The game that ended twice (read on). Max Scherzer pitched 7 innings, 115 pitches (75 strikes), giving up no runs on 2 hits and 3 walks (game score 79). Blake Treinen loaded the bases and walked in a Braves run. Shawn Kelley relieved Treinen and finished off the Nats 3-1 win…but not until after a bizarre ending to the game which ended (players walking off the field), but then didn’t (thanks to a very late foul-tip call by the home plate umpire).  So everyone reconvened for a final Kelley third strike pitch. Ryan Zimmerman went 2-for-3 with an RBI double (the two other RBI came from Wilmer Difo and Adam Eaton).  Bryce Harper had a 2 double night. Two NATS – Harper and Eaton – were caught stealing.
