2015 No-Hitter 7, Tony Randazzo (1; Max Scherzer)

HP Umpire Tony Randazzo called Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer's no-hitter against the Mets, the seventh of 2015, and Scherzer's second of the season. Randazzo was joined for Game 2 of Saturday's Nationals-Mets doubleheader by 1B Umpire Jim Wolf, 2B Umpire and Crew Chief Gerry Davis, and 3B Sean Barber. This is Randazzo's first career MLB no-hitter; regular crewmate Phil Cuzzi, who had the plate for Game 1 of the twin-bill, called the most recent no-hitter amongst the crew, Phillies P Cole Hamels' no-no against the Cubs on July 25, 2015.

Saturday's is the first MLB no-hitter since August 30, 2015, CHC-LAD (Pat Hoberg; Jake Arrieta).

Randazzo received 49 callable pitches from Scherzer, a total of 29 balls and 20 called strikes. The look:

Balls: 28 called balls outside of strike zone / 1 called ball within strike zone = 28/29 = 96.6% Accuracy.
Strikes: 18 called strikes inside strike zone / 2 called strikes outside strike zone = 18/20 = 90.0% Accuracy.
Total Raw Accuracy Score = 46/49 = 93.9% Accuracy (+1 for Scherzer).
