Max Scherzer shuts down the Reds en route to 15th victory

RHP Max Scherzer blanked the Reds on Saturday when he allowed just two hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in the Dodgers' 5-1 win.

Fantasy Impact:

The Reds never even had a chance against "Mad Max," as he was locked in from the opening frame. He uncharacteristically walked a few batters and his strikeout numbers were a tad lower than what fantasy managers have come to expect but it was a dominant effort all the same. The 37-year-old hurler has been incredible since coming over from the Nationals at the trade deadline and now owns a sparkling 2.08 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 226:35 K/BB ratio over 169 innings (28 starts). He'll get the D-Backs on the road in his next turn.
