Nats ace Scherzer breaks nose in batting practice  

Washington Nationals star Max Scherzer suffered a broken nose in an accident during batting practice.

Nationals pitcher Scherzer was struck in the face after a ball came off his own bat in a bunting drill prior to Tuesday's MLB clash against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The six-time All-Star and three-time Cy Young Award winner was taken to the locker room before the Nationals confirmed a break.

The 34-year-old is scheduled to pitch in a doubleheader against the Phillies on Wednesday, but his status for that start is unclear.

Scherzer is 5-5 for the season with a 2.81 ERA.
