Nationals SP Max Scherzer earns fifth win of season Friday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer allowed one run on four hits over eight innings of work to earn his fifth win of the season during Friday's 2-1 win over the Phillies.

By going eight innings, Scherzer became the first Nationals pitcher since Livan Hernandez in 2005 to pitch at least seven innings in seven-straight starts.

"He's got all four pitches that he's able to throw for strikes," said Nationals manager Matt Williams, per MLB.com. "That's key for any pitcher, I think. If you have four pitches you can throw for a strike at any time, as a hitter I would know that I just couldn't sit on something, or I'd find myself behind in the count."

Scherzer (5-3) struck out six batters and walked one during Friday's start. He was able to lower his ERA from 1.75 to 1.67. The one run Scherzer allowed during the game came in the second inning when Odubel Herrera doubled in Maikel Franco.

His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday at the Chicago Cubs.

Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer strikes out 11 in win on Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer tossed seven scoreless innings, allowing four hits in Washington's 4-1 win over the Padres on Saturday.

Scherzer struck out a season-high 11 hitters in the contest, the third time he's struck out double digit batters. Scherzer's only issue came in the fourth when loaded the bases on a walk to Yangervis Solarte. He was able to get out of the inning by forcing a pop up by Will Middlebrooks.

"He's incredible. He is one of the best I've ever seen," teammate Bryce Harper said, per MLB.com. "Being able to play behind that and see his mentality, how fired up he gets. He is such a bulldog out there. It's all fun to watch. I'm glad he is on my team."

Scherzer, now 4-3, lowered his ERA to 1.75 in 56 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Saturday against the Phillies.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Scherzer (3-3) has surrendered two runs or less in six of his seven starts this season. His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday at San Diego.

Nationals to start Scherzer Monday, Strasburg (shoulder) Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Nationals have named Max Scherzer the starter for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks, with Stephen Strasburg (shoulder) scheduled to pitch Tuesday.

Strasburg developed a shoulder injury in his previous start Tuesday, and the team has decided to give him an extra day of rest rather than skip him completely. Scherzer will be pitching on normal rest Monday after earning a win Wednesday.

Nationals RHP Max Scherzer gets run support in Wednesday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

One pitch to mighty Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton turned a fine outing into a mediocre one Wednesday for Nationals starter Max Scherzer, but he still emerged with a victory.

"I had great stuff today," Scherzer said, via masnsports.com. "Willy [Ramos] and I, we were on a really good run right there and I thought we're really getting on the same page of what to throw and what different situations. Really, thought I only made two mistakes today. One to Ichiro [Suzuki] there in the second inning when he was able to get a single there, and obviously the last one to [Giancarlo] Stanton."

Scherzer, who entered with a 1-3 record despite a microscopic 1.26 ERA, deserved the run support in a 7-5 win. He gave up five earned runs on 10 hits, including the three-run homer to Stanton in the eighth inning. Most impressive were his zero walks and 10 strikeouts.

"I really thought everything was on today," Scherzer said. "I really felt like I had command of all the pitches. I was really attacking the zone. I was able to locate the fastball to both side and so I can mix and match. That's when I have success. I feel like that is product of why I had so much success there through the first seven innings."

The right-hander fell behind on run-scoring singles by Ichiro Suzuki and Adeiny Hechavarria in the second, but three home runs by Bryce Harper gave him plenty of cushion. He yielded just two hits with seven strikeouts over the next five innings.

Scherzer will seek to even his record Tuesday at Arizona.
