Nationals' Scherzer has no-hitter through 6 against Reds

WASHINGTON (AP) Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals has not allowed a hit through six innings against the Cincinnati Reds.

Washington leads 3-0 in its home finale, a game originally scheduled for July 8 but postponed because of rain.

Scherzer has faced 20 batters, two over the minimum, and struck out eight. He walked two, Cincinnati's only baserunners.

Only one batter came close to a hit, Skip Schumaker - and he did so twice. In the third inning, left fielder Tyler Moore laid out for a highlight-reel diving catch, and in the sixth, second baseman Dan Uggla dropped to a knee to grab a liner.

Exactly a year ago to the day, on Sept. 28, 2014, Washington's Jordan Zimmermann no-hit the Miami Marlins on the last day of the regular season, getting the last out on a spectacular catch by left fielder Steven Souza Jr., who is no longer with the Nationals.
