Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer celebrates Missouri’s victory with a little sweatshirt signage

Detroit Tigers pitcher Matt Scherzer had the score of Missouri's 41-26 victory at No. 7 Georgia on his sweatshirt Saturday when he took questions from reporters prior to the start of the American League Championship Series in Boston.

Scherzer, an AL CY Young Award candidate this season, is a Missouri Hall of Famer who was the first player from the school to be drafted in the first round in 2005.

Scherzer met with the media not long after Missouri earned its first victory over a top-10 team on the road since 1981. Yet, the score on his sweatshirt looked almost professionally affixed to his shirt. Stickers maybe?

Regardless, always fun to see a guy showing love for his school and his roots. Scherzer is scheduled to start Game 2 of the ALCS on Sunday. Scherzer used his Twitter account to celebrate the Missouri victory.

MIZ!!!! Boom!!!!
