By the time he gets to Citi Field for the All-Star game next Tuesday, Max Scherzer could own a share of the AL record for consecutive winning decisions to open a season.
The Detroit Tigers' right-hander, though, has a couple of starts before then.
Scherzer will try to become the second pitcher to open 14-0 in the last 27 years Monday night when the AL Central-leading Tigers conclude their four-game series visiting the second-place Cleveland Indians.
There was no surprise Scherzer (13-0, 3.09 ERA) was one of six Tigers named to the All-Star team Saturday, as he's off to a start manager Jim Leyland told the team's official website is "hard to believe." With a career-best sixth consecutive winning start on Wednesday - he allowed two runs in 6 1-3 innings in a 6-2 victory at Toronto - Scherzer became the first pitcher to begin 13-0 since Boston's Roger Clemens opened 14-0 in 1986.
The AL record is 15-0, set by Cleveland's Johnny Allen in 1937 and equaled by...
BEST OF MAXIM
Max Scherzer didn't care that his record stayed spotless. All that mattered to him was that Detroit's improved.
Scherzer remained unbeaten and Victor Martinez hit a two-run double in the 10th inning as the Tigers extended their lead in the AL Central with a 4-2 win over the second-place Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Martinez doubled off Matt Albers (2-1) as the Tigers...
Detroit Tigers: 47-38, 2nd Place (2.5 ahead of Cleveland).
Yes, it’s that time of the season, that 4th of July lull where DTW game threads only draw a couple of comments and places like ESPN resort to discussing topics such as the All-Star game snubs before the teams are actually named. Snub predictions, I guess.
Anyway, despite the lulliness of the week the Tigers are in gear...
There's a reason why last year Miguel Cabrera took home baseball's first Triple Crown in decades and is threatening to do so once again. He flattens baseballs, enough said.
When announcing the MLB All Star teams on Saturday night, ESPN made a bit of a mistake on the AL All Star reserves. Rather than list Torii Hunter of the Detroit Tigers, Torontoii Hunter was listed. No word on Torontoii’s career stats, but I imagine they’re pretty bad. Good job, good effort, ESPN. Perhaps a little proofreading next time?
Torontoii Hunter? Must be a new...
It may just be me, but I thought that baseballs were not supposed to be able to be flattened like this. You have to love the phantom camera when it produces images like this. All evidence would seem to suggest that Miguel Cabrera swings a baseball bat hard.

The Tigers have now taken 7 in a row from the Tribe, and 8-of-10 for the season. The Tigers have already outscored Cleveland 16-4 in this series, and 49-22 over the...
In the bottom of the 5th inning, with a massive 7-1, Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder turned an incredibly strange double play. Cleveland Indians outfielder Drew Stubbs hit a blooper to Prince, which he dropped. The ball was still in fair territory, but base runner Lonnie Chisenhall didn’t run. Prince casually walked over to Chisenhall, tagged him on the leg and...
Max Scherzer, the Detroit Tigers undefeated pitcher, has been named an All-Star for the first time in his career and third baseman Miguel Cabrera was voted in as a starter for the first time.

Still believe Tribe Town?
Awesome Amazingness? More like Abominable Awfulness.
A four run third inning and a three run fourth was more than enough runs for the surging Detroit offense as they took down the Indians 9-4 on Saturday.
