    The Tigers beat the Angels 6-4, as Scherzer struck out 11 batters in seven innings. "When I falter a bit, they come back and pick me up," Scherzer said after Thursday's 6-4 Tigers victory over the Angels moved him back into a tie for the Major League lead in victories. Nick Castellanos drove in the tying and go-ahead runs with a double in the sixth inning and Max Scherzer won his fourth straight decision, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 6-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night. Los Angeles Angels pitcher Garrett Richards has been one of the breakout pitchers of the 2014 season, but as his matchup Thursday night against Max Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers showed us, there's a reason Scherzer is the reigning Cy Young winner and every pitcher in the AL is trying to dethrone him. ''Richards is a great pitcher and he's been having an awesome year, so you know you have to bring your 'A' game,'' Scherzer said. Scherzer, the winning pitcher in the All-Star game, is 4-0 with a 2.21 ERA in six starts since giving up 10 runs over four innings in an 11-4 home loss to Kansas City on June 17. Joba Chamberlain gave up a run on Josh Hamilton's sacrifice fly in the eighth. But right-hander and still closer Joe Nathan struck out the side in the ninth for his 21st save in 26 chances a day after the Tigers acquired closer Joakim Soria from the Texas Rangers.
