Heroes and Zeroes: Nationals 8, Marlins 2

Giancarlo Stanton finally got a hit, and Ichiro! got two hits closer to 3,000, but the rest of the Marlins didn't do anything to write home about in their six-run loss to the Nats on Sunday afternoon.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports


Max Scherzer (WAS) +22.3%

Scherzer, a Cy Young Award winner back in 2013, struck out eight Marlins in eight strong innings, walking nobody and allowing six hits for an in-game WHIP of 0.750. He gave up two earned runs, both on Justin Bour's seventh inning home run, and got 76-of-103 pitches over the plate to earn a GameScore of 70. He raised his record on the season to 5-3 and lowered his ERA down to 3.80.

Ben Revere (WAS) +14.0%

Revere led off out of center field for the Nationals. His first two plate appearances would see him single, steal second, and score the first two runs of the game. He added two RBI in the sixth on a single to right field, taking second on a Giancarlo Stanton error.

Anthony Rendon (WAS) +10.5%

Rendon doubled to left in the third inning, knocking in Daniel Murphy for a 3-0 lead. He walked and scored in the sixth, then tripled two runners around to score in the ninth for an 8-2 lead.

Conley pitched 5.1 innings, allowing 14 of 28 plate appearances get on base (seven hits and seven walks) for a 2.625 in-game WHIP. He had a GameScore of 25 and saw his record drop to 3-3 while his ERA grew by six runs, to 4.15. He got 58-of-106 pitches in the strike zone, but seven walks will never get it done. He did strike out two Nationals.

Multi hit game from the Heroes — with Stanton breaking out with a homer (two points for Suzuki); Conley 5 innings, 3 runs allowed, 4 walks, 1 k

*Paolo - not sure how to get this across to you. Please use the format that everyone else does. If you say "5 innings, 3 runs allowed, 4 walks, 1 k," that is exactly what needs to happen for you to get any credit. If you want to hedge your bets, say 5+ innings, 3- runs allowed, 4+walks, etc.
