How Was The Game? (August 3, 2013)

Another pleasure.

Tigers 3, White Sox 0

I’m starting to sound like a broken record stuck on a good song, but the Tigers played another brilliant game. Max Scherzer (22 GS, 151.1 IP, 2.85 ERA, 2.72 FIP, 4.5 WAR) led the way with 7.2 superb innings of 0 run baseball in which he allowed 3 hits and 3 walks but also struck out 6. The Sox couldn’t get anything going against him and he cruised through this one easily and left to a standing ovation. The Tigers’ bats didn’t do a ton, but they made it count when they did getting solo homeruns from Hunter, Peralta, and Iglesias to give Max all he would need. The Tigers have now won 7 straight, 11 of 12, and will look to notched their 3rd consecutive sweep on Sunday behind the very solid Rick Porcello (19 GS, 112.1 IP, 4.49 ERA, 3.52 FIP, 2.0 WAR).

The Moment: Iglesias launches his first HR as a Tiger…and the crowd gets on its feet for Scherzer.
