Another week and another no-hitter. Almost perfect game. Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer baffled the Pittsburgh Pirates 26-up, 26-down through the first 8 2/3 innings on Saturday. Then after a hit by pitch (he leaned his elbow in), the 27th out secured the no-no. Ten strikeouts and 106 pitches. This was coming off a complete game shutout with just one hit and one walk. So total over the last two outings. 2-0, 18 IP, 1 H, 1BB, 1 HBP, 26 strikeouts. Some are calling it the best two-game stretch in pitching history. Certainly worthy of the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
