Max Scherzer will be taking the mound after gutting out the ninth inning of LA’s win over the San Francisco Giants in Game 5 of the NLDS. He’s on two days rest and threw 13 pitches in that inning, which he came into on short rest as well. Let’s see if the Braves can get to Scherzer early or whether he keeps his dominant form going.
