champion Nationals (22-32) have only a distant chance of reaching the postseason.

Voth (1-5) posted season highs in innings (seven) and strikeouts (seven), allowing three hits and one run. It was an especially welcome effort for the Nationals, who were playing their third doubleheader in five days.
