Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer leads active MLB pitchers with 3,020 career strikeouts over 14 seasons. The future Hall of Famer secured his legacy by winning the 2019 World Series with the Washington Nationals. Any hitter with a multi-homer game against this veteran ace has special bragging rights.

There are no players with multi-homer games against both Mets aces, but the list of players with multi-homer games against Scherzer is a star-studded collection of past and present MLB players.
