Washington Nationals ace pitcher Max Scherzer coming off a one-hit shutout, made the next step with a no-hitter in a 6-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

It was the Washington Nationals second no-hitter in its history.

His no-hitter joins that of  San Francisco Giants rookie Chris Hesson, who no-hit the New York Mets on June 9 at Citi Field.

The 30-year-old right-hander, was dominating in recording 26 outs pitching a perfect game up to that point.

With the Pirates’ Jose Tabata at the plate and two strikes, Scherzer hit him with a pitch. Most radio and TV reports and replays showed that Tabata, a right-handed batter was leaning out over the plate to get hit with the pitch.

The next batter was the same batter who led off the game with an out, Josh Harrison. Harrison flied out to left field to end the game and send the crowd of 41,104 fans at Nationals Park home happy knowing they witnessed a historical moment.

Scherzer, who is almost always pitch-efficient in his starts, only threw 15 pitches after two innings. For the complete game effort, he threw 106 pitches, 82 for strikes.

He finished with 10 strikeouts and improves his record to 8-5 on the season.

Losing pitcher for the Pirates was lefty Francisco Liriano, who is often the victim of lack of run support. He drops to 4-6.

The National League Central Division race is a dogfight between the Reds and Cardinals.

But let’s not forget about the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Pirates reached 15 wins in the month of April for the first time since 1992 after their 9-0 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Pittsburgh rookie pitcher Jeff Locke allowed three hits in seven innings. His performance allowed the pirates to move into first place in the National League Central with a record of 15-10.

Locke, now 3-1, has pitched 13 scoreless innings in his last two starts.

Radio, TV reports say Reds, Ludwick agree to 2-year deal pending physical

 

There are reports on radio, television and the internet reporting that the Cincinnati Reds and outfielder Ryan Ludwick have agreed to a two-year, $15-million deal pending completion of a physical.

Ludwick signed a bargain-basement one-year, $2-million contract with Cincinnati in 2012 and emerged as the club’s regular left fielder and one of its most potent hitters to go along with Brandon Phillips, Joey Votto, Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier.

After struggling with the San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates in 2011, the 34-year-old Ludwick, had a bounce-back season in 2012 where he hit .275 with 26 home runs and 80 RBIs to help Cincinnati win the National League Central Division title.

He has played 10 Major League seasons with the Rangers, Indians, Cardinals, Padres, Pirates and Reds and is a .263 career hitter with 143 homers, 530 runs batted in and 850 base hits.

Max Scherzer became the first Detroit Tigers pitcher in 40 years to strikeout 15 batters in a game.

He accomplished the feat on Sunday in a 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

All of Scherzer’s 15 strikeouts were of the swinging variety. The only other pitcher since 1988 to strike out at least 15, all swinging in a game was the Houston Astros’ Mike Scott against the Cincinnati Reds on June 8, 1990, according to STATS LLC.

Lefthander Mickey Lolich struck out 15 for the Tigers back in 1972 and set the franchise record of 16 in 1969.

Detroit Tigers ace pitcher Justin Verlander pitched a terrific game at Comerica Park on Friday night.

The 29-year-old righthander came within two outs of his third no-hitter, allowing only one hit, Josh Harrison’s ninth-inning single in a 6-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Entering the ninth inning, Verlander had only thrown 95 pitches. He got ahead of Harrison with 1 out and a 1-2 breaking ball which was hit for a soft liner up the middle which shortstop Jhonny Peralta could not get to.

Verlander, now 5-1 on the season, threw the sixth career shutout, his 16th complete game and the 51st straight regular-season start where he pitched at least six innings.

The 29-year-old Virginia native, the 2011 American League MVP and Cy Young Award winner, has a career record of 112-58 with a 3.47 ERA and 1,283 strikeouts.

Verlander has two no-hitters in his career: June 12, 2007 against Milwaukee and May 7, 2011 vs. Toronto.
