Tigers 5 @ Nats 4.


Same score as Monday, except the reverse score. Nats got started first with an Espi single in the 2nd, before a Nick Castellanos homer in the 4th put the Tigers up 2-1. Ryan Zimmerman 2 run homer would put the Nats back up 3-2 in the 5th, before the Tigers would take the lead for good in the 6th; James McCann single tied the game, an Andrew Romine fielders choice put them in the lead, and a Miguel Cabrera gave them an insurance run they would need as another Zimmerman homer in the 7th gave us our final margin of the night. Michael Fullmer (2-1) pitched 5 innings scattering 7 hits, allowing 3 runs with 3 walks, 6 strikeouts and 1 homer. Drew VerHagen (1st hold), Justin Wilson (9th hold), and Alex Wilson (2nd hold) combined to pitch 3 innings allowing 3 hits, 1 run with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts. Francisco Rodriguez (8th save) pitched a scoreless 9th with 1 walk, 1 hit and 1 strikeout. Joe Ross (3-2) pitched 6 innings allowed 5 runs on 8 hits with 2 walks and 4 strikeouts.


Wednesday concludes the series, and the rubber game of this 3 game interleague series, and this is an intriguing matchup as both pitchers will face their ex-teams, and both teams should be very familiar with what they throw. Max Scherzer (3-2, 4.60) faces the Tigers for the first time since the 2013 Al Cy Young award winner left the organization after the 2014 season. Jordan Zimmermann (5-1, 1.10) returns to Nats Park for the first time as a visitor. Even though he was overshadowed by Strasburg, and last year with Scherzer, Zimmermann was the most consistent starter for the Nats. Since his first season back from TJ surgery in 2011 he averaged 31 starts a season, and in 2014 recorded the first career no hitter in Nationals history. This year he has been one of the better pitchers in the American League, and the anchor of the Tigers rotation so far as the veterans behind him Justin Verlander and Anibal Sanchez have really floundered this year. Game time scheduled for 7:05 PM.

Tigers 2 @ Nationals 3.


This game was all about Max Scherzer. 9 of the first 10 outs he recorded were strikeouts on his way to tying a MLB record with 20 strikeouts for the game. He's the first pitcher since Randy Johnson in 2001 to strike out 20 in a game in a list that only includes Roger Clemens & Kerry Wood and also joins Johnson as the only pitchers to record a no hitter and a 20 strikeout game in their careers. However, if this was last year Scherzer probably doesn't even get a chance to record history, as "by the book" Matt Williams would have taken him out at least 3 times. With a 3-1 lead to begin the 9th he might've brought on Papelbon to get the save, he probably would've taken him out after JD Martinez homered to begin the 9th, and definitely would've taken him out after Victor Martinez doubled 2 batters later. I had reservations about Dusty when he was hired, but so far I love him. He trusts his players and doesn't go by a book that says "in this situation, you do this" like Matty did. The other scoring in this game came on 2 singles by Murphy in the 1st and the 6th, and 2 homers: 1 from Jose Inglesis of the Tigers, and the other from the Nats Espinosa which set up the 9th inning and history. Scherzer (4-2) was the winner allowing 6 hits, 2 runs on 2 homers, 0 walks, and tying an MLB record with 20 strikeouts in 9 innings. Jordan Zimmermann (5-2) took his 2nd straight loss after winning 5 straight to begin the year allowing 7 hits, 3 runs on 1 homer in 7 innings with 3 walks and 3 strikeouts.


Nationals are off Thursday and will resume play Friday with a 4 game series Friday with the Marlins (which includes a double header Saturday). Gio Gonzalez (2-1, 2.19) gets the ball for the Nats, while the Marlins will hand the ball to Tom Koehler (2-3, 5.83), with a game time scheduled for 7:05. Tigers stay in the area and head up 95 to Baltimore to begin a 4 game series at Baltimore that begins Thursday.

Scherzer's best game ever IMO.


BTW, The East, except for Braves, has been excellent so far.

Marlins 3 @ Nats 5.


Marlins scored in the 5th on a Murphy throwing error which scored 2 runners. Stephen Drew tied the game with a 2 out, 2 run homer pinch hitting for Oliver Perez in the 6th inning. Harper added a 2 run homer in the 7th to take the lead for good. Chris Johnson had a RBI groundout in the 8th to cut the lead to one, and Heisey added a solo home run in the 8th for the final margin. Gio Gonzalez pitched 5 innings allowing 6 hits, 2 runs (0 earned), with 7 strikeouts and 2 walks. Blake Treinen (3-1) pitched 2 innings allowing 2 hits, 1 run, 1 strikeout and 0 walks. Felipe Rivero (4th hold) got the first out of the 9th on a strikeout, while Papelbon (10th save) finished the 9th with 1 strikeout. Tom Koehler pitched 5.2 innings allowing 6 hits, 1 run with 5 walks and 4 strikeouts. Bryan Morris (2nd blown save) pitched 0.1 innings allowing 1 hit, and 1 run on Stephen Drew's homer which tied the score, while Kyle Barraclough (2-1) pitched 1 inning with 1 walk striking out the side, but allowed the homer to Harper.


