COMERICA PARK (CBS DETROIT) – If Max Scherzer had not locked up every voteicon1 Scherzer On His Stellar Eighth Inning: ‘That’s The Stuff You Dream Of’ for the American League Cy Young already, he probably converted any remaining doubters with his gutsy performance as a reliever Tuesday.

Scherzer entered the game in the eighth inning, his Detroit Tigers clinging to a 5-4 lead as they tried to avoid elimination from the American League Division Series in Game 4 of their series against the Oakland A’s.

Scherzer walked the first batter, Brandon Moss, and Yoenis Cespedes doubled. With batters on second and third, Scherzer intentionally walked the next batter, Seth Smith, leaving the bases loaded with no outs.
