Nationals hit 8 HRs to blast Brewers 15-2

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

The Washington Nationals tied a franchise record with eight home runs, including two apiece by Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman, and Max Scherzer pitched six innings of three-hit ball in a 15-2 rout of the fading Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.
   Washington matched two major league records in a seven-run third inning: Most consecutive home runs (four) and most home runs in an inning (five).
   After Harper connected off Michael Blazek (0-1) in the first inning, Brian Goodwin started the long-ball barrage in the third with a two-run drive. Wilmer Difo, Harper and Zimmerman followed with long home runs.
   The streak was interrupted when Daniel Murphy flied out, after which some of the fans reacted with good-natured booing.
   Anthony Rendon resumed the fun with a shot to dead center that finally chased Blazek, whose first major league start was memorable for all the wrong reasons.
