On The Board
M. Scherzer & W. Ramos (WSH)
Scherzer is the fifth pitcher to throw 2 no-hitters in a season, both could have been perfect games but did not turn out that way due to a hit by pitch in the first game and a throwing error in the second. He struckout 17 batters to tie the mark for a no-hitter, but established the record for the most punchouts without walking anybody. He is the second hurler with 2 no hit-no run games without allowing a base on balls (the only one to do so in a single season). Ramos is the sixteenth backstop to catch 3+ no-hitters and is part of only the third same pitcher-same catcher duo to participate in 2 games where no-hitters were thrown in a single season. The seven games without a hit or a run in 2015 tied the record established in three other campaigns.
