New York Mets ace Max Scherzer left in the sixth inning of Wednesday night’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals with pain in his left side, taking himself out with a four-run lead.

The three-time Cy Young Award winner plans to get an MRI today. He said after the game, “I don’t think this is a major strain. I was kind of tight and then all of a sudden it went. But I don’t feel like I really ripped it. . . . So hopefully I got out of there quick enough to prevent a major injury[.]” The Mets won 11-4.
