6/26/2015 | Imperfect Scherzer still dominant over Phillies

For the third consecutive start, Max Scherzer flirted with a no-hitter, but after 16 straight full hitless innings, Scherzer proved to be human on Friday as the Nationals defeated the Phillies, 5-2, at Citizens Bank Park. Aaron Harang allowed all five runs (four earned) over six frames.


6/26/2015 | Scherzer's success built on hard work
