Yunel Escobar, Wilson Ramos, Tyler Moore out of Nationals' lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Phillies. Escobar was questionable with a groin injury. He's been replaced by Danny Espinosa, who is batting seventh in the lineup.

Manager Matt Williams said Escobar "felt pretty good" Saturday morning. He will receive an MRI. 

Infielder Emmanuel Burriss is not in the starting lineup for Washington's Triple-A affiliate, Syracuse, leaving open the possibility that Escobar may be placed on the disabled list later today. 

Two other Nationals regulars are out of Saturday's lineup: Catcher Wilson Ramos and left fielder Tyler Moore. Jose Lobaton gets the start at catcher, batting eighth. Clint Robinson is in left, batting fifth.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Making his major-league debut, Nationals reliever Felipe Rivero struck out two batters in the ninth inning of Friday night's 7-2 win over the Phillies. 

With the game in hand, Rivero entered the game in a no-pressure situation. He did allow three hits and an earned run, which was scored via a Ryan Howard RBI single. His fastball was clocking in the mid-90s, which helped him strike out Cody Asche and Darin Ruf.

Nationals P Max Scherzer strikes out 9 in win over Phillies
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer pitched eight dominant innings in Friday night's 7-2 win over the Phillies. 

Scherzer gave up only one earned run, which came in the third inning. Scherzer was in command the entire game, dictating the tempo with each batter. He struck out nine hitters and walked zero. 

"I'm just glad he's on my team," right fielder Bryce Harper said, per MLB.com.  "He's one of the best in all of baseball. I've been saying that since Spring Training. Him going out there, being able to go seven or eight strong for us, it's very impressive. He's a bulldog out there, he's got that mentality that he wants to kick your teeth in and really go at it, and he's very, very good out there."

He only gave up four hits through the game. 

Scherzer's next projected start is on April 23 against the Cardinals.
