It was a bittersweet afternoon for Max Scherzer as he was one strike away from completing baseball’s 24th perfect game. After hitting Jose Tabata, Scherzer settled for a no-hitter, getting Josh Harrison to fly out to end the game.
Scherzer struck out 10 batters on the afternoon for his sixth double-digit strikeout game of the season. He’s 8-5 with a 1.76 ERA, a 0.80 WHIP, and a 123/14 K/BB ratio in 102 1/3 innings. Not a bad way to start the first year of a seven-year, $210 million contract.
