Scherzer on arm: “After that third inning, it didn’t loosen up”

Max Scherzer started Game 2 of the NLCS for the Dodgers and revealed that his arm wasn’t at full strength. Scherzer pitched four innings and notched seven strikeouts, but mentioned that his arm was becoming a problem in the third inning.

“Once you pass pitch 45, sometimes it kind of loosens up and you’re able to get deeper into a game. But after that third inning, it didn’t loosen up. It was more tightening up. So I can tell that my pitch count was going to be limited and I wasn’t going to be able to truly get deep into a game.¬†After the fourth inning, I was like hey if this is a long inning, you’re gonna have to pull me. If it’s a quick inning, I can go back out there.”

“I would just say my arm was dead,” says Scherzer.
