Nationals SP Max Scherzer knocked around for five runs vs. Reds
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Max Scherzer did not flirt with a no-hitter on Tuesday. In fact, the Nationals ace endured his ugliest start in quite some time. Scherzer lasted just 4 2/3 innings against the Reds, allowing five runs on seven hits. He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

Scherzer got into early trouble by allowing two runs to score in the first inning. Then in the third, he gave up a solo home run to Joey Votto before allowing two more runs in the fifth, as the Reds went on to win 5-0.

Tuesday's outing was likely just a mere blip on the radar for the All-Star right-hander, as he still sport. This was Scherzer's shortest start since June 17, 2014. It was also the first time this year that he did not pitch at least six innings.

Nationals SP Max Scherzer gives up walk-off hit in 2-1 loss
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals ace Max Scherzer was brilliant in his start against the Braves on Thursday, but he was saddled with his sixth loss of the season. Scherzer pitched into the ninth inning, but with the score tied 1-1, he allowed an infield hit and a sacrifice bunt, followed by a game-winning RBI single by Cameron Maybin.

Overall, Scherzer (9-6) pitched 8 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He struck out nine and did not walk a batter. It was a tough ending of what was otherwise a domiant performance by Scherzer.

Nationals' Max Scherzer flirts with another no-no, gets win on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Coming off of his first-career no-hitter in his last start, Nationals right-hander Max Scherzer looked like he was heading towards another hitless outing on Friday. 

Scherzer was perfect for 5 1/3 innings against the Phillies, until Freddy Galvis broke up the bid with a one-out double in the sixth. Before that two-bagger, Scherzer had gone 16 1/3 hitless innings, spanning three starts.

Ultimately, Scherzer wound up going six innings, giving up two runs on five hits on Friday. He struck out seven without walking a batter, though he did give up a solo home run to Ben Revere in the eighth inning. 

But Scherzer was still able to pick up his ninth win of the season, as the Nationals topped the Phillies 5-2.

"I was pounding the zone. Again, another outing with no walks. That's what you pride yourself on -- just attacking the zone," Scherzer said, per MLB.com. "The defense made some good plays. I was [on the same page with] Willie [Ramos]."

Nationals SP Max Scherzer nails down no-no after perfecto ruined
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

One measly hit-by-pitch destroyed a perfect game for sizzling Nationals starter Max Scherzer on Saturday. Nothing could destroy his first no-hitter.

The Pirates certainly couldn't as they flailed helplessly at his offerings. Scherzer was on the verge of a perfect game when Jose Tabata lowered his elbow into a pitch and let it plunk him. A flyout off the bat of Josh Harrison clinched the no-no.

It also marked an incredible two-start blitz for Scherzer, who has allowed one hit and fanned 26 with one walk in 18 innings over that period.

Scherzer did not start out on fire in terms of strikeouts, but he picked up steam to fan two in the third, fourth, sixth and seventh innings. He threw just 92 pitches through eight, which allowed him not only to shoot for the perfect game, but manage the third complete game of his major league career.

After throwing a ridiculous 82 of 106 pitches for strikes, Scherzer will try to remain on a roll in his next start. He has one heck of a chance - it's against lowly Philadelphia.
