Detroit Tigers SP Max Scherzer allowed a run and five hits over seven innings with a walk and six strikeouts in a win Wednesday, July 30, against the Chicago White Sox. He is unbeaten over his past seven starts. Since allowing 10 runs in a loss against the Kansas City Royals June 17, Scherzer is 5-0 with a 2.08 ERA in seven starts, and he is the first American League pitcher to reach 13 wins.
Fantasy Tip: Scherzer is also 4-0 with a 0.96 ERA in four starts against Chicago this season, striking out 31 batters over 28 innings. The good news for Scherzer and his fantasy owners, the White Sox face the Tigers at U.S. Cellular Field for a four-game set from Aug. 29-Aug. 31, so it is likely he faces them again. The two teams will also meet for a three-game set from Sept. 22-24.
