Which MLB Players Have Had Multi-Homer Games Against Max Scherzer?

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.

After Scherzer signed a lucrative contract to join the New York Mets in 2021, I looked up his home run log to see if there were any players with these special bragging rights against both Scherzer and new teammate Jacob deGrom. 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.
