Scherzer threw 112 pitches over 7 1/3 innings and struck out 10 – the 95th time he reached double-digit Ks.
On the last, Scherzer walked No. 9 hitter Derek Fisher, putting runners on the corners with one out.
Daniel Hudson (1-0), who closed out Houston in Game 7 of the World Series last October, got the job done, with the help of a diving stop and backhanded flip by shortstop Trea Turner that started a 6-4-3 double play Martinez called ”awesome” and ”unbelievable.”
