He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde. Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York's initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.
The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith's sacrifice fly. Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
