Nats ace Scherzer loose, healthy following 1st spring start

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Max Scherzer joked about the home run he surrendered - a sure sign that while baseball is back on the diamond, it's still early in spring training.

Dansby Swanson sent a fastball from Scherzer over the left field wall, keeping it inside the foul pole for the lone blemish against the Washington ace in a 9-3 win over Atlanta on Sunday.

In the clubhouse not long afterward, teammate Shawn Kelley pointed his phone at the ultra-competitive Scherzer, mimicking reporters with their voice recorders. Kelley playfully barbed his teammate, asking what went wrong on the homer.
