Max Scherzer is 19-1 and he’s not slowing down posting a 1.80 ERA over his last three combined starts. He gets a day start to go for win #20 and it is an important one for the Tigers after losing 3 straight to the A’s. Scherzer has a 1.56 ERA in August and a 2.97 ERA over his previous 3 years in August and should be primed to slow down the A’s offense. He’s got much better numbers than Bartolo Colon who peaked and has struggled down the stretch. Scherzer has elite stuff a A’s are ranked 16th and 28th against his two best pitches which are the fastball/slider combination.
Bartolo Colon has not pitched since August 13th and he’s got a 7.82 ERA over his last three starts. He’s really cooled off and that’s what happens when all you do is throw fastballs. His velocity has also slowly declined throughout this season which is huge when you throw 85% of your pitches as fastballs. His true ERA relies in his xFIP which is 4.14. He rarely gets people out himself with just 4.84 K/9 and the Tigers should take advantage as they have a .893 OPS against him in 167 AB including Miguel Cabrera who is 6-13. He also has to go up against Scherzer who the Tigers always seem to hit for and are 41-14 in his last 55 starts.
