The Nats offense exploded again, scoring 10 runs to help Stephen Strasburg win in his hometown of San Diego and cap a 5-2 road trip.
Within an hour after nearly getting no-hit by the Atlanta Braves, the Miami Marlins fired manager Mike Redmond and bench coach Rob Leary.
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?
Max Scherzer pitched brilliantly for seven innings, striking out a season-high 11 and holding San Diego to four hits in leading the Washington Nationals to a 4-1 victory Saturday night.
