Nats' Scherzer strikes out season-high 13

Max Scherzer allowed three hits over 8 2/3 innings, Bryce Harper and Michael A. Taylor hit two-run homers and the Washington Nationals defeated the San Diego Padres 5-1 on Friday night.

Major boos rained down at Nats Park when interim skipper Chris Speier yanked ace Max Scherzer with two outs in the ninth. Scherzer (13 K's) was one out away from Washington's first complete game of the season, but loaded the bases by allowing a hit, a walk, and an HBP. Newly minted closer Koda Glover finished the job to preserve the 5-1 win over San Diego.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Goodness gracious. Bryce Harper just incinerated the baseball, sending it into the third deck at Nats Park for a two-run jack to give Washington a 5-1 lead over San Diego. Harper's 15 homers are most in the NL.

Jhoulys Chacin has been charged with 7 R in 2/3 of an inning -- he's the 6th starting pitcher to allow at least 7 runs in an appearance of less than 1 inning against the Mets. The last was Dave Mlicki, 2002 Astros (Mlicki was a former Met). Chacin is the 2nd starting pitcher to allow at least 7 runs and 8 hits in less than an inning vs the Mets. The other instance was by Hall-of-Famer Jim Bunning of the 1970 Phillies (also 7 runs, 8 hits).

ESPN Staff  

The Padres recalled 2B Carlos Asuaje from Triple-A El Paso and optioned P Jose Valdez in a corresponding roster move on Tuesday.

Revisiting preseason questions: Padres

In mid-February, we wondered if the Padres could avoid setting a franchise record for losses. So far, San Diego is last in the majors with a run differential of minus-85 and currently in the cellar of the NL West.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Padres P Clayton Richard's five-hitter Sunday vs. the Diamondbacks marked San Diego's first complete game since Andrew Cashner went all nine innings on Sept. 15, 2014. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, eight opposing pitchers had hurled a complete game at Petco Park since the last time a Padres pitcher did so prior to Sunday.
