Max Scherzer downed 26 Pirates in order today but failed to achieve baseball’s 24th perfect game when he hit Pirates pinch-hitter Jose Tabata with a pitch on a 2-2 count. Scherzer struck out 10 in the 6-0 Nationals victory in Washington, just days after earning a game score that was among the best in history. Oh, and…
The story of Jose Tabata and his 43-year-old wife is the gift that keeps on giving. Today's episode: She apparently told the 20-year-old outfielder that the baby she (allegedly) abducted was his.
Well, this is just what the Pirates needed. The wife of one of their top minor league prospects is being questioned in the apparent kidnapping of a baby from a Plant City, Fla. health clinic.
