Analysis: How Tigers fare against right-handed pitchers is trend worth watching in 2014

The Tigers dont have a ton of left-handed hitters to run out there on a regular basis. SAN DIEGO -- There is a big difference from one season to the next when it comes to how much run support a pitcher gets. Of course, it was a bit of a fluke how many runs the Detroit Tigers scored for Max Scherzer in 2013. The numbers he had more control over -- the 2.90 ERA, the 240 strikeouts and the 0.97 WHIP -- helped him win the American League Cy Young Award. But his 21-3 record was helped immensely by the run support he received from his teammates. Through three games...

Padres 5, Tigers 1: First Series Win Comes Against Cy Young Winner

Padres 5, Tigers 1: First Series Win Comes Against Cy Young Winner

2013 American League Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer is glad he won't be seeing the Padres again any time soon. The Tigers starter struck out 10 batters, but that didn't keep them from scoring 4 runs off the ace before chasing him off the mound after 5 innings. Tyson Ross, on the other hand, seemed to have solved the troubles plaguing him in his first two starts. He went 7 innings, allowing just one run on 6 hits and a walk. Jedd Gyorko was the first batter to get a piece of Scherzer, and it was one big piece. The Mountaineer hit a monster shot deep into left field in the bottom of the...

Hare n' Tigers Dan Haren (1-0, 0.00) vs. Max Scherzer (0-0, 0.00) It's April 8th, so it must be Interleague Play!!! (Yeah, still not used to that.) With our own reigning Cy Young winner on the shelf, it's up to Dan Haren to take on AL CY winner Max Scherzer (of nightmare-fueling bobblehead fame). It's not as lopsided a match as one might think. Neither has allowed an earned run this season. Haren has a win and Scherzer doesn't. Suck on THAT, Max! SMALL SAMPLE SIZES AND ANTIQUATED PITCHER STATS RULE!!!! Can the Dodgers lineup follow up Sunday's home run derby with something reasonably...

Tigers in NL parks: Scherzer first up as pitchers get to bat

'The biggest thing is feeling the strike zone,' said pitcher Max Scherzer, who will have to bat because the Tigers will play by NL rules. 'Obviously, first thing is getting the bunts down. That's the first thing I've got to work at. And start feeling where the strike zone is. I haven't had a competitive at-bat in a year.'
