Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer ended his 2015 regular season with a bang, throwing his second-no hitter of the year Saturday night.
He's only the sixth player in history to throw two no-nos in the same season, joining Roy Halladay, Nolan Ryan, Virgil Trucks, Allie Reynolds and Johnny Vander Meer.
And even more incredibly, Scherzer matched Nolan Ryan's record for most strikeouts in a no-hitter with 17 — a record that stood for 42 years.
