What made this Houdini-act even more impressive was the fact that Scherzer went to a 3-2 count on two of the batters.
Perhaps the most impressive feat of abracadabra was how he came back from down 3-1 to strike out Josh Reddick with no one out.
On the first 3-2 pitch to Reddick, Josh fouled off a 95 MPH four seamer that was over the plate. But on the next pitch, Reddick went down swinging on a 85 MPH change that was slightly inside.
Then with two down, on another 3-2 pitch, Alberto Callaspo lined out to center fielder Austin Jackson on an outside 95 MPH four seamer.
