Max Scherzer looked to be in tip-top shape for the postseason during the Nationals' 3-2 win on Sunday against the Mets. He earned the victory with six innings of one-run ball, striking out 10 batters and allowing just three hits.
It's hardly a shock to see Scherzer pitch well, but perhaps he was given extra motivation by one young fan in the stands. Although he was playing in enemy territory at Citi Field, this kid was there for his idol:
Once Scherzer saw a picture of this fan, he simply had to respond:
There we go! 1 blue 1 brown. Now that's my #1 fan! https://t.co/jaudkvXefp- Max Scherzer (@Max_Scherzer) September 26, 2017
Scherzer has always been a friend to those who also have multi-colored eyes (even dogs), so it's awesome to see him continue these bonds with more fans like this kid. That's a role model, for sure.
