Max Scherzer

1. Scherzer’s historic night. Nationals’ ace Max Scherzer tied the Major League record with 20 strikeouts against the Tigers on Wednesday night. @TheBallIsOrange shared a video of all 20 strikeouts, while More Talk, Less Walk agreed with the hurler’s self-assessment of the feat. Dodger Insider looks at some of the greatest strike-throwing performances throughout history, and the overseas fan at The Pastime writes about sleeping through it all.

2. Syndergaard’s power display. Perhaps inspired by Bartolo Colon’s turn as a home run hitter, Noah Syndergaard blasted not one, but two home runs off Kenta Maeda at Dodger Stadium last night, supplying all four of his team’s runs in the process.

Matt also maximized the multimedia capabilities of his blog by embedding the MLB.com video clip of the home run. If you aren’t doing that yet, here’s a quick run-through of how to do it. (more…)
