Blake Treinen needed just one pitch to induce Nolan Arenado into an inning-ending double play in the seventh, and Shawn Kelley struck out two in a hitless eighth.I just didnt pitch efficiently, Scherzer said. I just didnt do a lot of things right tonight. I just couldnt get in a groove.Im just glad I got picked up by the bullpen and the offense.Daniel Murphy hit an RBI single in the fifth, Ramos connected for a tying home run in the sixth and Harper hit his second double of the night in the seventh to give Washington a 5-4 lead.Harper played for the second straight day after missing five games with a neck injury.WITH HONORSBlackmon also led the majors with a .563 batting average and 42 total bases last week.
