      Max Scherzer (17-7) took the loss Friday as the Washington Nationals fell 10-5 to the Braves, coughing up six runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings while striking out six.Scherzer never settled into a rhythm after a scoreless first inning, and the right-hander was clearly bothered by the humidity on a warm night in Atlanta.

Scherzer will take a 2.53 ERA into his next outing Friday at home against the Mets.
