The Cardinals had some uninvited guests in their dugout last night at Dodger Stadium. Let’s just go to the video tape, which looks like the start of a comedy skit. I promise you it isn’t…

The skunks didn’t bother the Cardinals at all. Carlos Martinez struck out 11 batters over seven innings of one-run ball as part of a 2-1 victory over the Dodgers. You just know that “Rally Skunks” will somehow become a thing.
WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.
He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.
Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.
The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.
Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
