NEW YORK – Former La Crosse Loggers pitcher Max Scherzer, now of the Washington Nationals, joined some very elite company last Saturday night when he tossed his second no-hitter of the 2015 season during a Nationals 2-0 victory over the host New York Mets.

The big right-hander become one of only six pitchers in the history of Major League Baseball to toss two no-hitters in the same season and the first to do so since Roy Halladay did it in 2010.

Scherzer struck out 17 batters and one was one error away from throwing a perfect game.  The 17 punchouts matched Nolan Ryan for the most strikeouts in a no-hit effort ever.

Scherzer, an alum of the University of Missouri, was a member of the 2004 La Crosse Loggers and also earned a trip to the Northwoods League All-Star game that summer.
