Max Scherzer had what may go down as one of the greatest pitching performances of all-time on Saturday, pitching his second no-hitter this season in a 2-0 win over the Mets.
Scherzer was nearly perfect. He struck out 17, and the lone baserunner came on a throwing error in the sixth. It's the seventh no-no in Nationals franchise history, coming just a few months after Scherzer recorded No. 6, no-hitting the Pirates on June 20.
