When We Last Met The Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins split a four game series in mid-August, and the losses on both sides were very ugly. Tigers pitching was struggling and the bull pen was not solid and frankly the Tigers seemed lucky to leave Minnesota with a split.
Starting Pitching Max Scherzer(16-5, 3.19 ERA) went six and two thirds innings in his last start against the Kansas City Royals and was the winning pitcher after giving up one run on seven hits and an uncharacteristic four walks. He struck out six. Scherzer is 8-2 with a 4.48 ERA against the Minnesota Twins. Anthony Swarzak(3-1, 3.95 ERA) is 2-2 with a 5.14 ERA against the Detroit Tigers in his career.
