Well, the Tigers didn’t put up 14 runs today, but they didn’t have to thanks to Max Scherzer. Scherzer allowed a single run to a powerful Dodgers lineup. The Tigers, without both Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez, were able to plate four runs thanks to some timely hitting and aggressive base running. After giving up […]
Max Scherzer again went (only) six innings against the White Sox, but the bullpen actually did its job this time around, only allowing one run through 3 innings.
