We can throw all sorts of crazy stats at you. But sometimes it’s better to just witness greatness for yourself.
Here’s Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer throwing exactly nine pitches in the top of the sixth inning Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Rays. All nine were strikes, resulting in three strikeouts and an uber-rare “immaculate inning.”
Nine pitches, nine strikes.
That’s immaculate stuff from @Max_Scherzer. pic.twitter.com/92N71YjTbY
