News

Scherzer (14-7) twirled eight scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and no walks while striking out 10 in a victory over the Orioles on Thursday.

Impact

It was vintage Mad Max on display as he made one of the most potent offenses in baseball look like a Little League team. Should the Nationals make it to the World Series, they have a lot to feel good about when it comes to their ace. In 31 innings against AL teams, Scherzer has allowed just three earned runs, 16 hits and two walks while tallying 46 strikeouts (0.87 ERA and 0.58 WHIP). Overall, the right-hander with the best WHIP in the majors for a starting pitcher is on pace to break last season's career-high strikeout total of 276.
