PHOENIX -- Double-digit strikeouts in a game is nothing new for Max Scherzer. Hitting a two-run single is much more rare.Scherzer was strong on the mound with 11 strikeouts in eight innings, but his sixth-inning base hit with two outs and the bases loaded helped lead the Washington Nationals to a 8-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.Scherzer (12-6) and his manager, Dusty Baker, said the Nationals work on their hitting almost daily.I really take pride in being able to move runners and help the team, Scherzer said. Any time you can do something at the plate to help your team, it really puts a smile on everybodys face.Washington earned its fourth road series sweep of the season and first since May 30-June 1 at Philadelphia. Arizona lost its fourth straight and sixth in seven games, and fell to 0-9 in Wednesday games at home this season.Scherzer allowed three runs on four hits, giving up two homers, and walked one. He is 3-0 in four starts against his former team, which drafted the four-time All-Star and former Cy Young Award winner No. 11 overall in 2006.He gave us quality. He only made two mistakes, Baker said.Daniel Murphys sixth-inning solo home run broke a 1-1 tie before Scherzer bounced a single up the middle with the bases loaded and two outs, driving in Anthony Rendon and Danny Espinosa. Scherzer battled back from an 0-2 count.I didnt make a pitch. I threw a cutter that just ran in like a fastball and he put a good swing on it and got it back up the middle and got a hit, Diamondbacks starter Zack Godley said of Scherzers single. Tip your hat to him. He put a good at-bat together, I just didnt make my pitch.Murphy, the NLs leading hitter with a .358 average, has hit safely in 17 of 19 games and has seven home runs in that span, 20 on the season.Fortunately we were able to get some good pitches to hit that third time through the lineup and put some good swings on him (Godley), Murphy said.Scherzer held the Diamondbacks hitless for four innings, but David Peralta led off the bottom of the fifth with a double to left field. Peralta advanced to third on a wild pitch, and with one out, scored when Bryce Harper dropped a sliding catch of Brandon Drurys shallow fly ball to right.That tied the game at 1, after Trea Turners second career home run and first of 2016 came with one out in the top of the third.The Nationals went ahead 4-1 in the sixth before Jake Lambs solo shot in the bottom of the inning. It was Lambs second homer in as many days.Yasmany Tomas cut the Nationals lead to one with a home run in the seventh, the first time in his career hes gone deep in back-to-back games.The Nationals scored four runs in the ninth off Arizonas troubled bullpen, on Espinosas RBI ground-rule double, a walk and Clint Robinsons two-run pinch-hit single.Godley (3-2) allowed four runs and eight hits with seven strikeouts and a walk in six innings.I was happy with our offensive performance against him (Scherzer), Arizona manager Chip Hale said. Hes one of the better guys in the league and one of the best competitors. The game was very well played for the eight innings, and then we just couldnt hold them in the top of the ninth.TRAINERS ROOMNationals: Harper returned to the lineup after missing Tuesdays game because of illness. ...

SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Jordan 12 Cheap Real . Speaking to the Chicago Tribune at baseballs Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Boras called the former home of the Expos a "tremendous environment" for baseball. The good news: Representatives for unified middleweight world titleholder Gennady Golovkin and secondary titlist Daniel Jacobs, the mandatory challenger, remain locked in talks in the hopes of making the biggest fight in the weight class this side of a Golovkin showdown against Canelo Alvarez.The bad news: Golovkin-Jacobs will not take place this year. Instead, neither will fight again in 2016, and their fight will be pushed into the early part of 2017, assuming it is eventually finalized.The sides were in discussions for the fight to take place on Dec. 10. HBO, which has Golovkin under contract, committed to the date and Madison Square Garden in New York was on hold.But the sides have not been able to reach an agreement, and they dont want to go to a purse bid. So Golovkin promoter Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions told ESPN on Tuesday that they have thrown in the towel on the fight taking place on Dec. 10.Loeffler said he is still talking with Al Haymon, Jacobs adviser, about making the fight, but they lost a lot of time when talks were put on hold while the WBA took its time to rule on what the split of a purse bid should be. The Jacobs camp requested that the WBA reconsider its standard 75-25 split in favor of the super titleholder, Golovkin in this case. Jacobs wanted the split set at 60-40. Ultimately, the WBA ruled it would remain 75-25.Once the WBA made their ruling to uphold their standard split, it became just a matter of still talking to Al and trying to finalize a deal, but its just too late now for the fight to be on Dec. 10, Loeffler said. We had Madison Square Garden on hold, and theyve been a good partner to us, so I dont like having to leave them with an open Saturday night. HBO also was ready to go, but we are going to push it back into early 2017.Loeffler said he could not predict the specific time frame because it will depend on HBOs schedule, Madison Square Gardens availabilitty and how long it takes to make a deal.ddddddddddddAs soon as we can get the deal agreed to well figure out a date and location, he said. But first we have to make the fight. Optimally, it will stay at Madison Square Garden. Our goal is to not go to a purse bid because a promotion is more effective when both sides are happy with the deal.In a purse bid, the promoter who offers the most money wins promotional rights to the fight, with the winning offer being split between the fighters -- 75-25 in Golovkins favor for this fight.By the time contracts are signed and fighters are in training camp, it just wasnt realistic to keep the December date, unfortunately, Loeffler said. If we had the contracts signed today, OK, maybe we could do it. But were not there yet. The contract isnt signed and theres no telling when it would be signed.Loeffler said Golovkin, 34, the Santa Monica, California-based Kazakhstan native, is disappointed about not fighting again this year because he prides himself on being one of boxings busiest star fighters. This will be the first time Golovkin has not boxed three times in a calendar year since 2012, when he first came to the United States to fight and linked up with HBO.Its not by our choice, Loeffler said.One of boxings most devastating punchers, Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs), who has made 17 title defenses and knocked out 23 consecutive opponents, is coming off a fifth-round stoppage of Kell Brook in London on Sept. 10.Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs), also a powerful puncher, has made four defenses of his so-called regular title, including a one-sided seventh-round knockout of former junior middleweight titlist Sergio Mora in their rematch on Sept. 9 in Reading, Pennsylvania. Jacobs, 29, of Brooklyn, New York, will wind up having fought only once in 2016.
