Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer passes 250 Ks in fourth straight season; finishes strong in Atlanta...
Max Scherzer struggled late against the Braves last week in Nationals Park, but he was much sharper last night in SunTrust Park...
The seven earned runs Max Scherzer allowed in his start against the Atlanta Braves last week in the nations capital were the most the right-hander has given up this season.
It was a less-than stellar outing by the 33-year-old Scherzer, who walked six batters in that outing as well, more than he has in a start since back in 2013, though four of the six came in a long, 19-pitch sixth in which Washingtons ace tried to stretch himself out with an eye on preparing for the postseason after missing a few starts with a neck issue.
ATLANTA - Tuning up for the playoffs, the Washington Nationals reached all sorts of personal milestones.For Max Scherzer, it was another 250-strikeout season. For Ryan Zimmerman, it was 100 RBIs. For Trea Turner, it was Washington's most stolen bases since the team moved from Montreal."Guys are having good years," said manager Dusty Baker, whose team already clinched the NL East. "It's especially nice when you're getting wins while guys are putting up those numbers."
Max Scherzer coughed up seven runs in six-plus innings and took a loss to the Braves on Wednesday. He struggled badly with his control, issuing an uncharacteristic six walks while striking out seven in the sub-par outing. [...]

Sale (17-7) shut the Orioles out over eight innings Wednesday, striking out 13 while allowing just four hits and no walks in a 9-0 victory.
The O's were simply overmatched in this one -- only one of their hits went for extra bases, and they never marshaled a serious threat against the dominating lefty. Sale has now recorded double-digit strikeouts a ridiculous 18 times in 31 starts, and he's hit exactly 300 on the season, leading second-place whiff artist Max Scherzer by an incredible 47. The 28-year-old's 2017 represents just the 35th 300-strikeout campaign in MLB history. He'll have a chance to to pile up a few more Tuesday against Toronto, but it's not clear whether Sale will make a second start next week or get rested ahead of the playoffs.
