Discover: Three for Thursday

Max Scherzer

1. Scherzer’s historic night. Nationals’ ace Max Scherzer tied the Major League record with 20 strikeouts against the Tigers on Wednesday night. @TheBallIsOrange shared a video of all 20 strikeouts, while More Talk, Less Walk agreed with the hurler’s self-assessment of the feat. Dodger Insider looks at some of the greatest strike-throwing performances throughout history, and the overseas fan at The Pastime writes about sleeping through it all.

2. Syndergaard’s power display. Perhaps inspired by Bartolo Colon’s turn as a home run hitter, Noah Syndergaard blasted not one, but two home runs off Kenta Maeda at Dodger Stadium last night, supplying all four of his team’s runs in the process. The Metssiah hailed Syndergaard almost singlehandedly winning the game for the Mets, while 60 Rows Up and Behind a Pole pays graphical tribute. Even as an opposing fan, cat loves the dodgers couldn’t help but be impressed by the display.

3. All-Star voting. Filling out his ballot proved to be a thought-provoking process for The Wayniac Nation, inspiring a pair of blog posts. Cast your 2016 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot, share it in a blog post and tell us why you voted the way you did!
