A Perfect 10!
In an incredible feat accomplished by only one other Tiger in history, Max Scherzer earned his tenth victory Monday night and improved to 10-0 to start off the season. Let’s put that stat into perspective. It is so incredible that George Mullin is the last and only Tiger to have ever accomplished it and that happened way back in 1909! That year, Mullin started off 11-0 and went on to win 29 games for the season.
Max Scherzer: reaching his maximum potential.
Scherzer’s pitching is phenomenal. He is cruising at maximum speed. Could we see the pitching Triple Crown come to Detroit, too? He’s leading the American League in wins, right now, with 10. He’s second in strikeouts, fanning 116. He has a low 3.08 ERA, which puts him ranking twelfth. If he keeps lowering his ERA, he could very well bring the pitching Triple Crown to the D.
His electric stats don’t just stop there. Max Scherzer’s 96.1 innings pitched ranks him 6th in the AL and that proves he is a thoroughbred workhorse capable of going the distance. He has walked only 24 batters all season. This is just another stat that shows how he keeps the game under control. He’s the #1 ace on any other staff in the league. Will there be any stopping this man as he dominates the league this year? Only time will tell. Right now, he is unstoppable. Let’s take a moment to enjoy the success that this man’s hard work has brought to our city and state. Maxwell is smart and he will continue to approach every game like he has so far this season: with a winning attitude and the right mechanics. Max could easily win 20+ games. He just has great “stuff” this year. I think he’ll win 24 games. There is a good chance he’ll lead both the team and the league in victories this season. What do you think?[yop_poll id=”7″]
Congrats on your accomplishment, Max. We Scherz ‘er proud of you!
