RIVERDALE, N.Y. (AP) Anthony Mayo was one of three Stony Brook players with eight points to help the Seawolves edge Manhattan 50-44 Tuesday in nonconference play.
Jameel Warney and Scott King also had eight points while Dave Coley chipped in seven for the Seawolves, who are off to the best 13-game start in their Division I history.
Stony Brook (9-4) shot a porous 24 percent (6 of 25) from the field in the first half but took a 21-19 advantage into halftime as Manhattan made just 5 of 17 shots during the frame.
Manhattan (3-9) opened the second half on a 16-8 run to take a 35-29 lead but Stony Brook, which got scoring contributions from all but two players, outscored the Jaspers 21-9 over the final 10 minutes.
Rhamel Brown led Manhattan with 15 points and Mohamed Koita had 11 but the Jaspers got just nine points off the bench.
It's no secret that Max Scherzer has been having the best month of his career. As whispers of a fourth Cy Young begin following his commanding starts this season, Nationals GM Mike Rizzo joined the chorus.
"We're seeing something from a major league pitcher that we’re very fortunate because we get to see this every fifth day and this is historical stuff," Rizzo said on The Sports Junkies Wednesday. "This is one of the great pitchers of our time and a hall of fame caliber guy and a guy who leaves it on the mound each and every day."
To add to his dominant June, Scherzer allowed only one run and recorded 10 strikeouts over eight innings in the Nationals' 6-1 win over the Miami Marlins Tuesday night.
"He wills himself to win and he wills himself to go the extra inning, the extra pitch," Rizzo said.
Many are calling Scherzer's consistent greatness this month the most dominant time of his career. According to NBC Sports Washington's Todd Dybas, the only month in his career that comes close to his June 2019 dominance is June 2017, when Scherzer boasted a 0.99 ERA, pitched 36 ⅓ innings, recorded 51 strikeouts, six walks, and a 0.55 WHIP. This June, Scherzer has more strikeouts and a lower ERA.
"He's one of the best pitchers in the league," Rizzo said. "Day in and day out, start in and start out, he gives you an opportunity to win, he gives you his best, he leaves everything on the mound each and every time."
Scherzer has one more start left this month against the Detroit Tigers, the three-day series in Detroit beginning Friday. Until then, Scherzer can rest his arm with two remaining games in the three-game series with the Marlins Wednesday and Thursday at 7:10 p.m.
