Nationals manager Dusty Baker loves to ride his starting pitchers to wins but Wednesday night against the Braves he may have left his ace in too long.

Max Scherzer had thrown 95 pitches through six innings in a 2-2 tie at Nationals Park but Baker decided to send his ace back out for the seventh inning. Sure, Scherzer should be able to mow down the 8-9-1 hitters for a team 13 games below .500, right?

Wrong. Scherzer failed to record an out. He issued four walks and a single in the seventh, an eventual six-run inning that cost the Nationals the game. Scherzer was tagged for seven runs on seven hits with six walks, the most he's issued in a game since 2013.

Why did Baker risk sending out Scherzer for the seventh especially considering the reigning Cy Young Award winner had a high pitch count? Scherzer asked for the extra work and Baker has shown plenty of confidence in his starters to go deep into games.

“I knew it was important for me, going into that start tonight, to be able to get to that level (above 110 pitches). That’s where I showed some rust tonight,” Scherzer told reporters after the game. “This is why I needed to pitch that deep into the game, so I can shake off some of that rust and later in the year here I’m able to be strong all the way through 110 pitches.”

According to teamrankings.com, the Nationals have three of the top-11 pitchers in "pitches per start." Gio Gonzalez is third at 105.4 pitches, Tanner Roark is sixth with 102.5 and Scherzer is 11th with 101.6. Stephen Strasburg is 21st in MLB at 98.7, giving the Nationals four of the top 21 in baseball.
