Angels 2 - Tigers 5A day after posting 11 runs on 10 extra base hits, Angels batters were stifled by Tigers starter Max Scherzer who allowed just one run — a J.B. Shuck solo blast to start the game — on three hits while striking out nine Halos over seven innings. Albert Pujols accounted for the the Angels’ second run with his 498th career home run in the top of the ninth.Click...
DETROIT (AP) -- Max Scherzer gave Detroit's beleaguered bullpen a bit of a breather.
Scherzer struck out nine in seven innings -- fanning Mike Trout three times in the process -- and the Detroit Tigers finally managed to beat the Los Angeles Angels, 5-2 on Saturday.
Detroit had dropped 10 straight to the Angels, including an 11-6 loss the previous night in which Los Angeles battered...

Detroit had lost 10 straight to the Angels and hadn't beaten them since Aug. 26, 2012. The Tigers snapped that skid behind a sharp outing by Scherzer and home runs from Nick Castellanos and Victor Martinez.

We need to get Kelly back in the lineup. This Cabrera guy is killing us.
Chase Headley was wearing his stone glove again, and that lent a wee bit of excitement to the top of the 9th, but otherwise, if you saw the 4th, you saw the game. Tigers had momentum, Max Scherzer gave it right back.
Scherzer had a better day at the...
SAN DIEGO (AP) Tyson Ross outdueled AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer, and Jedd Gyorko and Xavier Nady homered as the San Diego Padres beat the Detroit Tigers 5-1 on Sunday to take two of three.
It’s the first rubber game of 2014, and hopefully it will satisfy our rubber soul, as the Tigers (6-3) make another day trip to San Diego (4-7) and then get their ticket to ride back home for a day off and then the Cleveland Indians. Max Scherzer will face Tyson Wood.

Raise your hand if you got burned by Justin Masterson's last two starts. If you detect a touch of Old Spice deodorant and bitterness that's because I've got both of my arms straight up in the air on this one. Bet you're wondering how I can still type. That's a trade secret Sky taught me. I haven't been this mad at an Indian since I caught my neighbor Joe Charboneau...
Yep, it would be easy to blame the shabby outing from No. 5 starter Bruce Chen, and the subsequent shaky effort from the Royals' bullpen.
But the truth is, the Royals' pitiful offense once again let them down.
The Royals justifiably can point to their early-season offensive struggles after having faced studs such as Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Chris Sale, Matt Moore and...
Max Scherzer (ND) struck out 8 in 7 innings
The Detroit Tigers opened up interleague play on Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers in a potential World Series matchup.
The Dodgers took the first of a two-game series, beating Detroit 3-2 in the tenth inning.

The Tigers played a good team on the road and came up on the losing end of a tight game. They fought hard with a good start from reigning Cy Young winner Max Scherzer and a late rally, but it simply wasn't enough to get by the Dodgers on Tuesday. Staff writer Nick Shlain has the recap.
If there was ever a time for me to do a post that was literally just a GIF and nothing else, it would be this. Dee Gordon hit a homer. In the big leagues. Off Max Scherzer! In a game the Dodgers won by one run. And it wasn’t cheap:
I know. I know! As I said on Twitter, Gordon has more homers than the entire Kansas City Royals. I said that barely an hour ago. It has over...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Carl Crawford hit an RBI double in the 10th inning, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
The Tigers were down to their final out in the ninth when Victor Martinez got Max Scherzer off the hook with an RBI single against Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen -- who had just struck out two-time AL MVP Miguel Cabrera ...
Fueled by an offensive outburst from veteran Torii Hunter that featured a home run and five RBI’s, the Detroit Tigers withstood a late rally from the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday to earn a 7-6 victory over the visitors, and with the win, are now baseball’s only undefeated club at 4-0. After a 93-69 finish led to a third consecutive American League Central crown a year ago, the...
Max Scherzer became the second Cy Young winner on Detroit's staff in 2013, though it was Tigers teammate Anibal Sanchez who finished with the AL's best ERA.
If you’re a destination person — never mind the journey, in other words — you’re happy the Tigers are 2-0.
Nothing matters more than that: They are 2-0.
But if you’re more into how the Tigers have gotten there and how the ride has gone, there’s been plenty of scenery, even more in Game 2 than the opener.
The bottom-line similarity the first two games is they’ve both...
Another day and another walkoff for the Detroit Tigers. Ian Kinsler provided the offense and reigning Cy Young award winner Max Scherzer held the Royals lineup down for eight shutout innings. Staff writer Nick Shlain is clearly the good luck charm.
Max Scherzer did something in his first start that he did not do in his entire Cy Young season. Think he’s pitching for those extra two years on his future contract?
Max Scherzer never threw 8 scoreless innings in his Cy Young season. Nice 1st start to '14 (after a rocky 1st inning) (H/T @aarongleeman)

DETROIT -- Two very odd things happened Wednesday afternoon at Comerica Park.
Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer, who nearly led the American League in run support last season, threw eight shutout innings and didn't figure in the decision in a 2-1 win over the Kansas City Royals that took 10 innings.
And Tigers closer Joe Nathan, who had converted all 36 save opportunities against...
DETROIT -- Ian Kinsler homered and drove in the winning run with a single in the 10th inning to lift the Detroit Tigers over the Kansas City Royals 2-1 on Wednesday.
Max Scherzer pitched eight scoreless innings for the Tigers, but Joe Nathan blew his first save chance since signing with Detroit in the offseason.
