Max Scherzer and Dusty Baker couldn't quite connect on this high-five

After Anthony Rendon hit a home run to give the Nationals a 4-2 lead over the D-backs in Tuesday's game, Max Scherzer was very excited. He was out of the game at that point -- after pitching six solid innings -- but was now in line for his 19th win of the season.
That deserved a celebration. That deserved a high-five with Dust -- what is that?

Luckily, the manager and pitcher made up for the missed connection with a very vigorous hug:

Good job, guys. Good win.