Double header today. First game starts at 1:05 and the pitching matchup is Justin Nicolino (2-0, 2.79) for the Marlins opposed by Stephen Strasburg (5-0, 2.76).

Game 1: Marlins 4 @ Nats 6.


Christian Yelich put the Fish up front 1-0 with a homer in the first. Nats took the lead for good in the bottom half when Justin Nicolino walked the bases loaded on 14 pitches, Murphy & Zimmerman added sac flies, and Werth finished the scoring with a single to bring home the 3 guys that begin with walks. Marlins would cut it one in the 5th on a Yelich double to left, Nats would get that back in the bottom half on a Rendon double. Teams would trade runs again in the 6th as the Marlins got back to within 1 on a Jeff Mathis single, before the Nats got it back with a Ramos home run that just cleared the wall in left-center. A Martin Prado single in the 7th got the Marlins back to within 1 again, and the Nats finished the scoring in the 8th on a Taylor double, and a fielding error on Marcel Ozuna scored den Dekker from first. Strasburg (6-0) pitched 6 innings allowing 5 hits, 3 runs, 3 walks, 7 strikeouts, and 1 home run allowed. Felipe Rivero (5th hold) & Shawn Kelley (3rd hold) combined to throw 2 innings allowing 3 hits, 1 run, 0 walks and 4 strikeouts. Papelbon (11th save) worked around 2 walks in the 9th but had 0 hits and 1 strikeout in locking down the 11th save in 13 chances. Nicolina (2-1) took his first loss of the year pitching 4.2 with 5 hits, 4 runs, 5 walks and 1 strikeout.


Game 2 goes at 7:05 (barring rain, it was pouring towards the end of game 1). Tanner Roark (2-2, 2.03) pitches for the Nats and he'll be opposed by Kendry Flores (season debut). Flores appeared in 7 games last year and allowed 8 runs (7 earned) and 16 hits in 12 2/3 innings spanning 7 appearances (1 start).

Game 2: Marlins 7 @ Nats 1.


Luckily I missed this and doesn't sound like I missed much. Miguel Rojas and Derek Dietrich had RBI base hits in the 2nd to put the Marlins up 2-0, and Justin Bouer added a homer in the 3rd to go up 3-0. Drew had a sac fly in the 4th for the Nats only runs of the game, while the Marlins finished the scoring with RBI singles from Marcel Ozuna and JT Realmuto in the 5th. Kendry Flores pitched 3 innings allowing 0 runs, 1 hit, 3 walks and 1 strikeout before leaving with a sprained shoulder, so the win went to Jose Urena (1-0) who also pitched 3 innings allowing 1 run on 2 hits and 1 walk with 0 strikeouts. Tanner Roark (2-3) suffered another loss to the Marlins as he pitched 5 innings allowing all 7 runs on 8 hits, with 3 walks, 5 strikeouts, and 1 home run allowed. Roark in 3 starts vs. the fish sticks this year has an 8.40 ERA and has allowed 14 of his 17 earned runs this year. In the rest of his starts he has allowed 3 earned runs and has an ERA of 0.79. In 3 starts against other NL opponents he has an ERA of 0.00! Yup, that's right. His other 3 earned runs was in his start against the Royals. His next scheduled start is next weekend in Miami against the Marlins. They had an off day this past Thursday and have another off day on Monday, hopefully they can skip Roark next Friday in the rotation, or at the worst move him back to the Mets series at home the following week.


Series concludes Sunday: Jose Fernandez (4-2, 3.54) takes the ball for the Marlins who will be opposed by Joe Ross (3-2, 2.29) who takes the ball for the Nats. Game time at 1:35.

Marlins 5 @ Mets 1.


Marlins scored 2 unearned runs in the 3rd as the ghost of Murphy's defense carried onto Stephen Drew, and Drew's throwing error with 2 outs in 3rd put the Marlins in front. Nats cut the lead in 1 when Zimmerman hit a ball to right center that caused Giancarlo Stanton & Marcel Ozuna to run into each other which helped Zimmerman hit an inside-the-park home run. Marlins would finish the scoring in the 6th: Stanton would hit his own home run - this one way out of the stadium, and Jose Fernandez added a 2 run single with 2 outs in the inning for the final margin. Fernandez (5-2) pitched 7 innings allowing 4 hits, 1 run, 1 homer, 3 walks and struck out 11. After Kyle Barraclough put the first 2 runners on in the 9th, A.J. Ramos (11th save) got the next 3 batters out with 1 on a strikeout. Joe Ross (3-3) pitched 5.2 innings, allowing 7 hits, 5 runs (3 earned), 1 homer, 3 strikeouts and 2 walks.


