Why you should back the Mets

Right-hander Max Scherzer is on the hill for New York and he can be overpowering and nasty at times. The eight-time All-Star has an array of pitches that can lead to a high volume of strikeouts as Scherzer is 3-0 with 33 strikeouts and an ERA of 1.80. In his last start, the three-time CY Young Award winner threw seven scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts and just two hits allowed.
