  • Jayson Werth's stumble allows Daniel Murphy to clear bases with double

    In a game started by Max Scherzer and Matt Harvey, chances are the scoring opportunities will be few and far between for the opposing offenses. That proved to be the case again on Friday night as the two aces met up in a classic battle at Citi Field in New York. 

    Unfortunately for the Washington Nationals, while Max Scherzer did his job, their lack of offense and overall struggles on defense — in this case, Jayson Werth's untimely stumble — proved to be their downfall again as they dropped the game 4-0. 

    Bad offense and really bad defense is a bad combination under any circumstances. That much shouldn't have to be explained. But it's especially bad in games where one play — whether it be a home run, a wild pitch, or a defensive miscue — can provide all the separation that's needed.
