Scherzer joins elite company with 300th strikeout

Nationals ace Max Scherzer recorded his 300th strikeout of the season Tuesday night, becoming the 17th pitcher since 1900 and the fifth since 2000 to reach the milestone.

Chalk up another milestone for Max Scherzer. The Nats ace whiffed Marlins rookie Austin Dean for his 300th strikeout. Scherzer becomes the 17th pitcher since 1900 to rack up 300 K's in a season, and the fifth since 2000, joining Randy Johnson, Curt Schilling, Clayton Kershaw, and Chris Sale. He's also a lock to lead his league in punchouts for a fourth straight season. In the divisional era, only Johnson and Nolan Ryan have done that.

Bryce Harper has finally hit the century mark. Harper collected his 100th RBI with a sacrifice fly against Miami Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara. It's the first time in his seven-year career that he's reached triple digits in ribbies. Harper's previous best RBI total came during his 2015 MVP season, when he drove in 99 runs in 153 games. Oddly enough, heading into Monday's game against Miami, Harper had driven in...99 runs in 153 games.
