Nationals' Max Scherzer: Records double-digit strikeouts in Saturday no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer mowed down 10 Padres but still did not factor into the decision Saturday, surrendering two earned runs on four hits over seven innings.

The Nationals ace threw 71 of his 99 pitches for strikes and induced a whopping 21 swinging strikes, with Ryan Schimpf's 415-foot two-run homer in the second serving as the only blemish on an otherwise dominant performance. It was Scherzer's first game in July with double-digit whiffs after accomplishing the feat in five of six June starts. He'll look to wrap up what has nevertheless been a solid July against the Giants next Friday.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Strong outing in Sunday's no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Scherzer (10-6) came away with a no-decision Sunday, despite allowing just one run on six hits and a walk over seven innings, while striking out seven in an 18-inning loss to the Pirates.

He was actually in line for the loss until Daniel Murphy bailed him out with a game-tying pinch-hit homer in the bottom of the ninth inning. Scherzer threw 75 of 103 pitches for strikes and generated 15 swinging strikes, lowering his ERA to 2.94 in the process. He'll next take the mound Saturday at home against the Padres.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Will pitch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer will take the mound Sunday against the Pirates, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

The Nats will use Stephen Strasburg, Tanner Roark and Scherzer for the three-game series, but an off day Monday gives them some flexibility with their rotation after that. Scherzer posted a 10-6 record with a 3.03 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and an MLB-leading 164 strikeouts in the first half before being named to his fourth consecutive All-Star team.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Stymies Mets in Saturday victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Scherzer (10-6) struck out nine and gave up one run (unearned) on three hits and two walks over seven innings in Saturday's 6-1 victory over the Mets.

Added to the NL All-Star roster in place of teammate Stephen Strasburg, Scherzer showed exactly why he should have been there to begin with, mowing the Mets down at a steady clip throughout his seven innings. He induced 18 swings-and-misses among the 73 pitches he threw for strikes, and a first-inning sacrifice fly was the only blemish on his stellar line for the afternoon, although even that sole run was unearned. The performance was Scherzer's third consecutive dominant effort, a stretch in which he's given up only two runs (one earned) on nine hits and six walks over 20.1 innings while recording 26 whiffs. He heads to the Mid-Summer Classic with a sparkling 0.96 WHIP and a whopping 164 strikeouts over 127.2 innings.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Makes one costly mistake in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (9-6) threw six strong innings Monday, allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out seven, but took the loss in a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Brewers.

A fifth-inning fastball to Martin Maldonado got a little too much of the plate and wound up in the seats to produce the game's only run. Scherzer was otherwise dominant, throwing 73 of 114 pitches for strikes and generating an eye-popping 21 swinging strikes, but his 1.57 HR/9 rate on the season continues to be his Achilles heel. He'll try to get back in the win column Saturday on the road against Matt Harvey and the Mets.
