Max Scherzer returns to the big leagues with a completely, utterly insane 14 strikeouts in 5.2 innings. I really don’t even know what to say. Who throws 100+ pitches so quickly that they are unable to finish a full six innings, but at the same time pitches well enough to give up no runs whatsoever and also strike out 14 dudes? Tigers pitchers, apparently.
Like, seriously. You guys. Fourteen Ks. Five point two innings.
I just… nope. I got nothin’. So here’s Max Scherzer riding a tiger K back to Detroit. That’s all I can really think to ‘say’.
