(CLEVELAND) — It was just another night on the mound for Max Scherzer.
Scherzer gave up two runs over seven innings for his 17th win of the season, and the Tigers rolled to their 12th-straight victory after dismantling the Cleveland Indians 10-3 on Thursday night.
Miguel Cabrera drove in three runs for the Tigers, who have now opened up a seven-game lead over the Indians in the AL Central.
“We came out here and played as good a four-game series that we played all year,” Scherzer said. “Everybody played their best. All the starters, all the hitters, the relievers. Everybody did their jobs.”
Zach McAllister (4-7) took the loss for the Indians after allowing six runs in 2 1/3 innings. It was his shortest start of the season.
Scherzer is the first pitcher to win 17 games this season.
