DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera homered twice, including an eighth-inning grand slam and the Detroit Tigers had no trouble overcoming an early injury to right-hander Max Scherzer in a 12-2 rout of the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night.
Cabrera matched a career high with six RBIs and now has 40 homers on the season — also a career best. Prince Fielder and Jhonny Peralta added home runs for the Tigers, who were three games behind the first-place Chicago White Sox in the AL Central coming into the night.
Scherzer left after two innings because of a fatigued throwing shoulder. An MRI showed no structural damage.
Darin Downs (2-1) pitched 2 2-3 scoreless innings for the win.
Oakland rookie A.J. Griffin (6-1) lost for the first time in his career.
Detroit Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer was lifted from Tuesday night's start against Oakland after only two innings because of a fatigued throwing shoulder.
He's scheduled to have an MRI.
Scherzer, who has been brilliant of late, allowed a run and two hits, striking out four. He'd thrown only 44 pitches when left-hander Darin Downs came on from the bullpen to start the third.
Detroit led 2-1 when he Scherzer left.
Scherzer entered the game with a 16-6 record and a 3.77 ERA, as well as a major league-leading 220 strikeouts.
Detroit trails the first-place Chicago White Sox by three games in the AL Central.
