Pic of the Week

Max Scherzer's 20-strikeout game in graphic form.

Pretty impressive game Wednesday by Max Scherzer against his old team, the Detroit Tigers. He struck out 20, as you probably know; as you probably also know, that ties the major league record for a nine-inning game.

That's impressive enough. But here's what gets me: He threw 119 pitches, and 96 of them were strikes.

For the Tigers, it might as well have been 96 Tears.
