Max Scherzer Has 9 Ks As Tigers Beat Angels 5-1

LARRY LAGE,AP Sports Writer

DETROIT (AP) — Max Scherzer struck out nine and got plenty of run support as Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila homered to help the Detroit Tigers beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-1 Thursday.

Detroit won the four-game series and has 10 victories in its last 12 games. The Angels have won just five of their last 13 games.

Scherzer (9-5) gave up only one run — on Mike Trout’s homer in the sixth inning — three hits and four walks over seven innings.

Jerome Williams (6-7) allowed five runs and nine hits over six-plus innings. Williams has lost five straight starts for the first time in his career.
