[July 29, 2017]  (Reuters) - The Washington Nationals acquired outfielder/second baseman Howie Kendrick in a trade with the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.

Washington sent minor league pitcher McKenzie Mills in exchange for the veteran 34-year-old Kendrick.

Kendrick joins a Nationals team that is dominating the National League East and holds a 13 1/2-game advantage in the division.

Kendrick hit .340 with two homers in 39 games for the Phillies this season.
