Player Notes
Max Scherzer struck out 11 and allowed three runs over seven innings in Thursday's 6-4 victory over the Angels.

Advice: He walked one and gave up six hits. Los Angeles nickel-and-dimed three runs out of Scherzer in the fifth inning, but was otherwise baffled by his arsenal. They aren't alone, of course. The right-hander has been flat dealing since his 10-run meltdown against the Royals last month, allowing only 10 earned runs over six starts (he also won the All-Star Game with a scoreless inning during that stretch). Scherzer (12-3, 3.37 ERA) toes the rubber against the White Sox next week.

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.

Advice: 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.

Advice: 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.
