WASHINGTON -- Two-time National League Pitcher of the Month Max Scherzer has been so dominant for such a sustained period of time, a slipup, like the one he experienced Tuesday night against the Reds, seemed all that more foreign.
"I just didn't have it today. I just missed with location on a few pitches to the wrong hitters," Scherzer said after the Nationals' 5-0 loss. "But at the end of the day, this is not one of these games where you beat yourself up."
