When I arrived home from the Bernie Sanders rally (there will hopefully be a column on this Monday) I tuned into the MLB Network to see the Houston Astros-Arizona Diamondbacks game.
Instead, I see Max Scherzer on the mound pitching against the New York Mets with a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the ninth with two outs. It was right then and there I realized that Scherzer was one out away from his second no-hitter of the 2015 season. He got Curtis Granderson to pop out to Yunel Escobar and the Washington Nationals effectively ended their season on a positive note. It doesn't quite make up for missing the post-season, but it is a feel good moment for the team and a triumph for Scherzer. He struck out 17 batters and at one point fanned nine consecutive hitters.
