On Monday, the Angels published a video in which new manager Joe Maddon put on a GoPro and went for a 30-minute bike ride around his neighborhood in Arizona. Maddon discussed a wide range of topics, including what he was doing in 1979, baseball, and music. In a time in which we’re starved for baseball, this is compelling content.
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.
