  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Fans six in no-decision

    Scherzer yielded one run on nine hits over seven innings in Friday's loss to the Phillies. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

    It may not have been a prime Scherzer outing, but he turned in his 10th straight outing with two or fewer earned runs. He fired six scoreless innings Friday after giving up an RBI single to Alec Bohm in the first frame. Scherzer is sporting a terrific 1.93 ERA with a 126:17 K:BB through 16 starts. He's projected to start in Atlanta next week.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Dominant in win

    Scherzer (8-2) allowed four hits and struck out 11 across seven scoreless innings to earn the win in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader versus Atlanta.

    Scherzer let only one runner pass second base in this outing. He threw 80 of 108 pitches for strikes while racking up a filthy 23 whiffs. The ace right-hander has submitted seven straight quality starts since returning from an oblique injury in early July, and he's recorded 11 strikeouts in three of those outings. For the year, he owns a 1.98 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 120:17 K:BB across 95.2 innings through 15 starts. Scherzer is projected for a home start versus the Phillies next week.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Records seventh win

    Scherzer (7-2) earned the win over Washington on Monday, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out five batters over 6.2 innings.

    Facing the team with whom he won a World Series in 2019, Scherzer endured a rough fourth inning (during which he gave up both of his earned runs and four of his six hits) to notch his seventh victory of the campaign. The right-hander struck out only five batters -- his lowest mark since May 18 -- but nonetheless registered his sixth straight quality start. Scherzer has been all that the Mets could have hoped for when healthy this season, posting a 2.13 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 109:17 K: BB over 88.2 innings.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Dominant versus Yankees

    Scherzer allowed five hits, two walks and a hit batsman in seven shutout innings Wednesday in the Mets' win over the Yankees. He struck out six but did not factor into the decision.

    Scherzer pitched well enough to win, but David Peterson appeared out of the bullpen and allowed a game-tying two-run home run to Gleyber Torres in the eighth inning. This was Scherzer's third straight start without a win, his longest drought of the season. He now has a 2.09 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 104:15 K:BB in 82 innings across 13 turns, with all but three having been quality starts. The ace right-hander lines up for a favorable road start versus the Nationals next week.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Back on mound vs. Yankees

    Scherzer is scheduled to start Wednesday's series finale with the Yankees at Citi Field, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The Mets elected to adjust reorder their rotation following Monday's off day, so Scherzer will remain on four days' rest and take the hill Wednesday for what would have been David Peterson's day to pitch. Though Scherzer will miss out on a more favorable matchup this weekend in Miami, fantasy managers were already likely keeping the three-time Cy Young Award winner active regardless of his opponent. He enters Wednesday's contest with a 2.28 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 98:13 K:BB across 75 innings on the season.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Tough loss in quality start

    Scherzer (6-2) took the loss Friday, giving up two runs on five hits and a walk over six innings as the Mets fell 4-1 to the Padres. He struck out eight.

    The veteran right-hander made only one real mistake in his pitchers' duel with Yu Darvish, but Eric Hosmer took it the other way for a two-run home run and the Mets' offense couldn't come up with a response. Scherzer has now reeled off four straight quality starts since coming off the IL at the beginning of the month, posting a 1.78 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and eye-popping 39:2 K:BB through 25.1 innings over that stretch.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Fans 11 in nightcap

    Scherzer allowed two runs on eight hits and a walk with 11 strikeouts in 6.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Cubs in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    This was Scherzer's worst of three starts since returning from an oblique strain. The eight hits were a little concerning, but he was able to mitigate the damage well. He's racked up 31 strikeouts in 19.1 innings since his return, and he's allowed two or fewer runs in eight of his 11 starts this year. The star right-hander closes the first half of the campaign with a 2.22 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 90:12 K:BB in 69 innings.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Fans nine in Monday's win

    Scherzer (6-1) picked up the win Monday, allowing one run on three hits over seven innings in a 4-1 victory over Atlanta. He struck out nine without walking a batter.

    It was a vintage Scherzer performance, as the right-hander piled up 21 swinging strikes among his 93 pitches while taking a shutout into the seventh inning before Austin Riley broke it up with a solo shot. Scherzer has been on fire since coming off the injured list, posting a 20:0 K:BB over two starts, and on the season he boasts a 2.15 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 79:11 K:BB in 62.2 innings.

  • Mets' Max Scherzer: Dominant in return from IL

    Scherzer didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the Reds, scattering two hits over six scoreless innings. He struck out 11 without walking a batter.

    Making his first start since May 18 due to an oblique strain, Scherzer took out his pent-up frustrations on Cincinnati hitters, setting a new season high in Ks while firing 57 of 79 pitches for strikes, including 15 swinging strikes. Unfortunately for the right-hander, the Mets' offense didn't show up to support him. His return comes just in time for a tattered New York rotation that's missing five other potential members at the moment, including Jacob deGrom (shoulder), Tylor Megill (shoulder) and Chris Bassitt (COVID-19), and Scherzer will take a 2.26 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 70:11 K:BB through 55.2 innings into his next outing.
