Mets’ Max Scherzer stayed ‘locked in’ during rain delay

ATLANTA — Max Scherzer wasn’t going to let his mind wander after the tarp was dragged onto the field during the third inning Wednesday.

Unsure if he would get to pitch again, Scherzer remained in the tunnel leading to the visitor’s dugout at Truist Park and focused on the potential task ahead.

After a 34-minute rain delay, Scherzer resumed pitching. Overall he lasted 6 ¹/₃ innings and allowed four earned runs on three hits and three walks with eight strikeouts in the Mets’ 9-7 victory over the Braves.
