Max Scherzer collects eighth win Friday over the Marlins

Max Scherzer improved to 8-1 after the Nationals beat the Marlins 9-5 on Friday. He pitched six innings, allowing seven hits and four runs while striking out four and walking two.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer wasn't at his sharpest, but if this constitutes a bad start then Scherzer owners can live with it. His ERA fell to 2.13 and his K/9 fell to 13.56. This was the first time all season he allowed more than two earned runs and had a K/9 under 10. His next start comes Wednesday against the Orioles in Baltimore.

Max Scherzer fans 13 in no decision Saturday

Max Scherzer pitched well in a no decision Saturday against the Dodgers. He pitched seven innings, striking out 13 and walking three while allowing two earned runs on five hits.

Fantasy Impact

Scherzer left the game in line for the win, but the Nationals bullpen let him down in this one. His ERA actually rose in this start to 1.78, but that just shows how dominant he has been. His next start should be a good one as he takes on the Miami Marlins in Miami next Friday.

Nationals vs Dodgers postponed on Friday

Friday's matchup between the Nationals and Dodgers has been postponed due to rain.

Fantasy Impact

It'll be made up on Saturday as part of a double header. Max Scherzer and Ross Stripling will simply have their starts pushed back a day.

Max Scherzer picks up seventh win Friday

Max Scherzer pitched seven innings of one run ball against the Diamondbacks on Friday, striking out 11 and walking none. He improved to 7-1 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

His ERA actually rose in this one to 1.69, but that just shows how domiant he's been. His 13.96 K/9 and 0.61 HR/9 would actually be career bests if he maintains them. We can't expect Scherzer to be this good all season, but he's among the best pitchers is baseball if not the very best.

Max Scherzer Ks 15 in no-decision

Max Scherzer struck out 15 batters over 6 1/3 innings in Sunday's no-decision against the Phillies. He allowed one run on five hits and two walks.

Fantasy Impact

It marked the fifth time in eight starts that Scherzer has registered 10 or more strikeouts to start the season. He now has 80 Ks in 51 2/3 innings with an ERA and WHIP of 1.74 and 0.85. He's arguably the best pitcher in the game and certainly has returned value in the early going.
