Max Scherzer Newsbeat

Max Scherzer is 17th pitcher since 1900 to strike out 300 in season

WASHINGTON—Chalk up another milestone for Max Scherzer.

The Washington Nationals ace recorded his 300th strikeout of the season Tuesday night. The landmark whiff came in the top of the seventh inning, when Scherzer got Miami Marlins rookie Austin Dean swinging on a 3-2 slider for the second out.

Prior to ringing up Dean on the 10th pitch of the at-bat, Scherzer threw four consecutive fastballs, each of which the Miami left fielder fouled off. After every offering, the boisterous fans at Nationals Park, which included Scherzer’s wife, Erica, grew louder, chanting, “Let’s go, Max!” When Dean finally struck out, Scherzer smacked his glove in excitement and waved as the crowd of 26,483 gave him a prolonged standing ovation.

Max Scherzer doesn’t fear hitters or swimming with sharks

Q: What drives you?
A: To be better. That drive to get better for me is my No. 1 goal. To find deficiencies within my game that I believe I can get better at.
