PHILADELPHIA -- For most pitchers, flirting with a no-hitter might be one of the most memorable days of your career. Mens Air Max 2018 Grey . For Max Scherzer, it was just another day at the office.Scherzer didnt allow a hit until the sixth inning and he was dominant through eight as the Washington Nationals continued their mastery of the Philadelphia Phillies with a 3-2 victory Tuesday night.Scherzer (15-7) allowed three hits and struck out 11 while walking one. He was perfect through the first four innings, striking out five consecutive batters -- all swinging -- between the second and third innings.He has taken a no-hitter into the sixth in nine of his 61 all-time starts with the Nationals, and has allowed just five total hits in his last two outings.Hey man, I mean thats why hes Max, Washington manager Dusty Baker said. You know we had a good chance to win when Max pitches, and theres a good chance of him going deep in the game.Ryan Howard, who got the start despite being 1 for 18 with 11 strikeouts against Scherzer coming in, hit an opposite-field two-run home run in the seventh inning to break up the shutout and pull the Phillies within 3-2.But Scherzer closed the door from there, striking out three more in the seventh and eighth en route to his 15th win of the season.I knew I was throwing the ball well, I knew I had all the pitches working, I knew I could go out there and keep different looks going multiple times throughout the lineup and really sequence guys right, Scherzer said. When Im able to throw all my pitches for strikes it really allows (catcher Wilson Ramos) to do his job back there and come up with the right sequence.Mark Melancon pitched a scoreless ninth for his 37th save, getting a strikeout and inducing a big game-ending double play after issuing a leadoff walk.Freddy Galvis and Odubel Herrera collected the only other hits for the Phillies, who have lost six of eight to fall 12 games below .500. They have dropped their last eight games to first-place Washington, which matches the team record for consecutive losses vs. the Nationals/Expos franchise.We need to improve our plate discipline, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. Were just not getting hits. But Scherzer was dominant, youve got to give him credit. Hes a tough cookie.Scherzer, who pitched two no-hitters last season, didnt allow a runner to reach base until Phillies catcher Cameron Rupp walked with one out in the fifth. Galvis ripped a double to right-field to lead off the sixth to break up Scherzers no-hit bid, but was picked off second base by Scherzer to end the scoring threat.The Washington ace also had a sacrifice-bunt RBI in the fourth after Ryan Zimmerman walked and Danny Espinosa ripped a single.The Nationals staked Scherzer to an early lead in the first inning. With two outs and nobody on, Daniel Murphy doubled before scoring on a double by Bryce Harper, his 19th RBI in the last 19 games. Ramos brought Harper home with an RBI single to put the Nats ahead 2-0.He can smell it, Baker said. When he gets some runs, its usually a shutdown inning. He doesnt give it right back. It usually takes a while for them to score off of Max.Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff (9-13), who walked just six batters in his last eight starts coming in, issued three walks and allowed five hits and three earned runs through six innings.Scherzers double-digit strikeout game was the 12th of the season, setting a Nationals record. He improved his career record to 7-1 against the Phillies, including a 6-0 mark since he joined the Nats in 2015.HOWARDS STILL GOT POPHowards homer was the 20th of the season and the 377th of his career, tying him with Jeff Kent and Norm Cash for 73rd on MLBs all-time list. His next home run will tie him with Matt Williams for 72nd place.He has 10 career 20-homer seasons, the second most in Phillies history behind only Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt (14).HOME-PLATE COLLISIONThe fourth inning ended when Espinosa was thrown out at the plate on a dart from Phillies right fielder Aaron Altherr. On the play, Espinosa collided with Rupp at home, which seemed to anger some Phillies.Afterwards, Mackanin admitted that he didnt think he had to bowl him over, but Howard laughed that Rupp probably liked it and thats baseball.OWNING PHILLYThe Nationals, who opened their six-game road trip with a 4-0 victory over the Phillies on Monday, are 7-1 at Citizens Bank Park this season.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: Peter Bourjos missed his second straight game after getting hit in the left wrist by a pitch Sunday.UP NEXTThe Phillies and Nationals wrap up their three-game series Wednesday night with Philadelphia LHP Adam Morgan (1-8, 6.50) opposing LHP Gio Gonzalez (9-9, 4.25).

