Max Scherzer scratched from Game 6 start amid dead arm
© Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports Max Scherzer, who was acquired by the Dodgers at the trade deadline, went 7-0 in the regular season with his new team.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will not have their ace on the hill for Game 6 of the NLCS on Saturday.

Max Scherzer has been scratched from his planned start against the Atlanta Braves. Scherzer, as is customary for the upcoming game’s starting pitcher, was supposed to address the media on Friday night after the Dodgers arrived in Atlanta. However, the media session was canceled because Scherzer is not starting.

Scherzer, who was acquired by the Dodgers at the trade deadline, went 7-0 in the regular season with his new team. He pitched in the wild-card game against the Cardinals, Game 3 of the NLCS against the Giants and again in Game 5 when he got his first career save.

On Sunday, Scherzer pitched for the fourth time in 12 days and allowed two runs over 4.1 innings in Game 2 against the Braves. He admitted afterward that he was dealing with a dead arm.

Apparently Scherzer’s fatigue is still an issue, which led to the change.

The Dodgers are slim on options. Walker Buehler pitched in Game 3 on Tuesday. Julio Urias pitched in Game 4 on Wednesday. They went with the bullpen in Game 5. They might have to ask for another heavy game from their bullpen in Game 6.

The Braves lead the series 3-2 and are a win away from the World Series. The Dodgers need to win the next two games to advance.
