Max Scherzer Becomes First Pitcher Since Nolan Ryan In 1973 To Throw Two No-Hitters In Same Regular Season

Max Scherzer, who in June came within an out of a perfect game and sandwiched that no-hitter with a one-hitter and five more perfect innings, no-hit the Mets tonight en route to becoming the first hurler since Nolan Ryan in 1973 to hold two teams hitless in the same regular season. »10/03/15 9:31pmYesterday 9:31pm

Kevin Kiermaier Delivers 100 MPH Fastball From Center Field To Nail Runner

You don’t need MLB’s Statcast to understand that this is a great throw from Rays’ center fielder Kevin Kiermaier; that much is apparent by the ease with which he throws out the foolish runner. But it is pretty cool to see that his throw clocked in at 100.4 MPH—a speed that only a dozen or so pitchers hit—while being… »10/01/15 11:19pmThursday 11:19pm

Aaron Rodgers Moving Around Is Its Own Kind Of Highlight

Watching Aaron Rodgers play quarterback is the most satisfying experience that the NFL currently has to offer, so we’re gonna go ahead and keep throwing confetti on him on a regular basis. We’ve been over his arm strength and ridiculous accuracy, but last night’s performance was all about that other thing he does… »9/29/15 1:34pmTuesday 1:34pm

Uriah Hall Nails Spinning Back Kick In Outstanding Display Of Violence

Someday, when he’s an old man, Uriah Hall is going to remember the time he hit a spinning back kick-to-flying knee combination on Gegard Mousasi at the Saitama Super Arena and feel all warm inside. (Mousasi will also remember this when he is an old man, though he will presumably feel somewhat differently about it.) As… »9/27/15 9:55am9/27/15 9:55am

Fresno State Scores Touchdown On Play We Don't Entirely Understand

What you see here is Fresno State’s Jamire Jordan scoring a touchdown to narrow San Jose State’s lead over the Bulldogs. But exactly what play this is, or what it is supposed to look like, we’re completely lost. Is it supposed to be a pass play? Did guys forget to block? Is it a completely broken and improvised mess? »9/27/15 1:24am9/27/15 1:24am

TCU Avoids Embarrassing Texas Tech Loss With Miracle TD Catch

Trevone Boykin found Aaron Green off a ricochet to help the third-ranked TCU Horned Frogs beat Texas Tech 55-52 in the sort of manic game Red Raiders fans have seen in Lubbock for about a decade now. The fourth down play with less than a minute left came and the end of a 53-yard, two-and-a-half minute drive. But Texas… »9/26/15 8:53pm9/26/15 8:53pm

Virginia Tech Punter Makes Save Of The Year

This is an astounding play. Virginia Tech punter A.J. Hughes watches the snap fly far over his head into the end zone, and he manages to not only recover the ball but get a clean punt off that traveled 60 yards on the fly. It kept the Hokies within a touchdown of ECU, and left ESPN’s Mark Neely grasping for words. »9/26/15 5:48pm9/26/15 5:48pm

Amara Darboh Celebrates U.S. Citizenship With One-Handed Circus Catch

Amara Darboh and his family fled the civil war in Sierra Leone when he was two years old, and after four years of moving across West Africa, he was eventually taken in by a family in Iowa. Both of his parents were killed in the fighting, and The Ann Arbor News has the definitive profile on him, which is worth your… »9/26/15 12:51pm9/26/15 12:51pm

Nationals Cannot Stop Beating Selves, Allow Inside-The-Park Grand Slam

The Nationals really have no one to blame but themselves for probably losing their way out of a chance at the playoffs, and this play from tonight’s game against the 57-96 Phillies is a great example. Here’s Aaron Altherr driving home all three baserunners and himself thanks to a misplayed ball by Michael Taylor. It’s… »9/25/15 8:20pm9/25/15 8:20pm

Bournemouth's Matt Ritchie Hammers Home One Of The Season's Most Astounding Goals

Not content to let Callum Wilson have all the glory, AFC Bournemouth’s Matt Ritchie delivered this mind-altering strike to put his side up 2-0 against a hapless Sunderland side today. We feel pretty confident that this will stand up as one of the Premiership season’s best goals. »9/19/15 10:33am9/19/15 10:33am