They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. TORONTO -- Blood was still dripping from just above the left eye of Toronto goaltender Frederik Andersen moments after the Maple Leafs 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.Andersen stopped 29 of 31 shots, bouncing back from the worst start of his NHL career two nights earlier, a seven-goal shelling at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning.The 27-year-old looked calm and composed in the crease versus Florida, coming up big in perhaps the Leafs worst defensive showing of the young season.He was our best player by far, coach Mike Babcock said on a night that saw rookie Mitch Marner finish with three impressive assists.Andersen said he was just trying to be patient and let the play come to him. Over-aggression was evident in earlier outings, particularly the shellacking against Tampa on Tuesday.Thats probably the biggest challenge as a goalie is just to try to relax and be calm, the native of Denmark explained. You want to be good and help your team win, but you cant decide when you get to make a save so youve just got to be patient.Andersen, who gave up four goals or more in four of his first five starts, tried to have a little bit more fun around the rink, too, going out of his way to share an extra laugh or two with teammates ahead of the game.Andersen often looked like he was being weighed down by the pressures of Toronto, a vastly more intense market from Anaheim, not to mention the rich five-year contract he signed after a trade from the Ducks and his new position as an undisputed No. 1 starter.Everybody is a proud person and wants to do really well and sometimes when it doesnt go well you put undue pressure on yourself instead of just enjoying it, Babcock said. I keep telling the guys, in this market, maybe more so than any market, you have to have something away from hockey that you love to do so you dont focus on hockey. If you focus on hockey all the time it just wears you out and you come to the rink with no energy.Led by its vaunted top line of Aleksander Barkov, Jonathan Marchessault and Jaromir Jagr, Florida buzzed often throughout the night, capitalizing on turnovers and sloppy defensive zone play. Babcock thought his team gave up more scoring chances than it had in any of the previous six games.Andersen, however, came up with one big save after another.Though he surrendered the games opening goal to Marchessault, on which he had no chance, Anderseen then turned aside Greg McKegg on a breakaway as well as Colton Sceviour later in the period, the Florida winger outmaneuvering Jake Gardiner for a quality chance in the slot. White Air Max 2018 On Sale. Andersen did allow a weak second goal to Marchessault, the shot beating him high on a second period Florida power play, but he quickly recovered with a series of stops on another Panthers man advantage, going right to left to get one particularly suave stop on Sceviour.The Leafs tied the game 2-2 about a minute after that save on a goal from James van Riemsdyk and then went ahead for good six minutes later on the second of two on the evening from Tyler Bozak.All three Toronto goals were set up by Marner, the 19-year-old who enjoyed his first ever multi-point game in the NHL. Marners passes were of the wow variety, particularly a no-look pass to Bozak on that third Leaf goal.If youre Bozak or van Riemsdyk, you know youre getting two or three real good looks a game out of the kid, Babcock said before the game.Babcock has raved about Marners skill and competitiveness often thus far, though he was less pleased with his performance in Tuesdays loss to Tampa Bay than the five that came before that.They all expect my 100 percent every game and even I do myself, Marner said. I just wanted to make sure I came into this game ready to play and knew when I had the chances just make sure they go into the net.Andersen came up bloody with less than eight minutes remaining, the blade of Sceviours stick finding a hole in the goaltenders mask and cutting him just above the left eye.The cut was a small price to pay for a much-needed win.Any time you can walk out of the rink with a win its a good day, Andersen said. Good way to bounce back from last game.Roberto Luongo made 25 saves for the Panthers.Game notes Jagr, who set up Floridas first goal, moved into sole possession of seventh on the all-times game played list (1,636), passing Hall of Fame defenseman Scott Stevens. The 44-year-old is three games from tying Dave Anderchuk for sixth place. ... Seth Griffith made his Maple Leafs debut, totaling just under nine minutes of ice time.UP NEXTPanthers: At Buffalo on Saturday in the third game of a four-game trip.Maple Leafs: At Montreal on Saturday in the front end of a back-to-back.
