McGee got the

Max Scherzer isn’t going to begin a debate over who should start the All-Star Game for the National League.

He’s content to let others sort that out while he keeps winning.

Scherzer made a final pitch to start the Midsummer Classic on his own mound Lane Taylor Jersey , Anthony Rendon hit two homers and Bryce Harper also connected, leading the Washington Nationals over the New York Mets 5-4 Thursday night.

Scherzer (12-5) didn’t dominate over his seven innings, but managed to tie Philadelphia’s Aaron Nola for the NL lead in wins. He struck out five, boosting his league-leading total to 182.

His first half assessment?

”Pretty good,” he said. ”I’ve been pretty consistent, giving the team a chance to win.”

The three-time Cy Young Award winner exited with a 2.41 ERA, and perfectly lined up to pitch on regular rest next Tuesday night in the All-Star Game at Nationals Park.

Scherzer deflected a question on whether he should get the start, saying it was ”an All-Star question” that he’d talk about at the right time. Before the game, Nationals manager Dave Martinez was more definitive.

”I don’t want to be biased,” he said, ”but Max Scherzer, yeah Anthony Averett Jersey , of course.”

Fans at Citi Field would rather see Mets ace Jacob deGrom make the start – he tops the majors with a 1.68 ERA, but is just 5-4 in 19 starts because of poor run support.

”I know how good he is,” Scherzer said. ”He’s having a great year.”

Washington won for just the sixth time in 17 games and nudged back over .500 at 47-46. The Mets fell to 37-54, their most losses before the All-Star Game since dropping 60 in 1993.

Scherzer gave up three runs and five hits, including home runs by nemesis Jose Bautista and Kevin Plawecki.

Rendon hit a two-run homer off Steven Matz (4-7) in the first and added a solo drive in the third. His fourth career multihomer performance gave him six homers in 13 games.

Matz was pulled after striking out Juan Soto to start the seventh, and left with a 3.38 ERA.

”He’s just maturing as an overall major league pitcher. And his stuff has gotten better,” manager Mickey Callaway said. ”He’s been fantastic for us.”

Rendon singled in the seventh off Tim Peterson and then Harper, already assured a starting spot in the All-Star outfield, greeted lefty Jerry Blevins with his 23rd homer to make it 5-2.

Bautista hit an RBI single in the first and a solo homer in the fourth. He is 11 for 23 lifetime against Scherzer with two home runs and four doubles.

Plawecki homered in the seventh off the Washington ace. Kelvin Herrera relieved to begin the eighth and gave up a solo homer to Asdrubal Cabrera.

Ryan Madson closed for his fourth save.

MORE MAX

Scherzer beat out an infield single for his 11th hit, tied with Colorado’s German Marquez for most among pitchers this year. Scherzer also put down his first sacrifice bunt of the season and lined out.

”Max is Max. He wants to be the best at everything. Pitching, hitting, bunting Ronnie Lott Jersey ,” Martinez said. ”He tells me he can play the outfield if need be.”

MORE STATS

Cabrera’s 17th homer marked the most by a Mets second baseman before the All-Star break. … Matz had held opponents hitless in their last 26 at-bats with runners on base until Soto singled with one out in the first and Rendon followed with a home run.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Nationals: RHP Stephen Strasburg, out for nearly a month because of shoulder inflammation, threw a bullpen that went well, Martinez said. Strasburg will make rehab start Sunday for Class A Potomac and is expected to throw 80-85 pitches. … 1B Ryan Zimmerman (oblique strain), sidelined since May 10, could rejoin the Nationals right after the All-Star break at home vs. Atlanta, Martinez said.

Mets: OF Yoenis Cespedes has been taking grounders at first base while rehabbing at the spring complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The oft-injured slugger hasn’t played in the majors since mid-May, and the Mets think a position shift might ease the toll on his legs. The team is seeing whether moving to first might be an option for next season.

UP NEXT

Nationals: RHP Tanner Roark (3-11, 4.76 ERA) is tied for the major league lead in losses. He got no-decisions in two starts vs. the Mets this season.

Mets: RHP Noah Syndergaard (4-1, 3.06) is expected to come off the disabled list for his first big league start since May 25. The 2016 All-Star has been sidelined by a strained ligament in his right index finger. Callaway is looking forward to lining up a healthy rotation led by ace Jacob deGrom, Syndergaard Jordan Mills Jersey , Matz and Zack Wheeler after the break, when the Mets open up at Yankee Stadium. ”Obviously, the first half was not a success and it was unacceptable,” Callaway said.




One of the earliest bricks in the wall between Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers came when Rodgers was drafted, and the older quarterback said:聽鈥淢y contract doesn鈥檛 say I have to get Aaron Rodgers ready to play. Now hopefully he watches me and gets something from that.鈥?/p>

But over time, that wall has come down, and Favre said that after talking to Rodgers, the current Packers quarterback understands him.

鈥淲e talked about that,鈥?Favre said during an interview on ESPN 540. 鈥淗e said, 鈥業 get it now. I get what you were saying, or how you carried yourself.鈥?. . .

鈥淭here is no clause that says, 鈥榊ou groom the next guy who鈥檚 going to take your job Brent Grimes Jersey , or else.鈥?It doesn鈥檛 work that way.鈥?/p>

(Somewhere in Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisberger nods silently.)

It took years for the old wounds created by Favre bristling at his replacement being drafted to heal. And after their famous photo op at the 2013 NFL Honors, the two have continued to work on their relationship, as Favre said he talked to Rodgers last week.

But even that took effort.

鈥淚 told Aaron, if I do anything, I鈥檓 going to get you a phone that works,” Favre said. “That guy may be the worst at returning messages.鈥?/p>

Of course, for a long time Favre was the one giving Rodgers the cold shoulder. So perhaps it’s a last bit of payback, between two men whose competitiveness put them among the best to ever play.
