2. THE LAST WASHINGTON NATIONALS NO-HITTER

2019 was easily the best season in Washington Nationals history. That was the season that they won the World Series for the first and only time in franchise history. Four years earlier the foundation of that team was preparing for that memorable season for the team. On October 3, 2015, Washington beat the New York Mets 2-0 at Citi Field.

The No-Hitter was accomplished by Max Scherzer, who will likely end up in the Hall of Fame one day. He even had 17 strikeouts that game. It was the best performance of any starting pitcher (or any pitcher for that case) on this list. Scherzer is pitching for the Texas Rangers these days, who won the World Series last season.

The funny thing about that 2015 season, is that the New York Mets were the ones who won the pennant. The Nationals ended up missing the playoffs, after making them the previous season. In fact, they actually lost the division to the Mets. You could argue that this was good revenge however, especially as No-Hitters are so memorable in team histories.

Max Scherzer has a career 3.15 ERA/3.17 FIP in 16 seasons. He'll likely be in the Hall of Fame as a member of Washington.
