‘KKKKKKKKKK+154km bang’ post-trade show of force, but is it a winning puzzle?

Max Scherzer, who was acquired by the Texas Rangers, made his presence felt with a perfect game.

Scherzer pitched a complete game against the Chicago White Sox on Thursday (April 4) at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. He threw 105 pitches in six innings, allowing seven hits, two walks, three runs, and nine strikeouts. Showcased quality start pitching (six innings of three earned runs or less). His fastball was clocked at 95.5 mph.

Scherzer’s performance led Texas to a 5-3 win over the White Sox. With the three-game winning streak, Texas improved to 63-46 on the season. They took sole possession of first place in the American League West. The White Sox dropped their fourth straight game and fell to 43-67 on the season.

Scherzer pitched a perfect game in his first start since being acquired in a trade. Scherzer was acquired from the New York Mets after Texas, in need of starting pitching reinforcements, made him a trade offer and he waived his no-trade clause.

Scherzer was forced to leave the Mets. When the Mets abandoned their goal of challenging for a pennant this season and announced a rebuild, Schuerzer was forced to leave. After meeting with general manager Billy Eppler, Scherzer agreed to the trade.

Texas bolstered its starting rotation with the addition of Scherzer. With Jacob deGrom out for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery to repair his elbow ligament reconstruction, Nathan Ivoldi was also lost to injury. With the shortened postseason, the Rangers need a strong pitching staff, which is why they pursued Scherzer so aggressively.바카라사이트

MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, also quoted Texas general manager Chris Young as saying, “Starting pitching is always scarce. Scherzer has the experience to win. I think he’s going to help us get to where we want to be (a championship).”

Texas hasn’t won a World Series since its inception in 1961. Their best finish was an American League title in 2011. Will Scherzer be the final piece of the puzzle to solve Texas’ championship puzzle?
