Scherzer to start Game 1 for Tigers vs Baltimore

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Tigers will start this postseason just like last year's: Max Scherzer in Game 1, Justin Verlander in Game 2.

Manager Brad Ausmus announced the team's rotation for its AL Division Series, which begins Thursday at Baltimore. Scherzer also started Detroit's postseason opener last year, not long before he was voted the American League's Cy Young Award winner. The right-hander went 18-5 with a 3.15 ERA this season.

"He's been our best pitcher," Ausmus said.
