Scherzer pitches 7 scoreless innings, Nats beat Braves 3-1

CARDINALS 2, PIRATES 1: Dexter Fowler tripled and scored, Mike Leake pitched into the seventh inning and the St. Louis Cardinals beat Pittsburgh. So I kind of stepped back to the back of the mound for a minute while everybody was kind of getting back into position. "It was just a mess".

Washington's Adam Eaton kept up the hot start for his new team with an RBI single.

The Nationals snapped Atlanta's five-game winning streak and handed the Braves their first loss at new SunTrust Park.

"I think a year ago he would have been five innings and out of the game", Freeman said. With Scherzer set to oppose Mike Foltynewicz in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 7.5 runs. What made it interesting is the fact that (according to ESPN's Home Run Tracker) BP hasn't hit a home run that deep in seven years, which is when he sent a grand slam 439 feet at Miller Park.

Sparked by the debut of their new suburban stadium, the Braves swept San Diego in a four-game series and climbed to.500 after a 1-6 start. "That's all I got to say". The 4-0 start at SunTrust was the best home start for the Braves since a 5-0 start in 1997 in the first season at Turner Field.

But Washington has dominated its division rival over the last two-plus season, improving to 37-13 over their last 50 meetings.

Jonathan Schoop singled home a run in the second, and Manny Machado hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth. Against the Nationals, he didn't allow a runner to reach second base until the fourth inning, when Bryce Harper led off with a broken-bat bloop double. Treinen, who has a 7.11 ERA with three saves in four chances, will shift to a setup role.

"We've got to do something to shore up our closer situation", Baker said. Washington will recall RHP Joe Ross and place him in the rotation, beginning with Wednesday's game in Atlanta.

Braves: OF Matt Kemp (right hamstring tightness) may come off the 10-day DL on Thursday after having one hit in seven innings in an injury rehab game with Triple A Gwinnett. Washington is 6-1 in Strasburg's last 7 starts against the Braves and 5-1 in his last 6 road starts against Atlanta.

REDS 9, ORIOLES 3: Adam Duvall hit his first career grand slam, Joey Votto had a two-run shot and Bronson Arroyo got his first win in nearly three years, helping the Cincinnati Reds beat the Baltimore Orioles. But Braves catcher Kurt Suzuki alertly threw to third base when Harper tried to sneak a stolen base, and Harper was thrown out trying to retreat to second.
