The Nationals ace did so Friday in a 2-1 win against the New York Mets at First Date Field in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
"He's nasty, in a good way. He's really, really good," Tebow told the New York Daily News. "He's first pitch was a backdoor slider, a really good pitch. The second pitch was a fastball. I felt like I could put a good swing on it, but he's got so much movement and it stays true. Then he throws another backdoor cutter 0-2."
"He's got a lot of really good pitches. It's awesome to see one of the best in the league."
Tebow is hitting .143 through three games, going 1-for-7 at the plate so far. He sat out several games due to a sprained ankle.
His only hit this spring came in the fourth inning Friday when he laced a single to left center against Erick Fedde.
"I've been really comfortable," Tebow told MLB.com. "I think I'm getting more comfortable every at-bat."
Tebow also struck out last season against Scherzer at spring training, going down in less than 30 seconds.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has said Tebow will get big-league at-bats at some point. A Mets source told the Daily News that Tebow's opportunity could come as early as September.
