Player Notes
Max Scherzer pitched seven shutout innings and struck out 13 as the Nationals beat the Cubs 3-0 on Wednesday.

Advice: It's Scherzer's fifth career start with at least 13 strikeouts and first with the Nationals. He's won five straight starts since opening the season 1-3, and he has a 1.51 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP overall. He might have enough of a head start on Clayton Kershaw to qualify as the NL Cy Young favorite, though we'd still take Kershaw for the rest of the season.

Max Scherzer fired eight innings of one-run ball against the Phillies on Friday, picking up his fifth victory of the season.

Advice: The All-Star right-hander allowed just four hits and a walk while striking out six. He has been everything that the Nationals had hoped for when inking him to his massive free agent deal this winter, posting a 1.67 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 72/9 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep things rolling on Wednesday when he does battle against the Cubs in Chicago.
