Murphy, Scherzer slam Mets as Nats win 7th straight, 6-3

As usual, Daniel Murphy was diplomatic about all the damage he's done to the New York Mets since they let him leave as a free agent.

Max Scherzer knows that's just a mirage.

"He wants to beat their brains in. He won't say anything, and he won't say anything to us — it's not like he's in here boasting that he wants to beat the Mets," Scherzer said. "But he wants to beat them apart. That's the way this is. That's just the way this goes."

Murphy hit an early grand slam against his former team, Scherzer pitched eight fiery innings and the Washington Nationals topped New York 6-3 on Sunday night for their seventh straight victory .
