Nationals OF Bryce Harper hits 16th home run of season Friday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper smacked his 16th home run of the season during Friday's 2-1 win over the Phillies.

"See it and hit," Harper said, per MLB.com. "Plain and simple. Just trying to see and hit the ball, and I wasn't really thinking too much. He'd get 1-2 and throw a heater over. He was a little sneaky in the first three at-bats for those three guys. I was just guessing heater, and I guessed right and connected."

The solo home run came in the second inning off pitcher Sean O'Sullivan. The home run was Harper's lone hit in two at-bats during the game. He walked and struck out once during the contest.

Over his last 14 games, Harper is 24 for 46 with 11 home runs and 24 RBI. During that time, he has raised his average from .265 to .336.

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 GM Rizzo: Still no timetable for Anthony Rendon's return
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon's knee is 100 percent and he feels no pain in his oblique, general manager Mike Rizzo told MLB Network Radio on Friday. However, Rizzo still doesn't have a timetable for Rendon's activation off the disabled list.

Rendon is fielding grounders and taking swings in the batting cage, but he is not quite ready to resume a rehab assignment, manager Matt Williams said Wednesday. Rendon was on a rehab assignment in early May before having to stop because of an oblique strain.

Williams said Friday that Rendon fielded around 40 grounders and turned some double plays at second base. He also took part in live batting practice for the first time since suffering his oblique injury.
