DETROIT (AP) — Max Scherzer struck out eight in seven impressive innings and the Detroit Tigers took advantage of Ricky Romero's wildness in a 5-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.
Romero (8-11) lost his 10th straight decision, allowing five runs, seven hits and eight walks in 5 1-3 innings. He didn't strike out a batter.
Austin Jackson had three hits, and Scherzer (13-6) was sharp for the Tigers. Scherzer allowed five hits, including Edwin Encarnacion's solo homer. He walked two.
Detroit needed three relievers to get through the eighth, when the Blue Jays scored two runs. Jose Valverde then pitched the ninth for his 24th save in 28 chances.
Valverde allowed two baserunners but eventually struck out Encarnacion to end it.
Meanwhile....Detroit right-hander Doug Fister has been experiencing tightness in his right groin and is not sure if he'll make his next start.
Fister is 7-8 with a 3.67 ERA this year, and he already missed time around the beginning of the season with a side strain.
Fister says he started noticing a problem while warming up for his last start, Sunday against Baltimore. He pitched anyway, allowing seven runs in 3 2-3 innings.
He says the injury doesn't affect his ability to push off the rubber, and it didn't get worse during the game. It wasn't too alarming at the time, but it's still giving him trouble.
Trainer Kevin Rand said Tuesday an MRI showed Fister has an adductor strain.
