The University of Missouri football team pull off an upset when they shocked No. 7 Georgia in Athens on Saturday, and one of the university’s biggest sports alums showed his support shortly after the game. Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer is a member of the MU hall of Fame and was the Big 12 Pitcher of the Year back in 2005. Very shortly after Scherzer’s Tigers pulled off the upset, the right-hander had a press conference ahead of Game 1 of the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox. Scherzer wore a sweatshirt to the press conference that had the Mizzou-Georgia football score emblazoned on the right side to show his support. Check out a photo of the quick-turnaround piece below.

Max Scherzer puts score of Missouri's big win on his shirt

Just because Max Scherzer is busy trying to help send the Detroit Tigers to another World Series appearance doesn’t mean he isn’t busy paying attention to college football. Scherzer is a Missouri Tigers alum, and the university had their biggest…Read more →

Max Scherzer displays Missouri pride with football score on hoodie (Video)

Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer had twice as many reasons to be happy Saturday night. Not only did his Tigers win Game 1 of the ALCS, but his alma mater, the Missouri Tigers pulled off a huge upset on the gridiron with a 41-26 victory over Georgia. Scherzer also grew up in Missouri, so he proudly showed his support for the team with a sticker with the final score of the Missouri...

Detroit Tigers: Pitching is key in ALCS, but bats need to come alive

They say legends are born in October. One was born Saturday night as Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez threw six innings of no-hit baseball and tallied 12 strikeouts. But he wasn’t the only legend that was born. After he left the game in the sixth due to a high pitch count, the Tigers bullpen, who had been in question all year, took the team no-hitter into the ninth inning. In the...

Photo: Current, Former Tiger Max Scherzer Wears Score Of Mizzou-Georgia Game To ALCS Presser

Once a Tiger, always a Tiger — that rings especially true for MLB pitcher Max Scherzer. Scherzer formerly attended The University of Missouri, and today for his press conference before the Detroit Tigers’ first ALCS game, he decided to brag a little bit about the big football win over Georgia: #MIZ RT @CaseyJ_WOODTV: Max Scherzer on the #ALCS stage & wears the score of the...

Scherzer blocks World Series path

One victory to reach the World Series. And all that's in Boston's way is 21-game winner Max Scherzer, with Justin Verlander on deck for a seventh game - if it gets that far. ''We all know what we are up against,'' Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said on Friday after an offday workout to prepare for Game 6 of the AL championship series against the Detroit...

David Ortiz Reaffirms Status as the Baddest Mofo on the Planet

For a while, game two of the ALCS was looking a lot like game one. The Tigers’ starter — this time, Max Scherzer — was dealing. The Sox bats were flailing. Frustration was mounting. And the hits just weren’t coming. In fact, the Sox went hitless until the bottom of the sixth. Ths situation was exacerbated by an uncharacteristic *********** by Clay Buchholz, who gave up five...

And the ALCS winner will be ...

It's easy to envision the Detroit Tigers winning the American League Championship Series. Heck, if right-handers Anibal Sanchez, Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander pitch to their abilities, the series might not even be close. Much has been made of the Boston Red Sox's transformation in character, and the Sox are indeed a tough-minded group. But the Tigers possess similar...

Boston Wins! Boston Wins! Boston Wins!

Game Two of the ALCS is a perfect example of why baseball is great. Lots of sports like to claim that teams are never out until the final whistle/out/whatever. Sports fans know all too well how untrue that is--but in baseball it certainly is. Your browser does not support iframes. After a masterful game by Detroit pitcher Max Scherzer (7 innings, 13 Ks, 1 ER) the game seemed...

Carp & Gomes Start Tonight Against Scherzer

Red Sox manager John Farrell is making some adjustments for tonight's Game Two against Max Scherzer. Mike Carp will start at first base and Jonny Gomes will be in left. Both Mike Napoli and Daniel Nava—a combined 2 for 23 against Scherzer—will sit. Clay Buchholz will try to avoid a scenario where Boston goes to Motown down 0-2 and facing Justin Verlander in Game Three.

Tigers forget Game 2, focus on home stand

DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers have done the math. They have home-field advantage in a best-of-five series for the American League pennant, and they have Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez and Max Scherzer pitching in four of the five games. Those are the starters who just set a major-league record by taking no-hitters into the sixth inning of three straight postseason games. Would...

ResuscitationNation: Papi Slam Leads To 6-5 Win

(Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images)They were down for the count. They were lifeless. They had spotted Max Scherzer a 5-0 lead—and he had 13 strikeouts. It was looking like an 0-2 series deficit staring down the barrel of a Game Three against Justin Verlander. Then, still down 5-1 in the eighth, the revival began. A one-out double by Will Middlebrooks started it all, followed by a...

Game 2013. Playoffs 8: Red Sox at Tigers

ALCS: Detroit 1, Boston 1. ALCS Game 2: Boston 6, Detroit 5. Painful. The loss Sunday night is one game I will not review in its entirety. During the regular season, there was at least one (Toronto 8, Detroit 6) and probably a couple other games I forget where a sizable lead vanished and left us with a kicked in the gut feeling. Those games pale by comparison. I will focus on the...

Tigers' Alex Avila gets in on act on offense, but it goes for naught

He slammed a long home run over the bullpen and into the seats in right. He drilled an RBI single that got the Tigers their first run on a night when Max Scherzer pitched as if one run might be enough as it was for the Tigers Saturday. And he was inches from David Ortiz’s bat when it blasted into Joaquin Benoit’s first pitch in the eighth inning Sunday night driving the ball...
