Max Scherzer had to make an early exit with what the team is describing as shoulder fatigue, Max Scherzer had an M.R.I. and the good news is it didn’t show any structural damage to his shoulder. The Detroit Tigers took his loss serious and pounded the Oakland A’s   12-2 to win their 78th game of the season. The Tigers are still 3 games back of the White Sox in the A.L. Central race.

Detroit had an offense explosion in the game, Miguel Cabrera went 3 for 4 and had 6 R.B.I.’s in the game. When Cabrera hits like that it is hard to stop the Detroit Tigers as the Oaklnad A’s found out. The Tigers need wins, they don’t have the luxury of waiting around, the season is coming down to the last few games and the Tigers have to make a push to the top.

The problem is the White Sox aren’t giving the Tigers any help, they have won their last 5 games and they don’t show any signs of slowing down. The Tigers can only hope they can continue to win and the Sox lose some games coming into the stretch. The season is down to 15 games remaining for Jim Leyland’s Tigers, they would be will suited to win them all and not look back. With the way the White Sox are playing, it could take a solid charge by Detroit to make things interesting….
