Scherzer pitches gem: Nats open road trip with win at Miami
The win was the fifth in a row for Scherzer (7-5, 2.52 ERA), who has a 0.92 ERA in his last seven starts, dating back to May 22.
Scherzer also had two hits and scored two runs, on a two-run single by Soto in a three-run Nats third, and then coming around on a three-run homer by Turner, his sixth of the season and the 50th in his career.
Scherzer only needed 94 pitches, giving up five hits and a hit batter.
Reliever Fernando Rodney, called up earlier in the day, put up a scoreless ninth in his first game as a Nat.
