Wait... what inning is it again?
You see, the big league pitcher totally forgot what inning it was. (See kiddos, it even happens to the big leaguers, too!)
Fortunately for the Nationals, Scherzer wasn't pitching. And better still, he wasn't even in the game at the time of his brain malfunction.
“And he’s coming home. There’s the winning run,” Scherzer said calmly, “We win . . .”
“And,” he said mockingly, “it’s the eighth inning.”
