Rays-Tigers Preview 6-6-13

(AP) — A big reason for Max Scherzer’s stellar start is the support he’s received from his teammates – especially at home.

The right-hander tries again to become the first Detroit pitcher in six years to start 8-0 on Thursday when the struggling Tigers face the Tampa Bay Rays.

Scherzer (7-0, 3.42 ERA) appeared set to become the first Tiger since Jeremy Bonderman in 2007 to do so Friday at Baltimore when he allowed three runs, three hits, struck out 10 and left with a 5-3 lead after eight innings. However, closer Jose Valverde gave up four runs, including a walk-off three-run homer with two outs, for a 7-5 loss.
