Jenson Button believes that seventh place would have been possible at the Malaysian Grand Prix had it not been for an unlucky final Virtual Safety Car period.Button finished ninth in Sepang but lost out during the last Virtual Safety Car, having pitted just two laps before the race was neutralised following Lewis Hamiltons dramatic retirement with an engine failure. Button had been ahead of McLaren teammate Fernando Alonso and Force Indias Nico Hulkenberg, but ended up being jumped by both drivers when they effectively gained a free pit stop.It wasnt so bad but I was so unlucky with the Virtual Safety Car, he said. The cars behind me were on three-stops, I was on a two-stop strategy and two laps after I pitted there was a Virtual Safety Car so they gained about 15s with that.I was actually fourth after a great start but Kimi and Max just out-dragged me easily. It was looking OK, Hulkenberg and Fernando, behind me, were going for three stops, I was going for two and it was all looking good but then the Virtual Safety Car came out two laps after I pitted and that was it.The Briton struggled for pace on older tyres than Alonso and Hulkenberg in the latter stages in Malaysia. He was left to rue the missed opportunity to score more points and says he hopes his fortunes turn around in the final five grands prix of the season.Right at the end I simply wasnt that quick as my tyres were older than those of the cars in front. Hopefully for the last five races Ill be a bit luckier as Ive been a bit unlucky with strategies recently. Its a shame but I seem to be, in the last few races, with no luck on my side.The pace wasnt that great but I was still looking good for seventh place until the last VSC. Two stops is a better strategy but if theres a VSC at the right time for the others, then theres nothing you can do. We can just put this behind us and move forward. Onitsuka Tiger Mujer .

WASHINGTON -- Bryce Harper looked simply bewildered during his first three at-bats against the Phillies, all ending in swinging strikeouts. He came through big in his fourth plate appearance.Harper hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift the Washington Nationals to a 3-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.Harper whiffed repeatedly against Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff. He then provided the games only scoring against Patrick Schuster, who threw a wild pitch, issued a walk and gave up the homer without recording an out after replacing fellow reliever Luis Garcia (1-1).I was thinking to myself, `well, you struck out three times. Hit a homer and everybody will forget about that, Harper said. Look what happened.Nationals ace Max Scherzer gave up four hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings, and struck out eight to increase his NL lead to 251.Shawn Kelley (2-2) recorded the final out of the eighth and Mark Melancon pitched ninth for his 40th save as Washington won for the fifth time in six games.Ben Reveres single with one out in the eighth started the winning rally against Garcia, who was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley before the game. Daniel Murphy walked before Harpers heroics.The 2015 NL Most Valuable Player starred at the drive down the right field line before punctuating the drama with a bat flip.That was a dramatic home run, National manager Dusty Baker said. It just shows how strong he is mentally after you strike out three times and hit a home run. He had a rough night going up to then.Facing a 3-1 count against Schuster, Harper had one objective in mind.I was kind of shocked he threw it over the middle of the plate, Harper said of Schusters curveball. I was swinging no matter what anyway, to tell you the truth. If it had been in their dugout I probably would have swung at it.Eickhoff essentially matched Scherzer, keeping Washington off the scoreboard over six innings. He gave up five hits and struck out five.Tied for the NL lead with 16 wins, Scherzer won each of his previous four starts with 32 strikeouts and a 2.45 ERA in that stretch. He entered Saturdays matchup 3-0 against Philadelphia this season.ddddddddddddThe Cy Young contender wasnt special throughout -- he hit two batters -- and labored at times with long innings. He also got clutch outs when needed.With two runners on and one out in the first, Scherzer induced back-to-back infield pop-ups. He struck out Tommy Joseph to end the third with two runners in scoring position.I didnt think (Scherzer) was at his best tonight, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. He had a ton of pitches. He looked like he was struggling with command and we just couldnt take advantage of it.Philadelphias defense kept the game scoreless in the fourth. Jose Lobatons single with runners at first and second sent Clint Robinson around third. Center fielder Odubel Herreras throw bounced to home, where catcher Cameron Rupp shielded the plate and tagged out Robinson.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: 3B Maikel Franco pinch-hit in the seventh inning after sitting out the previous two games with a sore right thumb.Nationals: RHP Joe Ross, on the disabled list since July 3 with right shoulder inflammation, threw 60 pitches during a simulation at Nationals Park Saturday. (Joe) had good velocity. ... Changeup looked like hed never been out, manager Dusty Baker said.STRASBURG SPEAKSNationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg made his first comments since leaving Wednesdays start with a strained flexor mass in his right elbow. Strasburg passed on projecting a timeline for his return before or during the postseason.I cant make that claim, he said. Theres still pretty much a month left in the season. Im just trying to get back healthy. Hopefully were still playing baseball.BLANK CHECKSaturday marked the third time the Phillies were shut out by the Nationals this season and the 10th time they were held scoreless overall.UP NEXTPhillies LHP Adam Morgan (2-9, 5.90) faces LHP Gio Gonzalez (10-9, 4.40), who allowed six runs and eight hits in three innings in his last start on Monday against the Braves.
