Revamped lineup thriving as Diamondbacks host Nationals

(TSX / STATS) -- PHOENIX -- Defending National League Cy Young winner Max Scherzer took a punch to the face Friday. It did not sit well.

And while Scherzer escaped with a no-decision after giving up home runs to the first three Arizona Diamondbacks batters he faced Friday, he was not pleased that he did not give his Washington Nationals a fighting chance while going five innings in the first of a three-game series matching potential playoff teams.

"This is a great start to learn from," Scherzer said. "They beat me. Sometimes in this game, you get punched in the face. You have to learn from it. There are things I did today you can tell they are keying on. My stuff is still there. There is nothing broken here. I just have to fix some stuff that I am doing, sequencing-wise.
