Nationals’ Kurt Suzuki will catch in Game 2

David Freese, former World Series MVP, retires at 36

Sanchez started Game 3 of that series on Sunday, giving up one run on four hits and two walks, recording nine strikeouts over five innings with no decision.

The team announced that closer Daniel Hudson is on paternity leave after his wife gave birth to their third child on Friday. "I mean, I get it, I understand". "It's one game, we'll figure it out".

"He's going to try to get back here possibly tomorrow", Martinez said. "But his defense, as we all know, we don't miss much on defense with him out there". Freese had started Game 1 at first base.

After Goldschmidt's hit, Ozuna struck out again and Molina bounced into an inning-ending double play on Scherzer's final pitch of the afternoon. The Nationals later added two more runs in the top of the eighth to take a 3-0 lead.

Washington's Max Scherzer became the second pitcher to flirt with a no-hitter in as many days as the Nationals stunned Adam Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 in game two of the National League Championship Series.

Scherzer, who has pitched two no-hitters in the regular season, has a record five career post-season no-hit bids of at least five innings, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Scherzer walked Kolten Wong in the first and Dexter Fowler in the sixth for St. Louis' only baserunners before Goldschmidt. Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki and center fielder Victor Robles were active after both got injured against the Dodgers, but they were out of the starting lineup for Game 1 against the Cardinals.

He made his major league debut with the Cardinals in 2009 and became a postseason star two years later. "It's really just a collective of everybody out there doing their job".
