ABC News

Max Scherzer will start Game 3 of the NLDS for the Washington Nationals. Manager Dusty Baker made the announcement before Friday's opener against the Chicago Cubs. "We're going to go Gio tomorrow," Baker said, "and then Max will go -- slated to go Game 3." Scherzer, who is Washington's ace and the reigning NL Cy Young winner, exited his final regular-season start on Sept. 30 after suffering what he called a "small tweak" in his right hamstring.
