While the Washington Nationals’ season would be considered a disappointment to date, the team’s pitching ace — Max Scherzer — has been his usual steadfast self. Already the owner of three Cy Young Awards, Scherzer (15-5, 2.28) looks to be in line to capture his fourth after winning five of his last six starts and not allowing more than 2 earned runs since July 12. Tonight, Scherzer will try to pitch the Nats to a series win over the Cubs as he faces the newly-acquired Cole Hamels (7-9, 4.38) in the ESPN primetime matchup.
