Scherzer finds his form, Rendon homers as Nats beat D-Backs

WASHINGTON (AP) When Anthony Rendon hit a three-run home run to put the Washington Nationals ahead, Dusty Baker couldn't contain his excitement. The veteran manager was so excited about Max Scherzer being in line for his 19th win that he celebrated in the dugout with the Cy Young Award candidate.

Thanks to Rendon and his own in-game adjustments, Scherzer got that 19th win as the Nationals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 on Tuesday night. Scherzer gets the chance at win No. 20 in his final start Sunday, something Baker was thinking about all along.

"He really cared about it," Scherzer said of Baker. "You could just tell that he really wanted it. That just shows you how great our team is that when we're down two runs in the sixth inning we find a way."
