With the help of two home runs from Bryce Harper, the Washington Nationals dominated the Philadelphia Phillies, 7-3, on Friday night. He walked pinch hitter Pedro Severino with the bases loaded to tie it and Wilmer Difo followed with a winning single.

NEW YORK - Ian Desmond hit a pair of solo homers, including a tiebreaking drive in the eighth inning that sent the Colorado Rockies over the sagging New York Mets 3-2 Sunday for their season-high fifth straight win.

Scherzer and Phillies starter Jake Arrieta, who have combined to win the last three NL Cy Young Awards, kept things close into the late innings before both bullpens faltered.

Difo's heroics nearly overshadowed starting pitcher Max Scherzer, who struck out a season-high 15 batters while giving up one run on five hits in 61/3 innings.

Philadelphia closer Hector Neris (1-2) took a 4-3 lead into the ninth but didn't get an out.

The Phillies added a run in the sixth inning when Santana tripled and scored on Maikel Franco's single to make it 3-1.

Sean Doolittle (1-1) pitched the ninth. Arrieta comes off of an 8-4 loss at Miami with six runs given up on eight hits over 3.2 innings. But one of them was really outrageous.

Scherzer's effort came on the 20th anniversary of Kerry Wood's 20-strikeout performance against the Houston Astros.

"Difo had a huge hit at the end there", said Dave Martinez, the Nationals manager. With a runner on first in the third inning, Harper crushed a changeup 473 feet to dead center.

Scherzer's start has the threat of being cut short by a delay, at least according to threat of thunderstorms showing up mid-afternoon according to the Weather Channel. He won the 2015 NL Cy Young with the Cubs.

Current Nationals have just under 140 career plate appearances against Arrieta. and no home runs.

Arrieta on being lifted for a pinch hitter after throwing 75 pitches in six innings: "Max is punching out 29 and we have to try to find a way to score".

Wee Willie Keeler was a left-handed hitting outfielder who played in the majors more than 100 years ago.

Pivetta issued back-to-back walks to Turner and Matt Adams, and after RBI singles by Ryan Zimmerman and Matt Wieters, the Nationals had a 3-0 lead. Scherzer made three starts against the Phillies in 2017, compiling a spotless 2-0 record with a 4.34 ERA and 22 strikeouts. It was the most strikeouts any pitcher had in 6.1 innings or less in one start.

The Nationals won two of three in the series, after losing 3-1 on Saturday to the Phillies.
