Scherzer (3-2) gave up one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out six in five innings en route to the win Sunday in the Mets' 8-2 victory over Washington in Game 2 of a doubleheader.

Scherzer was making his first start since giving up six earned runs in 3.1 innings May 3 in Detroit, so it's a positive to see him back on track, especially since a week ago he has been pitching through shoulder discomfort in addition to his recent neck spasms. For his next outing, Scherzer lines up to pitch at home this upcoming weekend against Cleveland.
