Max Scherzer was in control throughout Thursday afternoon's 1-0 win over the Marlins, allowing just three hits and no runs over seven innings.
Scherzer had no margin for error in the contest, as the Nationals scored one run in the game, total. That's all Max Scherzer needs, apparently, as he allowed just three singles in a dominant performance. Perhaps the most notable aspect of the start was that the normally walk-stingy Scherzer handed out three free passes against six strikeouts. We're nitpicking, just because he's been so awesome this year. He'll carry a sharp 2.22 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 172/19 K/BB ratio across 150 innings into his next start, a home date with the Diamondbacks.
