1. Scherzer. Two-time defending Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer is well on his way to challenging for a third straight honor as he takes the mound at Camden Yards for Wednesday’s series finale. Scherzer leads the majors in wins and ranks second in strikeouts (108), fourth in opponents’ batting average (.180), fifth in ERA and fifth in WHIP (0.91). He’ll be looking to rebound from his worst start of the season in which he allowed four runs in six innings but beat the Miami Marlins anyway. Before that, he had a 1.78 ERA through 10 starts. Just three Orioles enter the game batting above .200 in their careers against Scherzer — Adam Jones (.412, four homers), Chris Davis (.313) and Danny Valencia (.250).
