Washington Nationals P Game 5 start with neck spasms



WASHINGTON – Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer was scratched from his scheduled start in Game 5 of the World Series because of spasms near his neck.

Washington manager Dave Martinez made the announcement 3 1/2 hours before the first pitch Sunday night.

Joe Ross was scheduled to start in place of Scherzer. Gerrit Cole starts for Houston, with the Series tied 2-2.

Martinez said Scherzer: "He was really hurting."

Martinez said Scherzer was "locked up" and "he was in a bad place."

"He's very upset," Martinez said.
