Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer is starting the second game of Wednesday’s doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies despite a broken nose.

The team confirmed Scherzer is making the start when it released its lineup for the nightcap.

Scherzer was injured Tuesday when he bunted a ball and it caromed right into his nose. He also is sporting a bruise around his right eye.

The Nationals said a CT scan was negative.

The right-handed Scherzer (5-5, 2.81 ERA) will try to pitch Washington to a sweep. The Nationals posted a 6-2 win in Game 1.
