Max Scherzer Becomes First Pitcher Since 1986 To Start Season 13-0

CBSSPORTS.COM – Tigers starting pitcher Max Scherzer worked 6 1/3 strong innings for the Tigers Wednesday night, allowing two earned runs and striking out eight.

And his team provided him with six runs in support, so he picked up the 6-2 victory. And he’s now 13-0.

This means Scherzer is the first person since 1986 to start the season 13-0, when Roger Clemens pulled it off. Clemens started 14-0 that year.

He would go on to win the AL Cy Young and MVP awards that season after going 24-4 and leading the league in ERA and WHIP.
