With 9 Ks, Nats ace Max Scherzer looks ready for opening day

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) From the pitch-accompanying grunts to the pawing at the mound with his cleats, from the nine Ks to the 14 consecutive outs, Max Scherzer sure looked to be ready for the regular season.

After giving up a combined eight runs over 8 2/3 innings across his preceding pair of Grapefruit League starts, Scherzer was much more Scherzer-like Saturday in an exhibition game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The three-time Cy Young Award winner allowed one run and four hits in six innings, with zero walks in his next-to-last outing before taking the mound opening day against the New York Mets.

"He knows it's getting to be that time. He's got one more outing after this and then it's game time," Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. "So I expected him to go out there and do exactly what he did."
