Mets manager Terry Collins on what Daniel Murphy has done against his former team: "He's doing damage against everybody!"

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Two Daniel Murphy bombs and another Max Scherzer gem helped the Nats to a 4-2 victory and a sweep of the Mets – you know, the team that was supposed to be Washington's foil but instead is falling apart faster than a homemade burrito. With a 5.5-game division lead and seven straight home dates with the Reds and Brewers (followed by four more against these same Mets), a double-digit cushion by the All-Star break doesn't seem out of the question.

I love watching Brian Dozier play. Now up to 10 straight games with an extra-base hit. Last AL player to do that: Not Mike Trout or Miguel Cabrera. Not even A-Rod. It's Johnny Damon in 2009.

Another dominant outing for Danny Salazar, as the Indians are three outs away from their 12th win in a row. Salazar tossed seven scoreless frames to lower his ERA to 2.22 as opponents are hitting just .185 against him. I'd go with Chris Sale as the AL All-Star starter, but Salazar should be a lock to make the team.

By striking out Yoenis Céspedes to start the 7th inning, Max Scherzer registered his seventh 10+ strikeout-game of the season and 43rd of his career. Scherzer has struck out at least 10 batters in 5 of his last 6 starts.

No movement on the tarp at the CWS. Very light rain, but showers remain in the area. More notably, the wind has picked up and is blowing out to center and left field.

Max Scherzer, who's dominating the Mets tonight (6 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K) has increased his strikeout total every year since 2011: 174, 231, 240, 252, 276. He's now at 147 on the season and is threatening to become just the second pitcher since 2002 to have a 300-K campaign.
