Player Notes
Max Scherzer recovered from a three-run first to hold the Rays to four runs in seven innings on Tuesday.

Advice: It was briefly five runs, but Vince Belnome's first major league homer was overturned on replay. Scherzer finished the night with nine strikeouts, pushing him over 200 for the third straight year. He's at 205 right now, and he's well on his way to eclipsing last year's total of 240.

Max Scherzer blanked the Pirates for eight innings, striking out 14, to earn his 14th win Thursday.

Advice: Scherzer struck out 14 for the third time in his career, falling one K short of his career high of 15, also against the Pirates, on May 20, 2012. He was also the fifth pitcher to strike out at least 14 in a game this season. Interestingly, he came back out for the eighth at 108 pitches in this one. A week ago, there was much controversy after he was taken out after 106 pitches in a 2-1 game going to the ninth. Joe Nathan blew the lead in that one, and the Tigers lost in extra innings. Scherzer ended up at 121 pitches today, the first time this year and seventh time ever that he's hit the 120 mark. The Tigers turned a 2-0 lead into a 5-0 lead in the bottom of the eighth and won 5-2 after Phil Coke gave up a homer in the ninth.
