Harper, Scherzer power Nationals past Cubs

CHICAGO (AP) Bryce Harper hit his 18th home run, Max Scherzer struck out a season-high 13 to outduel Jon Lester and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago Cubs 3-0 on Wednesday night.

The top two free-agent pitchers on the market last offseason, Scherzer (6-3) and Lester faced off in a memorable matchup in the finale of the three-game series. Scherzer, who signed a seven-year deal worth $210 million with Washington, was better than his counterpart, throwing seven scoreless innings while allowing five hits and one walk to win his fifth straight start.

Scherzer and three relievers combined to shut out the Cubs and take two of three from Chicago. Drew Storen pitched a scoreless ninth for his 16th save in 17 attempts.
