The Washington Nationals will not be playing in October, but it didn’t stop Max Scherzer from throwing one of the gems of the season.
Scherzer threw his second no-hitter of the regular season in a 2-0 win over the New York Mets.
The Nationals ace threw a career high 17 strikeouts, on his way to becoming the sixth pitcher in Major League History to throw two no-hitters in one season.
The last pitcher to accomplish the feat was one of the best pitchers in ever, Nolan Ryan in 1973. If including the postseason, Roy Halladay was the most recent to throw two no-hitters.
Scherzer threw his first no-no against the Pittsburgh Pirates on June 20th.
Kudos are in order for Scherzer.
