Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer will have his next scheduled start pushed back to Saturday, according to CSN. Scherzer was initially scheduled to pitch on Wednesday, but he will receive an extra couple of days rest because of the move, which also lines him up to start during the Nationals' upcoming series against the New York Mets.

Scherzer was excellent in Sunday's win against the Orioles, allowing just two runs on four hits with seven strikeotus in 8.2 innings.

The righty was victimized by a pair of solo home runs by Adam Jones, but otherwise limited the O's to a pair of singles. Scherzer lowered his ERA to 2.11 as he earned his 10th win of the season, and will resume his Cy Young caliber campaign after the upcoming All-Star break.

Scherzer turned in his worst outing of the year in a loss to the Reds on Tuesday. He gave up five runs on seven hits while striking out four over 4.2 innings.

Tuesday's outing marked the first time this season Scherzer failed to complete six innings. He had completed at least eight innings in each of his last four turns entering Tuesday. Scherzer got off to a rocky start, giving up two runs on three hits in the first, and he later served up a solo shot to Joey Votto, his third home run allowed to a lefty batter this season. Even with the rough outing, Scherzer still ranks fourth in the NL in ERA (2.12), first in WHIP (0.80) and second in strikeouts (143).
