Or was it Max-nificent?
Scherzer got into a little fifth inning jam on Monday night, putting two on with no out. He then struck out Manny Machado and Nick Markakis. But after Adam Jones reached on a weak infield single, the stage was set for a little showdown with Chris Davis, who leads all of baseball in dingers and hit one earlier in the game.
Scherzer hit 98 just off (on?) the black a couple times and then finally got Davis flailing on a tailing 97 MPH. Scherzer showed some emotion.
Scherzer is currently in line to be the first Tigers pitcher EVER to start a season 10-0. He struck out 10 in 6 innings, an absolute blue collar gem.
