Bryce Harper blasted his 16th home run of the season on Friday, powering the Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Phillies.

Harper victimized Sean O'Sullivan for the solo blast in the second inning, the third time that he's taken the young right-hander deep this season. He is in a class of his own at the plate right now, slashing a ridiculous .336/.475/.750 to go along with his 16 bombs and 39 RBI. While it's only May, he's the clear early favorite for National League MVP honors it what is shaping up to be a breakout season for the 22-year-old.

Drew Storen worked a scoreless ninth inning on Friday, preserving a one-run advantage against the Phillies to earn his 13th save of the season.

He did allow a pair of hits which put the game, and Max Scherzer's win, in jeopardy, but was able to battle back with a fly ball and a strikeout to end the evening. He has done a terrific job in his transition back to the closer's role, compiling a 0.98 ERA and 23/3 K/BB ratio across 18 1/3 innings.
May 22 - 10:02 PM

Max Scherzer fired eight innings of one-run ball against the Phillies on Friday, picking up his fifth victory of the season.

The All-Star right-hander allowed just four hits and a walk while striking out six. He has been everything that the Nationals had hoped for when inking him to his massive free agent deal this winter, posting a 1.67 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 72/9 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep things rolling on Wednesday when he does battle against the Cubs in Chicago.
May 22 - 10:00 PM

Gerrit Cole struck out 10 batters and allowed just an unearned run over 8 1/3 innings in a 4-1 win over the Mets on Friday.

The only run scored on a wild pitch in the third inning. It was a dominant performance from Cole, who entered the ninth inning with a chance at his first career complete game. He was pulled with two on and one out, but Mark Melancon was able to finish off the victory. Cole scattered six hits and walked one in the victory and now owns a 2.05 ERA and 63/14 K/BB ratio in 57 innings through nine starts. He's looking like a potential Cy Young frontrunner.
May 22 - 9:59 PM

Noah Syndergaard took the loss Friday after giving up four runs (three earned) over six innings against the Pirates.

Syndergaard pitched better than it looked, as his defense didn't do him any favors. The Mets were charged with one error on the night, but it really should have been two. The young right-hander allowed seven hits while walking none and striking out five. He now owns a 3.63 ERA through his first three starts in the majors and will stick around with the Mets planning to go to a six-man rotation when Dillon Gee (groin) comes off the disabled list.
May 22 - 9:58 PM

Odubel Herrera went 1-for-3 and plated the Phillies lone run in Friday's loss to Max Scherzer and the Nationals.

His run-scoring double in the second inning plated Maikel Franco and gave the Phillies an early 1-0 lead, but that would be the extent of their offense on the evening. Herrera also drew a walk in the ballgame and is now slashing .263/.300/.375 with 14 RBI on the season.
May 22 - 9:58 PM

Mark Melancon got a two-out save Friday against the Mets.

Melancon was called on to protect a three-run lead after Gerrit Cole was pulled with two on and one out in the ninth. He retired both of the batters he faced to finish off the win. Melancon's velocity still isn't close to what it was last year, but he's 10-for-11 in save chances and owns a 3.15 ERA over his first 20 appearances.
May 22 - 9:57 PM

Jung Ho Kang had an RBI single and a stolen base against the Mets on Friday.

Kang has hit safely in five straight games and owns a .310/.372/.440 batting line with two home runs, 11 RBI, and three stolen bases through 29 games. He has pushed the struggling Jordy Mercer to the bench in recent days and deserves to be owned in more fantasy leagues right now.
