PHILADELPHIA -- Ryan Howard and Cody Asche homered, and A.J. Burnett threw six solid innings to lead the Philadelphia Phillies over the Washington Nationals 7-2 on Saturday night. Jimmy Rollins had four hits and Marlon Byrd doubled and drove in a pair of runs for Philadelphia. The Phillies won for just the third time in 11 games against the Nationals. Adam LaRoche and Zach Walters homered for Washington. The game was delayed for 24 minutes because of heavy rain, lightning and thunder after the sixth. Burnett didnt return after the weather cleared, having thrown 93 pitches. Burnett (2-1) gave up one run on three hits while striking out seven and walking two. The right-hander had seven strikeouts to up his career total to 2,215, moving past Jim Palmer into 52nd all-time. Tanner Roark (2-1) had the poorest start of his two-year career, allowing seven runs on seven hits in four-plus innings. The runs and innings were career-worsts for Roark, who was making his 11th major league start. Howard started the trouble for Roark by hitting an opposite-field, three-run homer in the first. The home run snapped Roarks scoreless streak at 18 innings. Asche connected for a solo shot in the second to make it 4-0. Carlos Ruizs RBI double in the fourth and Byrds two-run single in the fifth gave Philadelphia a 7-0 cushion. LaRoche homered in the sixth. He continued to have success off Burnett, raising his average to .400 (10-for-25) with two homers and six RBIs against the right-hander. LaRoche, who has been slowed by a quadriceps injury, was lifted after hitting the homer. Walters, pinch-hitting in the seventh, homered off Mario Hollands with two outs. 7-2. All three of the rookies hits this season are homers. NOTES: Phillies LHP Cole Hamels (0-2, 6.75) has been scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday because of the flu.

It took 22 seconds for DeRozan to get on the board, taking a lob pass from Joakim Noah and converting the easy layup before knocking down his next two shots. For the Raptors fifth-year guard, this moment was one he had been dreaming about for a long time but to his credit, he never looked out of place. "Honestly, I wasnt nervous at all," he told after scoring eight points in 15 minutes of action for the victorious Eastern Conference squad. "I thought I was going to be nervous before the game but as soon as I went out there I wasnt nervous at all." "It didnt feel like there was any pressure, like you were playing in front of all these people. They just made it fun, honestly. I didnt have no jitters." After a lackluster slate of Saturday night events, the big show did not disappoint. Combined, 318 points were scored - an All-Star record - with the East defeating the West by a score of 163-155. The frenetic pace fit DeRozans game like a glove. "All we do is get out and run, wings get out and run, push it," he said. "Its an opportunity to get fast-break dunks, layups, sorts of things like that so it fits well for a player like me." The East overcame an 18-point deficit, closing out the night on a 10-0 run to win for the first time in four years. Their 163 points were the most scored in an All-Star Game. DeRozans All-Star experience has been surreal. From watching his young teammates Jonas Valanciunas and Terrence Ross compete in the Rising Stars Challenge and the Slam Dunk Contest - both events that he has participated in himself - to sharing the bench with former a teammate and nine-time All-Star Chris Bosh on Sunday, hes had to pinch himself on more than one occasion. It didnt hit him until Sunday evening, as he arrived at Smoothie King Center, walked in the locker room and saw a row of All-Star jerseys instead of his usual Raptors duds.dddddddddddd. "Theres only a select few that get to put on the All-Star jersey," he realizes. That experience of being among them and gaining the respect that accompanies the All-Star tag - which hell wear next to his name for the duration of his career and beyond - was far more valuable than the 15 minutes he logged in the game. "It was a great experience, man," he said. "Just going out there and having fun with the leagues best, to be in that same category is great." It may have been his first appearance in the leagues midseason classic, but the Raptors leading scorer is determined not to make it his last. "[I have to] work harder than I did this previous summer to be a better player," said DeRozan, who is averaging a career-best 22.4 points this season. "I cant slow down. Now Im a target. Players are going to go at me and understand that Ive got the All-Star next to my name. Just continue working, dont be complacent with anything and keep pushing." Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving - a controversial selection when he was voted in as a starter by the fans last month - took home game MVP honours after scoring 31 points to go along with 14 assists. He was a perfect 11-for-11 from inside the three-point arch, many of those field goals were layups. "How Kyrie makes his layups is amazing," DeRozan said of his Eastern Conference teammate. "You cant deny [him] when he gets to the basket; you cant play him a certain way because he can finish with either hand, off either leg and hes so creative with it. It was cool to see him go out and play." Sunday was a night of broken records for both sides. Carmelo Anthony, who had 30 points for the East, connected on eight three pointers, most in an All-Star Game. Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin had 38 points apiece for the West, coming just shy of Wilt Chamberlains mark of 42. 10 of Griffins All-Star Game record 19 field goals were dunks.
