MLB Playoffs: Max Scherzer to Throw Wild Card Game for Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers had an incredible season by being the second best record of all MLB at the end of the regular season, finishing with a 106-56 record; however, that was not enough for them to win the West Division of the National League, which they lost by a single game against the San Francisco Giants and now they will have to play for the Wild Card against the fearsome St. Louis Cardinals in a kill or die game for the still World Series champs.

The truth is that the Dodgers’ foreman, Dave Roberts, will have to risk everything for everything in the fateful game for the Wild Card and for this reason, according to Fabián Ardaya of The Athletic, nothing will be saved for that match and in the lomita will be the NL Cy Young candidate and undisputed ace of the team from the final trade date, Max Scherzer.

Scherzer will face veteran Adam Wainwright who will pitch for the St. Louis Cardinals, being announced by Mike Shildt when his classification as second on the NL Wild Card was confirmed.

Mad Max finished the regular season 15-4 in 30 starts, with a 2.46 ERA in 179.2 innings pitched and 236 strikeouts.

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and am going for my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.

I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils, and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
