WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington ace Max Scherzer left after just 12 pitches with a groin injury, Buster Posey homered and the San Francisco Giants beat the Nationals 1-0 night on Anthony DeSclafani’s career-best two-hitter.

Giants left fielder Michael Tauchman made a leaping catch to rob a home run for the second time in less than a month. 

A crowd of 18,029 attended the first game at Nationals Park without capacity limits since the 2019 World Series. 

Scherzer is 5-4 with a 2.21 ERA and began the night second in the NL with 104 strikeouts.
