Nationals starter Max Scherzer didn't need much help on his way to making some history on Tuesday night. Scherzer reached 250 strikeouts for the fourth consecutive season when he fanned Gohara in the third. The righty went seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits to pick up his 15th win. The Braves' offense put up a valiant effort against Scherzer. Kurt Suzuki drove in the Braves' first run after a 10-pitch at-bat that saw him foul off a couple of tough sliders.
A big key to Scherzer's success has been his strong combination of his two-seam fastball and slider. He uses the slider to run inside to left-handed hitters, allowing him to balance his pitching arsenal. Scherzer currently ranks first in the National League in strikeouts, ahead of Jacob deGrom, who has 228.

"I am going up there looking for my pitch," Reyes said. "When I get a good pitch, I am putting a good swing on the ball. The good thing is that I have been taking walks to help me see the ball really good." On Sunday against the Braves, Reyes continued his hot streak with a RBI triple in the first inning to help the Mets ride to a 5-1 victory at SunTrust Park. He finished 1-for-4 and moved past Darryl Strawberry into second place on the club's all-time extra-base-hit list, with 470.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
