Scherzer throws shutout, steals a base

Max Scherzer, the reigning back-to-back NL Cy Young Award winner, showed off his two-way skills on Monday night. I guess he didn’t want Shohei Ohtani having all the fun.

On the mound, Scherzer manhandled the Braves, striking out 10 in his fifth-career shutout. It was his first shutout since his 17-strikeout no-hitter against the Mets in September 2015.

At the plate Scherzer went 1-for-4 with a single against Braves righty Peter Moylan. He also stole second base. It was Scherzer’s first career steal.

Scherzer smacked his first (and so far only) career home run last season. Now he has his first stolen base. The Nationals even gave him the base as a memento.

Davey presented Max with the base after the game, and honestly he will probably treasure that more than the Cy Young.

Through three starts this season, Scherzer is 2-1 with a 0.90 ERA. He’s struck out 27 in 20 innings.
