Video: Josh Harrison recovers to make a sweet grab


This wasn’t really a great catch by Josh Harrison because he bungled the route, but it did look cool

And you’ve gotta love Andrew McCutchen laughing at his teammate afterward. This is only Harrison’s second start in right field this season. Jung Ho Kang is at third base for the Pirates on Tuesday night.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
