Nationals take out the Diamondbacks in four games

Washingon will move on and take on the Cubbies after defeating the Diamondbacks three games to one in the best of five.

Max Scherzer reeled off a total of 12 strikeouts and second baseman Daniel
Murphy ripped 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI as the Washington Nationals bested the
Arizona Diamondbacks 5 to 0 at Chase Field.

Murphy enjoyed a fine evening at the plate. He smashed a two-run homer in the
6th inning and delivered a solo blast in the 8th inning. Washington totaled
7 hits on the night.

Scherzer(2-0) was credited with the shutout, his first of the year. Zack
Greinke(1-1) was the losing pitcher. He allowed 3 homeruns in 8 innings of
work.

‘I had my good stuff tonight.’ Scherzer said. ‘As the game went along I
started to get the feeling that I was going to strike out a bunch of
hitters.’
