⚾️Nationals: Pitcher Max Scherzer threw seven strikeouts (and didn’t throw a fit) in six innings to help the Nats beat the Miami Marlins 5–1 yesterday, splitting the four-game series in the process. For once, it wasn’t home run king Kyle Schwarber with the big blast: shortstop Trea Turner and first baseman Josh Bell each hit a two-run homer to earn that curly W.

  • They face the NY Mets for a makeup game at 7:05 p.m. ET tonight before playing two games against the Tampa Bay Rays starting tomorrow. Buckle up.

⚽️Spirit: Sometimes, procrastinating works out. The Spirit pulled off a 2–1 win over KC NWSL on Saturday, with rookie sensation Trinity Rodman slotting home the game-winner in extra time. Don’t call it a comeback.

🏀Mystics: Outgunned, outmanned, outnumbered, outplanned. The injuries are catching up to the Mystics, who dropped their second consecutive game on Saturday. Oof.

And tomorrow’s 7 p.m. ET matchup against the Connecticut Sun could feature a clash of two MVP candidates — our Tina Charles and the Sun’s Jonquel Jones, who is expected to play after her incredible EuroBasket tournament. Let’s not make it three straight.
