Rough Return: NATS Loss and CF Eaton Leg Injury
NATS fans are hoping for the best after Adam Eaton was helped off the field Friday night in the middle of a 5-7 loss to the Mets. Eaton in 2017 so far: 91 AB, .297 BA, 2 HR, 13 RBI, .854 OPS. Eaton will be undergoing an MRI on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Ryan Zimmerman (.392) continued his strong 2017 with 2 HRs (2nd and 8th innings) and 3 RBI; Matt Wieters (.279) had a HR in the 2nd. Bryce Harper (.405) had kind of an off night for him going 1-for-5 with 3 strikeouts (Werth had 3 as well).
SP Max Scherzer (ERA 2.94, 3-2) went 6 innings, giving up 5 earned runs, 1 walk and 2 HRs (both to Travis d’artaud), but had 7 strikeouts. Scherzer has had an issue with home runs previously so this is something to watch. Oliver Perez (4.50) came in for the 7th (no runs), Jacob Turner (5.14) the 8th (2 runs), and Enny Romero (5.40) pitched a scoreless ninth.
