Scherzer’s big game gives him 19th winNEW YORK - During a season of nearly unprecedented pitching success, Max Scherzer relished a rare opportunity to talk about his bat.
“Definitely my own,” he said. “P-100, says Max Scherzer on it.”
Scherzer outpitched Matt Harvey in their All-Star rematch, striking out 11 and hitting a stunning RBI double that sent the Detroit Tigers to a 3-0 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday.
Scherzer (19-1) joined Rube Marquard in 1912 and Roger Clemens in 2001 as the only major league pitchers to win 19 of their first 20 decisions in a season.
