Max Scherzer, Tigers Overcome All Odds to Force Game 5
The Detroit Tigers were dead in the water and were then saved by one of Tony Bosch’s favorite clients. Then they were dead again and were once again snatched from the jaws of defeat by the best pitcher in baseball. And now, Detroit has all the momentum as the ALDS shifts back to Oakland for a winner-take-all Game 5.
Max Scherzer, the likely AL Cy Young award winner, was called from the bullpen to keep his team’s season alive in the seventh inning and he didn’t disappoint. The Tigers battled back from two separate deficits and then needed super pitching to keep the Oakland A’s at bay (no pun intended), and Scherzer struck out two batters and somehow escaped a bases loaded situation to ensure his team’s season would see at least one more game.
The best part is Scherzer got the win, Jhonny Peralta is back in good graces with Detroit and the Tigers now have a ton of momentum heading into Game 5, which seems all but set up for a win to send them to the ALCS. But if Game 4 of the ALDS taught us anything, it’s to never count out these squads in this wide open season. And it’s safe to say the best is yet to come.
