The Los Angeles Dodgers hit three early home runs off Carlos Carrasco and beat the New York Mets 14-4 on Sunday night baseball. The defense was a little sloppy behind Max Scherzer's second start in a Dodger uniform but still got the job done.
Dave Roberts during and after the game shares a hilarious moment involving Max Scherzer when he returns back to the dugout.
"Did he just say 'don't effing touch me?" said Roberts while relaying the story on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball broadcast from Citi Field. "Then I got the scoop from our players - 'hey doc, make sure you don't touch him [Scherzer], he doesn't want anybody to touch him.'"
"After the game, he goes seven, and I go 'hey man, did you just mumble something like don't effing touch me?" Roberts said. "And he [Scherzer] goes 'yeah, and I gave you the tempered, most respectful way I could say it, because this is my job. I don't need any kind of congratulations or support. That's my job.' So tonight, I won't be patting him on the butt."
Dodgers swept the New York Mets and remain four games back of the San Francisco Giants in the NL West. The Dodgers start a three game series vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates.
