Max Scherzer roughed up by former team as Tigers sweep doubleheader from Mets | Mets Post Game

In this Mets post game news conference, Max Scherzer's first start after his 10-game suspension did not go well, as the Tigers roughed him up for eight hits and six earned runs in a little over three innings and completed a doubleheader sweep. Scherzer blamed the inability to locate his pitches, especially in the stretch, which he maintained is "systematic of a long layoff." The only bright spot for the veteran righthander was not suffering any ill-effects from a previously nagging back injury.
