MLB Game Day: Detroit @ Oakland Preview

Detroit will put their faith in pitcher Max Scherzer as they seek to continue the club’s longest winning streak since 1934. Though he has not faced Oakland this season, Scherzer blanked the A’s on May 30, 2010, with 14 strikeouts allowing two earned runs on 10 hits through 5/2/3 innings.

The Athletics are 18 games behind the division-leading Rangers and have already used 26 different pitchers this season. They’ll need to rely on their offense during this four-game series when Coco Crisp is likely to return to the plate and John Willingham works on his impressive count of 91 RBIs.
