Scherzer started the 2023 Major League Baseball game against the Atlanta Braves at True Park in Atlanta, Georgia, USA on the 8th (Korean time). Prior to this game, Atlanta was leading the National League with a season record of 36 wins and 24 losses (0.600 win rate).

Scherzer: Ronald Acuna Jr. (right fielder), Matt Olsen (1st baseman), Austin Riley (3rd baseman), Sean Murphy (catcher), Eddie Rosario (left fielder), Azi Albis (2nd baseman), Marcel Ossuna (DH) – Orlando Arcia (Shortstop) – Michael Harris II (Center fielder) It was against the Atlanta batting line.

At the end of the first inning, Scherzer announced a fresh start. He gave up one hit, but ended the inning by treating the opponent’s top batting line as ‘KKK’. Following his momentum, he allowed a three-way offense at the bottom of the second inning and one hit in the bottom of the third inning, as in the first inning, but blocked the opponent’s batting line with three strikeouts.

Scherzer, who had been going smoothly, faced a crisis from the bottom of the 4th inning when the team led 2-0. He couldn’t block the opponent’s run-in. With a run full of bases made up of a heavy hit and two infield hits, Arcia gave an infield hit and was pursued 2-1.

In the bottom of the 5th inning, when the team was leading 4-1, an additional run followed. After catching two out counts well, Riley got a hit. With 2nd out and 1st base, Murphy gave up a 2-run home run that went over the left wall, making it 4-3. The bottom of the 6th inning followed a similar pattern. After two outs, Arcia hit a double and allowed Harris II a 1 RBI double to tie the score at 4-4. In the second out and second base, Acuña Jr. hit a timely one RBI hit and gave it a turnaround 4-5.

In the end, the Mets bench removed Scherzer and put reliever Dominic Leon on the mound. Leon handled the follow-up hitter Olsen with a catcher ground ball, so Scherzer’s extra run didn’t go up. The final score was 5⅔innings, 11 hits (1 home run), no 4 walks, 10 strikeouts and 5 runs. His earned run average rose from 3.21 to 3.71.

Scherzer allowed double-digit hits for the first time this season, and the most recent was against the Philadelphia Phillies on May 9 last year, about a year ago.

Meanwhile, the Mets failed to keep an early lead and lost the flow in the middle and late stages of the game. In the bottom of the 8th inning, when the score was tight 5-5, Michael Harris Jr. hit a two-run homer and knelt down to 5-7. With the loss on this day, the Mets fell into a 5-game losing streak, bringing their season record to 30-32.
