• White Sox deny Scherzer's bid for 20th win

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Sep 9, 2013
    The two White Sox runs in the bottom half off Max Scherzer, who had given up just seven first-inning runs all season, probably suggested worse. By the time Scherzer left the mound after four innings, flummoxed by an infield single from No. 9 hitter Josh Phegley that turned into a two runs on Scherzer's throwing error, the feeling was unmistakable. It just so happens that Scherzer pitches on a better team, helping him get to 19 wins and the unofficial title of Cy Young favorite, while Sale picked up just his 11th victory in the opener of a three-game set. One candidate features a 3.01 ERA and has allowed a mere 139 hits over 194 1/3 innings following the White Sox 5-1 victory over the Tigers on Monday night at U.S. Cellular Field. The first-inning exit from Miguel Cabrera, three pitches into his at-bat after a few words for plate umpire Brian Gorman, wasn't a good sign for the Tigers' evening in the Windy City.
