Searing Fastball Sets Scherzer Apart

Will Kimmey -

Max Scherzer's sensational sophomore season turned him into one of the nation's elite pitchers and prospects. He limited opponents to a .163 average, which ranked second in the country among starters, and led the Big 12 Conference with 131 strikeouts in 106 innings. Scherzer finished the year 9-4, 1.86 and then watched the honors pile up: Big 12 pitcher of the year, second-team All-American, Team USA starter.
