Tigers 4, Dodgers 1
DETROIT — Max Scherzer pitched seven impressive innings, outdueling Zack Greinke and helping the short-handed Tigers sweep the two-game series. Detroit was without Miguel Cabrera, who was given a day off, and Victor Martinez, who is dealing with a lingering back issue. "Baseball's that type of game," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "Even without your best player, you can go out there and win." The AL Central-leading Tigers scored two in the first against Greinke.
