START­ING PITCH­ERS

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Starter: Max Scherzer, Na­tion­als Oth­ers: Ger­rit Cole, Pi­rates; Johnny Cueto, Reds; Ja­cob de Grom, Mets; Zack Greinke, Dodgers; Shelby Miller, Braves; Michael Wacha, Car­di­nals

Scherzer gets the nod not just be­cause of his 1.94 ERA and league­lead­ing 0.775 WHIP but be­cause he fol­lowed a 16-strike­out one-hitter with a no-hitter. DeGrom (2.30 ERA, 0.965 WHIP) makes it, de­servedly, as the lone Met. Miller (2.20 ERA, 1.075 WHIP) makes it, de­servedly, as the lone Brave.
