Tigers 8, Rays 6 (11): Scherzer overcomes early troubles, offense battles past blown lead in extras

Max Scherzer got into trouble early on but settled in to give the Tigers a solid outing. The Tigers offense battled well, taking the team into extras as a result of bullpen antics, lifting the Tigers to victory. The Tigers desperately needed to get their road trip off to a good start. It wasn't perfect and the bullpen reared its ugly head once again, but the offense battled with good at-bats and clean defense to give the Tigers a 8-6 win over the Rays in 11 innings. It wasn't looking good for Scherzer, who got off to a rocky start. He gave up three runs in the first inning and another in...

Tigers 5, Pirates 2: Max Scherzer strikes out 14 (!!) to give Tigers second straight win

Max Scherzer tallied 14 strikeouts, holding the Pirates scoreless through eight innings as J.D. Martinez and Nick Castellanos each had a field day at the plate. DETROIT — The Tigers defense almost got a day off with Max Scherzer on the mound as he pitched eight shutout innings against the Pirates. The offense woke up mid-game, helped in part by the Pirates defensive blunders, and as a result the Tigers won 5-2 to take a split on the home-home series. Scherzer got the day started out by striking out the side in the first two innings. By the fifth, he had 11 and when the eighth came...

Max Scherzer defends Brad Ausmus' decision to pull him after eight innings: 'I emptied the tank'

Max Scherzer told reporters after the game Saturday that Tigers manager Brad Ausmus made the right call in lifting him from the game. In his own words, he said he was done. TORONTO -- Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has drawn a lot of heat from fans who questioned why he didn't bring Max Scherzer back out in the ninth inning Saturday. It's a fair question, considering Scherzer had thrown only 106 pitches through eight innings and needed just eight pitches to retire the side in order in his final inning of work. But Scherzer told reporters after the game Saturday -- an...

Blue Jays 3, Tigers 2 (10): Joe Nathan blows save opportunity after Max Scherzer's dominant performance

Max Scherzer went eight strong innings and struck out 11, holding the Blue Jays to just one run, but Joe Nathan came out in the ninth and blew it up. A combination of low scoring early on and a blown ninth inning by Joe Nathan sent the Tigers and the Blue Jays into extra innings. Another injury prompted a scrambling in the bullpen and as a result, the Tigers lost 3-2 in the 10th and Max Scherzer was denied his 14th win of the season for the second consecutive time. Scherzer absolutely dominated the Blue Jays through eight innings, striking out 11 and allowing just four hits, but as has...
