Nats Journal: Max Scherzer bounces back despite high walk total

MIAMI — As he attempted to bounce back from one of his worst outings of the season with a better one Thursday, Nationals’ ace Max Scherzer pitched with a slightly lower arm slot than his usual three-quarters spot.

Dingers > HBP’s

Last time the Pirates faced Max Scherzer, the story was all about a man with a lips tattoo on his neck getting hit by a pitch. (Oh, and that whole no-hitter thing.) I like this storyline a little better. Your browser does not support iframes. Pedro got the party started – OF COURSE he comes alive […]

Max Scherzer struggles, Nationals fall to Pirates

PITTSBURGH — Once Danny Espinosa skied to spear another hard-hit ball given up by Max Scherzer, the right-handed starter made a beeline to the dugout to end his night after five innings, his jersey dark grey with sweat. For much of the season, Scherzer has been a major force carrying the Nationals, at times almost single-handedly. But on Friday, Scherzer simply wasn’t at his best.Read full article >>

Max Scherzer v. Pirates: Round 2

The Pirates will face off against the pitcher that nearly threw a perfect game against them a month ago (and, uh, did throw a no-hitter, I guess I’m burying the lede on that one) tonight at PNC Park, and I won’t lie, I don’t totally hate their chances against Max Scherzer tonight. The National lineup […]

Game 95: Nats at Pirates

The last time he faced the Pirates, Max Scherzer … well, you know what he did. (And what he came oh-so-close to doing beyond that.) So what does Scherzer have in store for tonight’s rematch in Pittsburgh? On paper, this looks like quite an advantageous matchup for the Nationals, who are getting the Pirates’ Big…

Boswell: Zack Greinke and Max Scherzer make most of heeding the ‘Don’t walk’ sign

Two spectacular pitchers at the height of their careers and one powerful trend in pitching — walk nobody — were on display at Nationals Park on Sunday. Zack Greinke and Max Scherzer were the hurlers, locked in a pitchers’ duel most of the day. Greinke allowed no runs in eight innings, fanned 11 and won. He now stands atop a stunning mound of 43 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings, making him the third pitcher in the Lively Ball era since 1920 to make six straight scoreless starts.Read full article >>
