Nationals' Max Scherzer wraps up 2015 season with second no-hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer (14-12) was spectacular on Saturday, picking up his second no-hitter of the season while striking out 17 New York 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
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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 finally breaks through with win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Nationals starter Max Scherzer declared his slump over Sunday. He did it with his arm, not his mouth.

Scherzer blanked the host Marlins for eight innings on five hits. He walked none and fanned six in earning his first victory in nine starts. He had not won since July 30.

He had allowed 11 runs on 24 hits over his previous 19 innings.
