WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Nationals outlasted the weather and the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night — and early Sunday.Bryce Harper hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning and the Nationals rallied past the Cubs 6-5 to sweep a doubleheader delayed more than 3½ hours by rain.Max Scherzer pitched a complete game and Washington took advantage of the sloppy Cubs for a 10-3 victory in the opener. By the end of a long night , Chicago’s lead in the NL Central was down to 2½ games over Milwaukee.Anthony Rendon’s double off Steve Cishek scored Trea Turner to pull Washington to 5-4 in the seventh inning of the nightcap. Left-hander Justin Wilson (4-4) came on to face Harper, who drove a 1-1 pitch to straightaway center field for his 32nd home run. Harper also walked three times.“Patience, really,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said when asked what it took to get through the very long day and night.“It was nasty. It’s nasty for both teams. We’re pretty much at the mercy of the league and the rain, really. I’m proud of the guys just sticking in there and finishing the job.”Rendon had a solo homer and Adrian Sanchez added two hits and two RBIs for Washington.Wander Suero (2-0) got two outs for the win. Following an 89-minute rain delay in the middle of the eighth, Greg Holland worked the ninth to earn his second save in a game that ended at 1:44 a.m. on Sunday.Victor Caratini hit his first career grand slam off Nationals starter Jefry Rodriguez to give Chicago a 4-0 lead in the fourth.Washington pulled to 4-3 in the sixth on Rendon’s homer and an RBI double by Sanchez.Cubs starter Cole Hamels left with the lead after allowing three runs in 5 2/3 innings.“We got on top, we had a nice lead, Cole was pitching well and all of sudden they just rallied from behind,” manager Joe Maddon said. “We had the right pitchers lined up, they were rested Yasmani Grandal Jersey , and (the Nationals) got us. They absolutely got us.”Bidding for a third straight NL Cy Young Award, Scherzer (17-6) gave up nine hits and struck out 11 without a walk. He also had an RBI single, raising his batting average to .270 this season.It was one of just six hits for Washington, which capitalized on nine walks and three errors by the Cubs. The Nationals scored five runs in the sixth on just two hits thanks to two errors and a wild pitch that resulted in a run.Martinez visited Scherzer on the mound after the Cubs scored twice in the ninth, but left his ace in to get the final two outs.“He asked me what I wanted to do. I said I wanted to finish it,” Scherzer said, noting the 66-degree game-time temperature had him feeling good. “We’ve been playing some hot games and for the weather to cool off, you just felt like you had unlimited energy and for me, I still had plenty in the tank.”Scherzer retired 15 in a row during one stretch. He lost his shutout in the seventh.It was Scherzer’s second complete game of the season and 10th of his career.After Friday night’s game was rained out following more than four hours of delays, the start of Saturday’s first game was held up by showers for 2 hours , 10 minutes.Maddon went with a bullpen game, and the Nationals jumped in front early. Jaime Garcia (3-7), making his Cubs debut, walked the bases loaded with one out in the first inning and Juan Soto sent a hard grounder past first baseman Anthony Rizzo that was ruled a two-run single. That was all for Garcia, and Washington’s Matt Wieters provided a third run with an RBI single.A LA CARTSean Doolittle of Washington became the first reliever to use the Nationals Park bullpen cart, which debuted Aug. 17. “I had a lot of fun,” Doolittle said. “It was a really smooth ride.”WERTH HONOREDThe Nationals held a ceremony on the field between games placing outfielder Jayson Werth in their Ring of Honor. Signed to a $126 million, seven-year contract as a free agent after the 2010 season, Werth hit .263 with 109 homers and 393 RBIs and served as a team leader. The Nationals, who had not made the postseason prior to his arrival Clayton Kershaw Jersey , won four NL East titles during his time with them. Werth threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the second game, with his son catching.TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: RF Ben Zobrist returned for the opener after being out of Friday’s lineup due to neck stiffness.UP NEXTCubs LHP Mike Montgomery (4-5, 3.76 ERA) opposes Nationals RHP Erick Fedde (1-3, 6.00) in Sunday’s series finale. Paul Bereswill/Getty ImagesOutfielder Aaron Judge is in the New York Yankees' starting lineup on Tuesday for the first time since July 26.Judge will play in right and hit second against the Boston Red Sox:New York Yankees YankeesThe Judge is in.Powered by Biofreeze etDMKFWVa4He was activated from the disabled list on Friday but was limited to being a defensive replacement. When he steps to the plate on Tuesday, it will mark his first big-league at-bat in more than seven weeks.Judge managed to stay in good health as a rookie, appearing in 155 games last year. However, he sustained achip fractureof theulnar styloid bone in hisright wrist after being hit by a pitch in late July. While he was able to avoid surgery, he missed more than a month while recovering.The 6'7", 282-pound slugger is hitting .285/.398/.547with 26 home runs, 20doubles and 61 RBI in 100games this season.Fortunately for New York , depth throughout the lineup helped the team continue to pile up wins in Judge's absence. It also includes reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton, Didi Gregorius, Gleyber Torres and Brett Gardner, among others.Not only that, but the Bronx Bombers went out and acquired former NL MVP Andrew McCutchen last month to provide a boost to the outfield while Judge was sidelined.No matter how much depth a lineup has, though, losing a prolific bat like Judge was a big blow. After all, he finished as the runner-up in the American League MVP voting last season after mashing an AL-leading 52 home runs and knocking in 114 runs. That type of production can't typically be replaced by inserting a bench player into the lineup or calling up someone from the minors.If New York is going to win World Series No. 28, having a healthy and productive Judge would go a long way in helping the cause. That means using the next two weeks to get him back into a rhythm is key.