First series against the 2015 Eastern division champions starts on Tuesday in Queens against the Mets. Max Scherzer (4-2, 4.15) takes the ball for the first time since he tied a MLB record with 20 strikeouts, while Noah Syndergaard (3-2, 2.53) takes the ball for the Mets. Game time scheduled for 7:10. Marlins start a 3 game series in Philadelphia which begins on Monday.

Nats 0 @ Mets 2.


Curtis Granderson lead off home run in the first, Michael Conforto home run in the 3rd. That was all the scoring. That's also the 13th home runs Scherzer has allowed this season, the most in the NL, and tied for the most in the majors, and 30 home runs since the 2015 All Star Break, the most in the majors. And with Noah Syndergaard dealing they would've been in good hands with just the Granderson homer. Granted, most of them have been solo home runs which I guess could be better then if they were 13 grand slams, but 13 home runs is 13 home runs. You could dress a pig up in a tuxedo & loafers, but it's still going to a pig. Scherzer (4-3) pitched 6.2 allowing 3 hits, 2 runs (2 homers), 3 walks (& 1 hit batter), with 10 strikeouts. Syndergaard went 7 allowing 5 hits, 0 walks and 10 strikeouts, and was never seriously threatened. The only runner that got past 2nd was Zimmerman who had 1 out double in the 2nd and advanced to 3rd on a Rendon single to left, but got Ramos to ground into a double play to end the threat. The only other runner that got to 2nd was Ben Revere who singled with 1 out in the 6th, but then got caught stealing which was a pretty terrible call as even the SNY crew was saying Revere should've been safe. Only 1 other Nat got on base after that and they got left on first. Addison Reed (8th hold) pitched a 1-2-3 8th with 2 strikeouts, and Jeurys Familia (13th save) pitched a 1-2-3 9th.


Game 2 Wednesday. Gio Gonzalez (2-1, 1.93) squares off against Bartolo Colon (3-2, 3.53). Game time scheduled for 7:10.

Nats 7 @ Mets 1.


Murphy had a single in the 3rd that hit off the bag to put the Nats in front. Yoenis Cespedes hit a homer in the 4th to tie it at 1, and the Nats took the lead for good in the 5th when Rendon had a 2 RBI single with 2 outs. Nats added 2 in the 7th on a Murphy sac fly, and an Espinosa walk with the bases loaded, and they plated the final 2 runs in the 9th on a Ramos single. Gio Gonzalez (3-1) pitched 6.1 innings allowing 5 hits, 1 run (1 homer), with 5 strikeouts and 1 walk. Felipe Rivero (6th hold) came into the game with the bases loaded and pitched a scoreless inning with 1 strikeout to record the hold. Bartolo Colon (3-3) who got ousted earlier in the day by the New York media for having a secret love life was uncharacteristically wild pitching 4.2 innings with 5 hits, 3 runs, with more walks than strikeouts (5 to 4).


Final game of the series is Thursday: Stephen Strasburg (6-0, 2.95) takes the ball for the Nats while Matt Harver (3-5, 4.93) takes the ball for the Mets. Game time scheduled for 7:10.

Nats 9 @ Mets 1.


Murphy home run in the 1st, Asdrubal Cabrera single in the first to cut the Nats lead to one at 2-1, Nats scored the final 7 in the 3rd all off Harvey when the Nats sent 11 batters to the plate. Zimmerman grounded into a fielders choice and reached on an error when Cabrera bobbled a grounder, Rendon doubled to left when the ball hit off of Michael Conforto's glove, Ramos single drove in 2 more to make it 7-1, and Ben Revere, in his second hit and 2nd AB of the inning tripled to center, which knocked out Matt Harvey from the game. Strasburg (7-0) pitched 6 innings allowing 6 hits, 1 run, with 1 walk, and 10 strikeouts. Harvey (3-6) was a complete disaster as he got knocked out in the 3rd after just 2.2 innings allowing 8 hits, 9 runs (only 6 earned), 2 walks, 2 strikeouts, 1 homer, and 61 pitches to record only 8 outs.


Nats head to Miami to face the Marlins for a weekend series. By the time the weekend ends this will already be the 13th time they've played the Marlins this year, and they've played the other 3 East teams a total of 15 times (Braves 6 games, Phillies 6 games and the Mets 3 games). Tanner Roark (2-3, 3.10), and his 0-3 record and 8.40 ERA in 3 starts against the Marlins takes the ball for the Nats, while Justin Nicolino (2-1, 3.75) starts for the Marlins. Game time at 7:10. Mets stay at home and play a 3 game series with the Brewers this weekend.
