It was quite an encore.
It was nearly perfect.
Scherzer (8-5) was an out away from a perfect game, but hit Jose Tabata on the elbow with a pitch with two outs in the ninth. The fireballer then induced a game-ending flyout to left off the bat of Josh Harrison to complete the fifth no-hitter in the history of the franchise. It's the second one since the team relocated to Washington.
