Scherzer Allows Two Earned Runs in 3.1 Innings in Ponies Rehab Stint
In a rehab stint with the Rumble Ponies, three-time Cy Young award winner and Mets' starter Max Scherzer went three-and-a-third innings, allowing two earned runs while striking out six.
Scherzer last pitched on May 18 against the St. Louis Cardinals. Scherzer struck out three in the first inning while giving up a walk before getting three up and three down in the second. The trouble began in the third inning when the Phils recorded back-to-back doubles to score the game's first run. As Scherzer approached his pitch count, he came out for the fourth inning, recording one out and allowing one home run.
After the game, Scherzer says he's feeling pretty good.
"Went out there and accomplished what I thought I was going to do," Scherzer said. "I wanted to get four ups in, 65 pitches in, was able to step on a few fastballs. I felt like that was a good thing, was able to throw all my pitches and navigate the fourth inning and make sure I didn't get hurt there in the fourth. You check all the boxes here."
