Scherzer’s Nationals teammate Stephen Strasburg finished third in the balloting.

Kershaw was the last pitcher to win back-to-back Cy Young Awards in 2012 and 2013. Scherzer is also the 10th pitcher, who has won three or more Cy Young Awards.

Scherzer had a 2.51 ERA and led the NL with 268 strikeouts. The 33-year-old went 16-6 in 31 starts with two complete games. He also allowed 55 walks in 200 2/3 innings.
