Detroit Tigers scratch one out
If the Tigers can manage to keep winning these low scoring games when the opportunity presents itself, they will be walking away with the American League Central. So much so that they lead the American League in ERA. So it is understandable why the Tigers may struggle on the round against Kansas City hurlers. Max Scherzer earned his ninth win of the year by scattering 3 hits and 2 runs over 7 innings. Mad Max inporves to 9-0, the best start for the Detroit Tigers pitcher since 1938.Detroit Tigers Jersey
Don Kelly continued his clutch hitting with men in scoring position with an RBI single in the bottom of the first. Andy Dirks scored Omar Infante on a hustle play beating a throw by SS Alcides Escobar in the top of the fifth. Victor Martinez broke the 2-2 tie with a sacrifice fly in the top of the eighth. That turned out to be the winning run as Jose Valverde closed it out for his 9th save of the season. Justin Verlander will take the ball against the Royals Jame Shields.
