During his long, illustrious career, Max Scherzer had never earned an MLB save. But that changed on Thursday night.
In the winner-take-all Game Five against the Giants, LA called on Scherzer to get the final three outs in a one-run game.
The ace delivered – getting Wilmer Flores to strike out for the third out thanks to a controversial check-swing call.
In his 432nd career appearance, Max Scherzer earns his first save to send the @Dodgers to the NLCS.

It would seem likely that the Dodgers will turn to fellow ace Walker Buehler for Game One against the Braves, and have Max Scherzer waiting in the wings for Game Two.
But that wasn’t something Scherzer needed to get into on Thursday night, he was just trying to get hammered.
The Dodgers will be the heavy favorites to take down the Braves and reach the World Series, yet again. In which case, we’ll expect the Max Scherzer celebration to be even more wild.
