Nationals-Marlins Preview

(AP) -- Max Scherzer was hardly at his best the last time out, or against the Miami Marlins earlier this season.

He'll try to improve on both performances for the Washington Nationals in Thursday's decisive finale at Marlins Park.

For the third time this season and second in his last four starts, Scherzer (10-8, 2.33 ERA) allowed a season-high five runs Friday before leaving without a decision in a 7-5 loss at Pittsburgh - the same club he no-hit June 20. All the damage off Scherzer came via a season-high three homers while he lasted fewer than seven innings for the third time in those four starts after doing so on three occasions in his first 16.
