Mets RHP Max Scherzer Ejected on Wednesday Against Dodgers After Sticky Substance Check
Mets RHP Max Scherzer was ejected from Wednesday’s game against the Dodgers after a sticky substance check. Scherzer was checked ahead of the third inning, and the umpire made him switch gloves — much to the dismay of Scherzer. Then, coming into the fourth inning, Scherzer was checked again, and was visibly upset with the umpire. The umpire ultimately decided enough was enough, and ejected Scherzer from the ball game.
Here’s a video of the ejection:
Scherzer was adamant that he had rosin on his glove, however, the umpires weren’t happy, and decided to throw him out of the game. I’m not sure if he was ejected because of the sticky stuff or because of the arguing, but whatever the case, he’s out of the game in the fourth inning.
The Mets are forced to go to the bullpen, while Scherzer’s return to Dodger Stadium ends early.
Obviously, from a baseball perspective, this is a huge advantage for the Dodgers, as Scherzer was dealing through three scoreless innings.
We’ll continue to provide updates when we know the exact reasoning for the ejection but, for now, Scherzer is gone, and the Dodgers are getting set to face the Mets bullpen the rest of the way.
