“It’s just rosin” Scherzer was unfair, ‘Nemo 5 hits, 2 RBIs’ Mets LAD come-from-behind

New York Mets ace Max Scherzer was ejected for allegedly using illegal substances.

Scherzer took the mound in an away game against the Los Angeles Dodgers held at Dodger Stadium on the 20th (Korean time) and was ejected before pitching in the 4th inning for foreign matter on his glove.

Scherzer had his first test before pitching in the second inning, 안전놀이터and there were no problems. And when he came to the mound in the third inning, the referee asked to change his glove to another one, and Scherzer, who accepted this, put on a new glove and finished the third inning with a three-way offense.

And when he got on the mound to pitch in the fourth inning, the umpire inspected his glove again. However, an argument erupted between the umpire and Scherzer, and Mets manager Buck Showalter intervened. A few minutes later, head of the referee Phil Cousey ordered Scherzer to leave.

A TV relay camera caught Scherzer protesting to Judge Coogee, “That’s rosin (rosin powder). It’s just rosin.” Regarding the foreign substance on the glove, the referees had a different opinion.

Even during the Washington Nationals in 2021, when Scherzer was stopped for attaching a foreign substance to his hat, he threw his hat on the ground in front of the referees, and even pretended to unfasten and take off the belt under his uniform and protested harshly. It came after then-opponent Philadelphia Phillies manager Joe Girardi asked the umpire to inspect Scherzer’s hat. At the time, a big fight broke out between coach Girardi and Scherzer between the dugouts of both teams.

Scherzer was blocking well with 1 hit, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts and no runs through 3 innings. After giving up one hit and two walks in the bottom of the first inning, Scherzer got over the crisis by striking out Jason Heyward on a swing and catching Miguel Vargas on a third baseman grounder.

However, the Mets came from behind to win 5-3 despite Scherzer’s early defeat.

The Dodgers scored first with David Peralta’s sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fourth, but the Mets overturned the game with Brandon Nemo’s two-run home run in the top of the fifth. In the 8th inning, Tommy Pham’s sacrifice fly to right field from 1 out, 2nd and 3rd base widened the score to 3-1.

However, the Dodgers, after Freddie Freeman walked after one out in the bottom of the 8th inning, advanced to second base with the opponent’s wild throw, and JD Martinez scored a double from the left at the right time to catch up with the Dodgers by one point.

However, the Mets added two runs on Mark Kanha’s double in the top of the ninth to put a wedge in the game. After one death, Luis Guillaume’s walk and Nemo’s left-handed hit created a chance for first and second bases, and Kanha hit a double from the left side, bringing in both runners.

Dodgers starter Noah Syndergaard pitched well with 5 hits and 2 runs in 6 innings, but suffered a loss. 3 losses without a win in 4 games of the season, ERA 4.91.

The Dodgers recorded 9 wins and 10 losses, and the winning rate fell below 50% again. Still second in the NL West. The Mets remained in second place in the NL East with a record of 12-7.
