Watch Max Scherzer's record-tying 20 strikeouts in 20 seconds

May 12, 2016

Washington Nationals starter Max Scherzer made mincemeat of his former Detroit Tigers teammates on Wednesday, tying the record for strikeouts in a single game with 20.  

In the past calendar year, Scherzer has thrown two no-hitters (June 20, 2015 and October 3, 2015) and now this. For an encore, maybe a perfect game or a two-home-run game a la Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard, who accomplished the feat on Wednesday night as well.
