DETROIT — Max Scherzer could only watch as the lead, and fourth shot at his 20th win, slipped away. He didn't mind, especially once Alex Avila's second homer of the game put the Tigers ahead again moments later. Avila's tiebreaking shot in the eighth inning bailed out reliever Drew Smyly, who allowed the Royals to tie it at 3 in the top half. "We're just looking to win the game," Scherzer said. "I don't care if I win another game, if we win our division, that's all that matters."
