      Nationals' Max Scherzer wraps up 2015 season with second no-hitter

      Nationals ace Max Scherzer (14-12) was spectacular on Saturday, picking up his second no-hitter of the season while striking out 17 Mets in a 2-0 win. Scherzer should have been rewarded with a perfect game, but Yunel Escobar had an egregious error in the sixth to cost Scherzer. It took the righty 109 pitches to get through the junior varsity Mets lineup and his breaking balls were just ridiculous on Saturday. He finished the season with a 2.79 ERA and 0.92 WHIP, while recording an absurd 276:34 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

      Nationals' Max Scherzer flirts with second no-hitter in win Monday

      Nationals ace Max Scherzer (13-12) struck out 10 while surrendering only two hits, an earned run and three walks in Monday's 5-1 victory over the Reds. Scherzer came within five outs of his second no-hitter of 2015, surrendering a one-out single to Tucker Barnhart in the eighth inning. The veteran had some nasty stuff Monday, inducing an impressive 24 swings-and-misses and throwing his fastball between 95 and 99 miles per hour well into the late innings. Scherzer also produced his second consecutive double-digit strikeout game and third of September. When the Reds did make contact, it was usually in the Nationals' infield, with the five fly balls surrendered by Scherzer tying his season low in a game in 2015. The Nationals ace figures to take the mound one final time this coming Saturday against the Mets.

      Nationals SP Max Scherzer strikes out 12 in losing effort

      Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer (12-12) struck out a dozen, but also gave up four runs on seven hits and two walks over 6 2/3 innings in a losing effort against Baltimore on Wednesday. He keeps piling up the whiffs, but Scherzer's pre-All-Star break struggles simply won't end. Once again, it was the long ball that sunk him, as he gave up a pair of two-run homers -- one in the first inning and one in the seventh -- with sparkling work in between. Scherzer has now given up a ridiculous 17 homers in 79.2 innings in the second half. For comparison, he gave up 10 in 132 innings in the first half.

      Nationals SP Max Scherzer gives up two runs in no-decision

      Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer allowed two runs on five hits, walking three and striking out six over seven innings, but was left with a no-decision against Miami on Friday night. Scherzer allowed a two-run home run to Christian Yelich in the first inning, but then shut the Marlins down through seven innings. While he didn't log the win, it was very encouraging to see him pitch well and keep the Nationals in a game they really needed to win. He has struggled of late, and they need him to step forward through the end of the year.

      Nationals SP Max Scherzer escapes with no-decision

      Nationals ace Max Scherzer played the role of Houdini in St. Louis on Wednesday. His effort could have been named after an old movie - The Great Escape. Scherzer did not retire the Cardinals in order in any of the six innings he pitched. But he got out of one jam after another in leaving with a no-decision. He gave up two runs - it could have been much worse - on 11 hits. Scherzer had his strikeout pitches going, which certainly helped. He fanned 10. The only runs he allowed came on a Brandon Moss homer in the second and Tommy Pham single in the fifth. Scherzer still remains winless in seven starts since July 30.

      Nationals SP Max Scherzer continues August struggles

      Nationals starter Max Scherzer performed better Thursday in Colorado than he has in recent outings, but the guy who dominated hitters into early July is still missing. Scherzer bounced back from a miserable outing Friday to hold the Rockies to three runs on eight hits in six innings. He walked three and whiffed seven in taking a loss that lowered his record to 11-10. He has dropped five of his last seven decisions. The right-hander blanked Colorado through four on two hits, but two singles and Jose Reyes double ended the shutout in the fifth and a single by pitcher Yohan Flande added another run in the sixth. He departed after allowing a single to start the seventh. That run crossed the plate and resulted in his defeat. Scherzer has been awful in August, during which he has given up 16 runs in 21 innings.

      Nationals SP Max Scherzer allows six runs, picks up loss

      Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer suffered one of his worst starts of the season on Friday against the Giants. Scherzer lasted just three innings after allowing six runs on seven hits. He allowed two home runs while only striking out three batters. "I get it. I stunk. There is no getting around that," Scherzer said, per "... My arm slot is a little low right now. It causes my fastball to flatten out. When you think about the results tonight, a lot of damage was done against the fastball. "It's going to take some work. You have to create a good habit with it. I have to throw the ball 10,000 times to a wall just to make sure I have this good habit. This isn't a huge fix, but it's a time-consuming fix." With the loss, Scherzer dropped to 11-9 on the season.
