Pitch, Hit and Run: Scherzer does it all in win

Max Scherzer did it all Friday night, using his arm, his bat and his legs to lead the Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the Phillies.

Pitch, hit and run (and win)

At the end of a night in which his starting pitcher tossed eight brilliant innings, recorded a key base hit and scored the eventual game-winning run, Matt Williams summed up Max Scherzer in six words. “He loves to play the game,” the Nationals manager said. Why wouldn’t Scherzer be having the time of his life…

Scherzer, Harper pace Nationals to sixth straight win

The Washington Nationals signed Max Scherzer this offseason for his right arm. Nine starts into the season, it has been utterly impressive: a 1.67 ERA, 72 strikeouts and at least seven innings in eight of those starts, including eight spectacular frames in Friday’s 2-1 win. But Scherzer, a fierce competitor and a good all-around athlete, doesn’t ignore the rest of his game. Read full article >>

Nats 2, Phillies 1: Harper homers, Scherzer dominates

GAME IN NUTSHELL: Max Scherzer and Sean O’Sullivan had squared off twice already this season prior to Friday night, with Scherzer prevailing both times. And in each of those games, the Nationals ace was buoyed by a Bryce Harper homer off O’Sullivan. So what happened in meeting No. 3 of the season? The exact same…

Game 42: Phillies at Nats

For all the attention he’s been getting for what he does on the days he doesn’t pitch, Max Scherzer maybe hasn’t been getting enough attention for what does on those fifth days. Because he’s been fantastic, better than most even figured he would be when the Nationals signed him over the winter. Scherzer, who takes…

Marty Niland: Solid anchor Scherzer has been worth every penny - Nationals Buzz

Where would Nats be without Max Scherzer?

The Nats were supposed to have the best rotation in baseball and Max Scherzer was just a bonus. Now, where would they be without him?

Where would Nats be without Scherzer?

When the Nationals first signed Max Scherzer to a record free-agent deal in January, many of us – including yours truly – scratched their heads. The Nats already had by most accounts the deepest rotation in baseball and by some numbers, such as starters ERA, the best. Where would Tanner Roark go? Was the move…

Nationals 4, Padres 1: Scherzer shuts down San Diego

Tonight, Max Scherzer did exactly what the Nationals are paying him an obscene amount of money to do. For seven scoreless innings he made the Padres offense look foolish, holding them to four hits and two walks while striking out eleven. While we've seen that kind of work from Andrew Cashner before, this was not his game. The Nats touched him for four runs on nine hits and two walks. Some of that was just bad luck; around half of those were seeing eye grounders that slipped through for singles. There were some small highlights tonight. In the top of the third, after Yunel Escobar and Bryce...
