GIFs of the Day: Max Scherzer and Felix Hernandez were dealing last night

Otto Greule Jr

Max Scherzer and Felix Hernandez put on a dazzling display last night, each allowing one run in eight innings of work.

I'm writing this post before the game ends, and I'm not sure I want to update it when it does. Max Scherzer and Felix Hernandez are putting on what will be one of the best pitcher's duels of the season, making both offenses look foolish time and again.

First, Max Scherzer makes Brendan Ryan fear for his life.

Then, Felix throws probably the nastiest swing-back fastball I have ever seen. Poor Prince Fielder.

How good were Max and Felix?

This is baseball at its best.
