Mets vs. Nationals Recap: deGrom and Scherzer duel, but bats can’t beat the Nats

Max Scherzer struggled late against the Braves last week in Nationals Park, but he was much sharper last night in SunTrust Park... The seven earned runs Max Scherzer allowed in his start against the Atlanta Braves last week in the nation’s capital were the most the right-hander has given up this season. “Usually he finishes strong, and that’s why we took him to the max the last time, so he would get prepared for this...” - Dusty Baker unintentionally using a pun It was a less-than stellar outing by the 33-year-old Scherzer, who walked six batters in that outing as well, more than...

The Braves are already eliminated. Sure, Max Scherzer — who, granted, is normally the main story whenever he pitches — was on the hill, but that happens a couple dozen times a year for Washington. In other words, same old, same old. So, in the third inning, Ryan Zimmerman, bored...
