Scherzer was charged with six runs (five earned) on nine hits, with 11 strikeouts versus zero walks over 6.2 innings, in a loss to the White Sox in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader.
The reigning AL Cy Young winner has now given up 12 earned runs in his last three outings (18.2 innings), raising his ERA close to 30 points over that span (from 2.98 to 3.26). Scherzer's still missing bats at a good clip, but he may have a hard time getting back on track in his next scheduled start, Thursday at Cleveland. The Indians have gotten to Scherzer for 10 earned runs on 24 hits in 18.2 innings so far this season (three starts).
