Tigers' Scherzer focuses on strike zone, not statistics

Forget the WHIP, curveball out percentage as opposed to throwing a slider and how many strikes a pitcher gets with his fastball on an 0-2 count. Max Scherzer said he thinks about none of the above when he takes the mound, especially against Cleveland and Kansas City in the American League Central. The reigning Cy Young Award winner said getting caught up in numbers can get you an 'L.'

Tigers explode for 7 in 11th to rout Tribe

This was an extremely odd game in that the Tigers scored four runs in the first and seven in the 11th, but were blanked on three hits for nine innings in between — meaning that between the first and 11th, the lead got away from starter Max Scherzer.

White Sox 6, Tigers 3: Sox snap Scherzer skid.

Thanks to a four run 3rd inning, the White Sox beat Max Scherzer for the first time in 2014. It's known that Max Scherzer owns the Chicago White Sox, especially in 2014. Before today's game he was 4-0 with an ERA of 0.96 striking out 31 while walking only 8. Shoot, he had his first complete game shut out of his career against the Sox this season. With the wackiness that comes with late season double headers, Manager Robin Ventura bumped Chris Sale from the nightcap to face off against Scherzer for better results. The anticipation of a pitchers duel was in the air prior to the game...

Max Scherzer had excellent stuff, but a handful of offspeed pitches...
