Scherzer finished with a one-hitter and 16 strikeouts in the Washington Nationals' shutout of the Brewers. From Todd Rosiak of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
- "After breaking up Max Scherzer’s perfect game with a broken-bat flare to right to lead off the bottom of the seventh in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Washington Nationals, Milwaukee Brewers centerfielder Carlos Gomez was somewhat disappointed. In his eyes, the most legitimate way to end a pitcher’s bid at history is with a solidly struck ball. 'He pitched a really good game today, and I can say I don’t enjoy that base hit in the seventh,' said Gomez, who wound up with the only hit against Scherzer. 'It’s what I think. You know, everybody’s different. He’s still throwing a really good game. I’m happy for him."
