Earlier in the season, pitcher John Lannan shook off the idea of having extra motivation against the Washington Nationals, the organization that drafted him in 2005.
Phillies manager Charlie Manuel shot down that notion Monday.
"Oh, I'm sure he does," Manuel said. "I think that's kind of natural. I know I would. I might be jumping up and down."

Lannan had every reason to do that after the Phillies' 3-2 victory, which snapped the Nationals' four-game winning streak.

In the eight shutout innings he threw, the left-hander allowed four hits and two walks. Just one baserunner — Ryan Zimmerman in the fourth inning — reached second base. He threw 109 pitches, 71 for strikes.
"I'm pretty sure this will feel pretty good when I kind of look back on it when things slow down," Lannan said. "Any time you go eight shutout innings, you feel good about it."
It was just the seventh time in 93 career starts that Lannan completed eight innings, and only the second time in the big leagues that he went eight scoreless innings (the other was July 21, 2009 vs. the Mets).
Of the 24 outs Lannan recorded, 10 were ground-ball outs; four were strikeouts.
"That's what I have to do. Keep the ball on the ground," Lannan said. "I'm not a strikeout guy. It's a good-hitting ball club. You just have to keep them off balance with the two-seam [fastball] and the change-up."
Lannan retired the side in order four times. There's no doubt the defense behind him was impressed at the way he was attacking Nationals hitters.
"I was about asleep out there," Dom Brown joked.
The only other time Lannan faced Washington was on June 17, the day after he came off an almost two-month stint on the disabled list. He gave up two runs in five innings that day and got a no-decision.
It was the Phillies' fifth win in their last seven games and the 39th time this year they collected 10 or more hits.
