Scherzer Helps Tigers Beat Red Sox 7-3

BOSTON (AP) — Max Scherzer pitched into the seventh inning, Delmon Young homered and the Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 7-3 on Thursday night to avoid a four-game series sweep.

Scherzer (5-3) retired nine consecutive batters before departing after a leadoff walk by Nick Punto in the seventh. He allowed three runs and seven hits in his third consecutive victory, closing out a strong May.

Young hit a solo drive in the eighth to make it 5-3, then added a run-scoring single in the ninth.
