In what may have been one of the most exciting sequences in Comerica Park’s relatively brief history, Max Scherzer managed to wiggle out of a bases-loaded, no-out situation Tuesday, preserving the Tigers’ Game 4 lead.
Scherzer walked the leadoff man in the eighth, then allowed a double to Yoenis Cespedes. He then intentionally walked Seth Smith to load the bases. But strikeouts of Josh Reddick and Stephen Vogt, plus a lineout to center by Alberto Callaspo allowed a fired-up Scherzer to get out of trouble.

DETROIT For one night, Max Scherzer, the only 20-game winner in the majors, was coming out of the bullpen to save the day.
And he did so in a very unconventional, Todd Jones-like manner.

The Detroit Tigers are facing elimination on Tuesday in Game 4 of the ALDS against the Oakland Athletics, but despite the importance of this matchup, manager Jim Leyland has opted not to pitch Game 1 winner Max Scherzer.
Instead, Doug Fister has taken the mound with the Tigers’ season on the line.
His last outing against the Athletics at Comerica Park was in August, when he gave...

Baseball's winter trade market will feature a Cy Young winner.
Or two Cy Young winners.
The Rays will almost certainly trade David Price. But there's also a very real chance that the Tigers trade Max Scherzer according to sources.

DETROIT (AP) - On a night of desperation, dispute and finally, delirium, Max Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers kept their season alive by the slimmest of margins.
Justin Verlander pitched the Detroit Tigers into the American League Championship Series with eight shutout innings in a 3-0 win over the Oakland Athletics. “It felt good out there,” said Verlander, who struck out 10. “It’s the first time in a while my changeup’s been really good.
After jumping out to an early 1-0 series lead on Friday behind a strong effort by Max Scherzer, the Detroit Tigers would falter heading into the weekend, dropping both Games 2 and 3 to the Oakland Athletics.
Facing elimination at the start of Tuesday’s match-up in Detroit, the Tigers mustered up the firepower to even the series and force a Game 5, outlasting the Athletics by a...
When the Tigers fell behind the A’s two games to one in the series, they knew they’d need either Max Scherzer or Justin Verlander to pitch well if they were to advance. As it turned out, they needed them both — Scherzer recorded some critical outs in Game 4, and then Verlander recorded a lot more of them in Game 5, starting in what would’ve been Scherzer’s place. For eight...
