Max Scherzer (39, Texas Rangers) took the loss after failing to complete five innings of work. But it wasn’t without merit. He moved into 11th place on the all-time strikeout list.토토사이트
Texas hosted the Milwaukee Brewers on April 21 at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.
On the mound for Texas, Scherzer threw 99 pitches (61 for strikes) over 3 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on three hits.
In particular, Scherzer struggled with his command, walking four batters and striking out four. Texas eventually fell to 2-6, and Scherzer suffered his fifth loss.
But there was a silver lining. Scherzer’s four strikeouts on the day gave him 3344 for his career, passing Phil Niekro’s 3342. He’s No. 1 on the active list and No. 11 on the major league’s all-time list.
He also closed the gap on Greg Maddux for 10th place on the all-time list to 27. It’s looking increasingly likely that Scherzer will move into the top 10 this season.
However, he’ll have to settle for 10th all-time this season. Ninth on the all-time list is Walter Johnson with 3509. Nolan Ryan leads the category with 5714.
Meanwhile, despite the loss, Texas maintained a 2.5-game lead in the American League West over the Seattle Mariners, as the Houston Astros were unable to overtake them.
