Muchlinski received 37 callable pitches from Scherzer, a total of 23 balls and 14 called strikes. The look:
Balls: 23 called balls outside of strike zone / 0 called balls within strike zone = 23/23 = 100% Accuracy.
Strikes: 10 called strikes inside strike zone / 4 called strikes outside strike zone = 10/14 = <90.0% Accuracy.
Total Raw Accuracy Score = 33/37 = <90.0% Accuracy (+5 for Scherzer).
