T1 — Don't tell Scherzer that this is an exhibition. Nats ace showing out in front of home fans. Throwing absolute heat. FOX's microphones picking up his audible tennis-like grunting with each flamethrower. He strikes out Betts & Altuve to start game. Walks Trout on full count & gives up single up middle to Martinez. Men on 1B & 3B with 2 outs.

T1 || AL 0, NL 0

M2 — Solo jack from Judge brings in game's 1st run. Scherzer makes quick work on Machado (flyout) & Abreu (K on 3 straight pitches) after then. Then, he strikes Perez out swinging in 7-pitch AB to end inning.

Interesting to see the starting position players still playing this deep into the game, especially considering that the game no longer decides home-field advantage in the World Series.

T8 — Just like the Cubs-Reds series finale a few Sundays ago, Votto makes a mistake that leads to a big hit. Votto drops foul ball, which leads to Segura (who was winner of final fan vote in AL) hitting 3-R HR.
