Max Scherzer Forgets How To Play Baseball In Mets’ Wild Card Game; Leaves To Boos
Max Scherzer stepped on the mound to cheerful crowds, he would then leave just five innings later in dispair and boos.
Tonight marked the first wild card game for the New York Mets as they took up the San Diego Padres at Citi Field. The Mets won 101-games this 2022 regular season as the Padres won only 89. On the mound for New York is Max Scherzer, a veteran pitcher who is almost goin to walk into a spot in Cooperstown, when he retires.
With the new MLB playoff system there is now more than one wild card game as it is now a best of three series. In this series the Mets have home advantage due to their 100+ win season over the Padres sub 90 win campaign.
Max Scherzer would struggle from the start and would end up having the worst playoff appearance of his career to date. The righty was taken out after 4.2 IP, allowing a total of four home runs in the postseason game (first time of his career). Scherzer would also allow a total of seven runs before he was taken out, the most runs he has allowed in a postseason game. Several career records were set, sadly they were all negative feats.
