Tigers win sixth straigh with 2-0 victory over Houston
(DETROIT) – Max Scherzer is pitching so well, he's tough to beat. The Detroit Tigers are pretty good, too, at the plate and in the field. Scherzer pitched three-hit ball and struck out nine over eight innings, leading Detroit past the Houston Astros 2-0 Monday night for its season-high sixth straight victory. The reigning Cy Young Award winner will get credit for the win, but acknowledged he had plenty of help. Alex Avila threw out three runners. Austin Jackson sprinted toward the center field wall to catch a deep drive. Andrew Romine perfectly placed a bunt down the third base line to put Nick Castellanos in scoring position for Rajai Davis. Davis broke a scoreless tie with an RBI single in the seventh inning. Victor Martinez hit a solo homer in the eighth inning and Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his sixth save in eight chances for the AL-leading Tigers. Scherzer (4-1) earned his fourth straight win. He has struck out at least seven in each of his seven starts this season, the only pitcher to pull off that feat in franchise history and the first for any team since San Francisco's Tim Lincecum in 2010.

White Sox beat Cubs 3-1 in 12 innings
(CHICAGO) – Marcus Semien simply tried to stay calm and collect himself as he stepped to the plate with the Chicago White Sox threatening to take the lead. Then, he delivered. Semien hit a tiebreaking RBI double in a two-run 12th, Jose Quintana pitched one-hit ball over seven innings, and the White Sox beat the Cubs 3-1 at Wrigley Field on Monday night. Quintana and five relievers combined on a four-hitter, and the White Sox came away with the win after dropping four straight and six of seven to their crosstown rivals. The Cubs lost even though Jeff Samardzija pitched three-hit ball over nine innings. He remained winless despite coming up big on the mound and delivering at the plate, coming through with the lone hit off Quintana and scoring the Cubs' lone run. Rick Grimm (1-1) took the loss for the Cubs while Daniel Webb (3-0) struck out the lone batter he faced for the win.
