Max Scherzer SP DET 4 Days

Max Scherzer was nearly scratched from Saturday's start after his neck tightened up on him while he warmed up in the bullpen prior to the game.

He wound up allowing two runs on six hits and four walks over 5 2/3 innings against the Indians. Scherzer expects to be fine for his next outing. "I've got five days to take care of this," said Scherzer, who described it as a neck spasm. "This is just a one-day thing. We've got great trainers and we'll have a program for what I'm going to do over the next five days to take care of it."

Max Scherzer was credited with the victory in Tuesday's All-Star Game after striking out a pair in a scoreless inning.

After starting last year's All-Star Game, Scherzer picked up the win a year later. He just happened to enter the game at the right time, as his scoreless fifth inning started a string of seven straight scoreless appearances for AL relievers. Chris Sale, who was credited the win in last year's Midsummer Classic, was one of two AL pitchers to be scored upon.

Max Scherzer struck out seven while tossing seven frames of one-run ball in Wednesday's 4-1 victory over the Dodgers.

He permitted just four his and walked a pair. The only tally the Dodgers were able to get off of Scherzer was an unlikely one, as Miguel Rojas jumped on a high fastball in the fifth inning for his first career home run. Scherzer has been dynamite since his 10-run meltdown against the Royals last month, allowing just five runs over his last four starts. He finishes the first half with a 3.35 ERA with 146 strikeouts over 126 1/3 innings.

Max Scherzer struck out 13 batters over seven innings Saturday in the Tigers' defeat of the Astros.

Houston plated two runs in the bottom of the first inning but Scherzer locked in soon after that and guided the Tigers to their 44th win in 77 games this season. Scherzer was left with a no-decision, however, because Detroit didn't grab the lead until the ninth inning. The right-hander will carry a 9-3 record, 3.64 ERA, and 1.25 WHIP into his next scheduled start at home against the Rays.

Max Scherzer was hit early and often in Tuesday's loss to the Royals, allowing 10 runs on 10 hits in four innings of work.

The right-hander allowed two home runs in a seven-run second inning en route to the most runs Scherzer has allowed in a start in his career. The loss dropped him to 8-3, and his ERA rose from 3.05 to 3.84 in the start. Still, it was nothing more than a speed bump for the 29-year-old. Look for him to rebound at the Indians on Sunday.

Scherzer, though, was able to survive, mostly due to his nine strikeouts. It was his first win in four starts since the last time he faced Boston (he outdueled Lester in a 1-0 game on May 16).
