Los Angeles Dodgers ace Max Scherzer, who said Sunday that his "arm was dead," was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series at Atlanta, multiple media outlets reported Friday night. The Braves, who lead the best-of-seven series 3-2, beat Scherzer in Game 2, when he allowed two runs on four hits in 4 1/3 innings. The right-hander struck out seven and walked one while throwing 79 pitches.
