The Nats left Arizona with a sour taste in their mouthes after losing the finale 2–1 in the late innings.
Washington still won the series, but it could have been a sweep if the offense had kept up its hot run. Matt Adams didn’t start but came on to pinch hit and was retired. He’s no longer averaging a homer a game in May.
But it’s all good because Max Scherzer is back on the mound Friday. Mad Max will turn 34 this summer but he’s as good as he’s ever been this season, better actually.
Scherzer has so far posted career-highs in ERA, WHIP, FIP and K’s/9 innings. The reigning two-time NL Cy Young winner is on pace for a third.
Of course, once upon a time, Scherzer was Arizona’s. The D’Backs drafted him in the first round of the 2006 MLB Draft and held onto him for two seasons before trading him to Detroit.
That was part of a three-team deal in which the Yankees were otherwise involved and acquired Curtis Grandson from the Tigers. Arizona netted Ian Kennedy, who was good for several seasons but it’s safe to say the Tigers won that deal.
Scherzer threw 4.1 perfect innings of relief in his Major League debut for Arizona, 13 up and 13 down, against the Astros when they were still in the National League.
That earned him his first career start the next week, which didn’t go as well. Eventually, Arizona gave up on him because it never thought he’d be able to harness that big arm of his. Something tells me Scherzer remembers this all.
