Tigers Have A Shot To Give Owner What He Wants

LARRY LAGE,AP Sports Writer

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit right-hander Max Scherzer says the Tigers are peaking.

The AL Central division champions won eight of their last 10 games while the Chicago White Sox slumped, putting Detroit in the postseason in consecutive years for the first time since 1934-35.

Scherzer says the Tigers believe in their talent and he’s confident they’re as good as any team in the American League. First, Detroit will have to be better than the AL West-champion Oakland Athletics.

The Tigers will host the first of two games Saturday night in before the five-game series shifts to Oakland. Detroit might be tough to beat with Triple Crown slugger Miguel Cabrera at the plate and reigning AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander on the mound.
