MILWAUKEE (AP) — Max Scherzer has pitched six perfect innings for the New York Mets against the Milwaukee Brewers in his return from the injured list Monday night.

Trying for his 200th career win as the NL East-leading Mets look to clinch a playoff spot, the 38-year-old Scherzer has nine strikeouts. He's thrown only 68 pitches, but it appears New York won't let him go any longer in his first start in 16 days.

A smiling Scherzer received a hearty round of high-fives from teammates when he returned to the dugout after the sixth, and Tylor Megill was warming up in the bullpen with the Mets leading 5-0.

The three-time Cy Young Award winner exited his previous start Sept. 3 with fatigue on his left side and went on the IL with oblique irritation. He spent time on the injured list earlier this season with a left oblique strain.

With a victory, New York secures its first postseason berth in six years.

Megill, also just off the injured list Monday, started a combined no-hitter by five Mets pitchers on April 29 against Philadelphia — the second no-no in franchise history. The other one was thrown by Johan Santana on June 1, 2012, against St. Louis.
