Scherzer … impressive 17 strikeouts

Left fielder Adam Eaton rocketed 2 homeruns and scored 4 times and Max
Scherzer pitched a 3 hitter at Camden Yards where the Washington Nationals
beat the Baltimore Orioles 9 to 1.

Eaton enjoyed a big day at the plate. He ripped a solo home run in the 3rd
inning, blasted a solo shot in the 5th inning, lined a one-base hit in the
7th inning and ripped a base-knock in the 9th inning. Offensively,
Washington was a juggernaut. They scored in 6 separate innings.

The win was credited to Scherzer(1-0) who went the whole way allowing 1 run.
Jeremy Hellickson(0-1) was hit with the loss. He served up 4 gopher balls in
6 innings.

Buck Showalter lamented, ‘Scherzer was really aggressive today. He kept
coming after our hitters. Heck, why not. he kept sitting our guys down one
after another – like so many bowling pins!’
