Max Scherzer whiffed Austin Dean on a wicked 3-2 slider to reach that milestone tonight against the Fish. This was the first right-handed pitcher to strike out 300 since 2002 when Curt Schilling did so.Not surprisingly, Scherzer was dominant tonight, going 7 innings while giving up 5 hits and 1 run, while striking out 10 without walking a batter. It’s relatively rare to find yourself watching an opposing pitching and getting quite a bit of joy from it, particularly if that pitcher is dominating your team. Hate to admit it, but Max Scherzer is that kind of pitcher in my eyes. His pitching style is aggressive anddetermined. Other than a fourth inning double to left by Brian Anderson that scored Miguel Rojas from first, Scherzer’s night went without hitch. With his 300 strikeout with one out in the seventh, Scherzer was greeted with a several minute longstandingovation and left the game after that inning with a 3-1 lead.In the bottom of the seventh Dave Cash Jersey , the Nats made sure that they wouldpreserve the victory for their ace by tagging Marlins relievers for 6 runs to take a commanding 9-1 lead. Miami would add a few runs late, most notably via a two-run blast by Peter O’ Brien.Alas, tonight was not to be a success for the Marlins in a game that will be remembered by the achievement of the opposing starter.Jeff Brigham, the Marlins starter, ran into his usual issues of walks ( 4 in only 4 innings pitched tonight), while giving up a three-run homer in the first inning to Anthony Rendon that basically decided the game nearly from the start.The Marlins are back at it tomorrow in Washington at 4:05 for the series finale to salvage a game in the three-game set.Attendance: 26,483fangraphs.comKing Fish: Scherzer, of courseFlounder: Jeff BrighamTurning Point: Rendon’s three run shotPlease leave any Icthy picks in the comments below.

They face a better (though disappointing) team, and face Max Scherzer, one of the favorite for the Cy Young Award. Oh , and he has won the last two Cy Young Awards. He also enters tonight’s game with 290 strikeouts, just ten awayhis first 300 strikeout season.This also could be one of the last games that Bryce Harjuper at Nationals Park as a home player. Facing him is the Marlins #20 prospect, Jeff Brigham. Brigham has struggled with control (6.6 BB/9 innings), and is 0-3 with a 5.84 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP, so it should be intriguing to watch him try to put it all together for the first time on a big league level. It will be soon that Marlins baseball will be going away for the winter, so let’s enjoy it will it lasts!Thread Question:Who would you vote for the NL Cy Young Award? Opening day was particularly special for Fernando Tatis Jr. and Eloy Jimenez.In large part because they weren’t stuck at El Paso and Charlotte.It’s common for baseball’s top prospects to spend a bit of time in the minors at the beginning of the season, but the Padres and White Sox put Tatis and Jimenez on the roster this year, and they made their big league debuts Thursday. Tatis, a shortstop, had two hits in San Diego’s win over San Francisco . Jimenez, an outfielder, had a run and an RBI in Chicago’s loss to Kansas City .Jimenez hit .355 in 55 games at Triple-A Charlotte last year, and shortly before the start of this season Aaron Nola Jersey , he signed a $43 million, six-year contract — a record high for a player under club control who hadn’t yet appeared in a major league game.So it was no surprise to see Jimenez in the majors right away. Tatis’ situation was different. Delaying a player’s service time for a few weeks can delay potential free agency down the road, and Tatis hadn’t played above Double-A. But instead of sending him to Triple-A El Paso, the Padres brought him right to the majors.“I told my dad, my head was in the minor leagues,” Tatis said. “If they sent me down, I was not surprised. If they called me up, it was going to be a big surprise.”Tatis, who turned 20 on Jan. 2, became the youngest player to start on opening day since 19-year-old Adrian Beltre in 1999. He became the youngest player with a multihit game on opening day since Robin Yount in 1975.Tatis is ranked as the game’s No. 2 prospect by, behind only Vladimir Guerrero Jr. The debate about whether Guerrero should start the season with the Toronto Blue Jays or in the minors became moot when he went down with a strained left oblique.ALREADY?It didn’t take long for some position players to take the mound this year.The circumstances this time: The Dodgers and Diamondbacks played a 13-inning marathon Friday night that lasted over six hours. On Saturday, Los Angeles beat Arizona 18-5, with Diamondbacks catcher John Ryan Murphy giving up seven runs in two innings of relief. Dodgers catcher Russell Martin also pitched Juan Samuel Jersey , retiring the side in the ninth on 10 pitches.ALL OR NOTHINGThere’s been plenty of talk over the past few years about baseball becoming a game of home runs and strikeouts, and the very early returns in 2019 indicate nothing is changing in that regard. So far, 23.2 percent of all plate appearances have resulted in a strikeout, and 3.3 percent have resulted in a homer.The numbers last season were 22.3 and 3.0.HIGHLIGHTLorenzo Cain robbed Jose Martinez of a tying home run for the final out of Milwaukee’s 5-4 win over St. Louis on opening day. Martinez’s pinch-hit drive nearly cleared the wall in right-center, but Cain brought the ball back, giving the Brewers the victory.LINE OF THE WEEKWhile much of the focus was on Bryce Harper and Manny Machado as they began playing for the Phillies and Padres, Paul Goldschmidt got off to quite a start with the Cardinals. Goldschmidt, who was traded from Arizona to St. Louis in the offseason, homered three times in a 9-5 win over Milwaukee on Friday night.Goldschmidt was denied a chance at a fourth home run when he was intentionally walked in the ninth inning.
