WASHINGTON — Francisco Lindor singled to break up Max Scherzer’s no-hit bid and scored in the seventh inning, and Trevor Bauer pitched the Cleveland Indians to a 3-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

The Indians played without Manager Terry Francona, who complained of chest pain while speaking to reporters before the game.

Francona was examined by the Nationals Park EMT and remained at the stadium. The Indians said Francona was feeling better at the start of the game and didn’t go to the hospital, calling the decision not to manage a precautionary one.

Jose Ramirez went 2 for 4 with an RBI double in the seventh and an RBI single in the ninth. Lonnie Chisenhall drove in Ramirez in the seventh while Cleveland cracked Scherzer after Bauer kept the Nationals at bay.
