Max Scherzer allowed one run on four hits and a walk over six innings on Sunday against the A's. He struck out seven and earned the win, moving to 11-4.
Scherzer was supposed to be capped at around 90 pitches, so his six-inning outing worked perfectly. He was staked to a huge lead so he was able to be aggressive and pitch to contact a bit, leading to a lower whiff percentage than usual. He's now at a 2.13 ERA and 0.88 WHIP, and will try to lead the Mets to an NL East crown when he takes on the Braves next weekend.
