Harper, Scherzer carry Nationals to 2-1 win over Phillies

WASHINGTON (AP) Scoring two runs with Max Scherzer on the mound is all the offense the Washington Nationals need for wins these days. Having the pitcher race around the bases for the go-ahead score isn't usually part of the plan.

Bryce Harper hit another home run and Scherzer had another dominant outing to help the Washington Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 on Friday night for their sixth straight win.

Harper's homer, his 11th in 14 games, tied the score 1-1 in the second inning. Ian Desmond's RBI double drove in Scherzer from first base with the go-ahead run in the sixth. The NL East-leading Nationals are 18-4 since April 28.
