Nationals SP Max Scherzer has rough outing against Pirates
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

A little more than a month after he no-hit the Pirates, Nationals ace Max Scherzer struggled in the rematch on Friday. Scherzer allowed five runs on seven hits over five innings on Friday. He walked one and struck out eight, but did not factor in the decision. The Pirates would win the game 7-5.

Scherzer did not have his best stuff in this one. He allowed a two run home run to Pedro Alvarez in the second inning. Then, after the Nationals scored four runs to take the lead, the right-hander allowed two more longballs in the fifth--a two-run bomb to Gregory Polanco and a solo shot to Neil Walker. 

This was the sixth time in his career that he gave up three home runs in a game. The last time was in September of 2011. 

The poor outing was probably just a blip on the radar for one of the premier pitchers in the game. This was the second time in four starts that he gave up five runs, however.

Nationals SP Max Scherzer unable to outduel Zack Greinke
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals All-Star Max Scherzer threw well over six innings Sunday against the Dodgers. Unfortunately, he went up against Zack Greinke in a battle of All-Star starters and ended up on the wrong end of a 5-0 loss.

Scherzer (10-8) could not outduel Greinke, who pushed his scoreless innings streak to 43 2/3. Scherzer allowed one run on seven hits and one walk, while striking out eight in six innings. He threw 70 of 98 pitches for strikes.

He has allowed two or fewer runs in six of his last seven starts. He has a 2.09 ERA on the season.

Heavy workload no sweat for Nationals ace Max Scherzer
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Nationals ace Max Scherzer has pitched 132 innings this season, the highest total at this point in the year of his major league career. It remains to be seen if that bodes well for the second half, but he's certainly not complaining.

Scherzer has thrown 100 or more pitches in 13 of his 18 starts, hitting a season-high 116 in a shutout win over Milwaukee in which he struck out 16.

"I'm fine with the workload," he told masnsports.com. "I've always said I'm built for 110 putches and I go up to 120, low 120s if need be. It just takes a lot of work between the starts and that's what I'm prepared to do and that's what I've always been doing. I'm comfortable with it. I want the ball in those situations."

It certainly seems to be working at Scherzer is enjoying his finest season. He is 10-7 and his 2.11 ERA would be easily a career-best if maintained the rest of the year.

Nationals ace Max Scherzer wins 10th game
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Nationals starter Max Scherzer closed out the season on a strong note, falling one out short of a complete game, but still picking up his 10th win of the first half in a 3-2 win over the Orioles on Sunday. 

Scherzer allowed two solo home runs to Adam Jones but little else as he ended a two-game losing streak, scattering four hits on the day while striking out seven and walking none. 

Scherzer (10-7), lowered his ERA to 2.11 on the year.
