What To Make Of The Yankees’ Replacement Starters

A remarkable thing happened in the first week of August. The New York Yankees took three of four games from a Detroit Tigers team that now boasts about as good a starting rotation as we’ve ever seen, at least on paper. Following their deadline acquisition of former Rays ace David Price, the Tigers can now roll out a rotation featuring Max Scherzer (2013 Cy Young winner), Price...

Just How Rare Is a 14-Strikeout Start?

Yesterday, Max Scherzer and Mike Fiers each struck out 14 batters in their respective starts against the Pirates and Cubs. When such a thing happens, there’s a danger in concluding that this sort of thing must not be special, and that it happens all the time. The wiser among us — and me — know […]

Max Scherzer fans season-high 14 as Detroit defeats Pittsburgh

For the second straight start, Max Scherzer was nearly flawless for eight innings. Only this time, Detroit's bullpen didn't spoil the win for him. Scherzer became the first 14-game winner in the American League this season, striking out a season-high 14 and pitching the Tigers past the Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-2, on Thursday. It was the second straight victory for the Tigers...

The Fiers that could burn during Milwaukee’s postseason run

Mike Fiers must have some nasty ****. In today’s 6-2 Brewers victory at Wrigley Field, Mike Fiers struck out 14 Cubs in six innings. This has to go down as one of the most impressive pitching performances of the season, and I can’t wait to see the BBREF game score with how it stacks up to Max Scherzer’s 14 strikeout performance on the same afternoon against the Pittsburgh Pirates...

Tigers 5, Pirates 2

This was more of how I think most expected this series to go – before the Pirates got pretty lucky and didn’t have to face elite Detroit starting pitching in the first three games (Verlander doesn’t count since he was clearly off his game/possibly injured). The Bucs did have to deal with one legit ace in Max Scherzer, and he absolutely dominated them to lead the Tigers to a...

Scherzer’s 14 K’s Leads Tigers Past Pirates

With a team struggling, and a bullpen with more questions than answers, the Tigers leaned on one of the aces of their pitching staff to put them in a position to win. Max Scherzer came out yesterday and did what you would expect out of the reigning CY Young winner by striking out 14 batters, allowing only three hits and no runs, in 8 strong innings. He was backed by an offense that...

Game 121: Tigers 5 Pirates 2

It’s getting difficult to write about the Pirates with Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker still out of the lineup, because every day is some variation on, “Well, what can you really do?” We’ve seen this script a few times before in the last week and a half; Francisco Liriano pitched pretty well, but the offense was anemic against Max Scherzer and the bullpen and defense did...

J.D. Martinez flashes power and glove for Tigers

DETROIT -- Left fielder J.D. Martinez did it all for the Detroit Tigers on Thursday afternoon, flashing both his glove and power to help beat the Pittsburgh Pirates. He made what winning pitcher Max Scherzer called the play of the game, and also had the biggest hit in a 5-2 win. His leadoff homer in the fifth inning broke up Francisco Liriano's no-hitter. "That homer was...

An afternoon finale in Detroit

After avoiding much of Detroit’s vaunted rotation for 75% of this series (the 2014 version of Justin Verlander is not exactly what I’d call intimidating), the Pirates will match up with Max Scherzer at 1:08 this afternoon in Comerica. The Pirates will counter with Francisco Liriano, who’s been really excellent in his last five starts. Before the game, the Pirates announced...

Justin Verlander’s MRI shows ‘no major structural damage’

An MRI revealed no structural damage. “Really, there was no major structural damage,” manager Brad Ausmus said. “At this point, we don’t expect him to go on the DL. We’re still kind of evaluating what the treatment options are, but there’s a possibility...

Yankees End Homestand On Low Note Before Heading To Baltimore

If Yankees fans had been asked last Sunday if they would be happy with a 4-3 seven day stretch by the team, most would have said they would sign up for it. Facing the last three AL Cy Young winners (Max Scherzer, David Price and Justin Verlander) with Rick Porcello and his Cy Young contending season thrown in for good measure, it was looking like a tough stretch for the Bronx...
