Max Scherzer takes third loss Saturday

by Mike Maher | Nationals Correspondent | Sun, Apr 21st 10:59am EDT

Nationals starter Max Scherzer allowed six earned runs on 11 hits and no walks while striking out nine over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Miami Marlins on Saturday. The loss drops him to 1-3 on the season.

Fantasy Impact:

While this was a rough outing for Scherzer and his fantasy owners, the silver lining is that he still managed to strike out nine batters. Despite what is now a 4.45 ERA through his first five starts, the Washington ace also has 44 strikeouts against just five walks over 32 1/3 innings. His 2.23 FIP and .395 BABIP suggest that some bad luck has factored into his recent results, so better times should be ahead. He is currently scheduled to take on the San Diego Padres at home in his next start.
