Scherzer's complete game leads Tigers to 4-0 win over ChiSox

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) - Max Scherzer tossed a three-hitter in his first career complete game, and Victor Martinez hit his 16th homer to lead the Detroit Tigers a 4-0 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.

Scherzer (8-2) was back in his 2013 Cy Young form, striking out eight and walking three while outdueling Chicago starter Chris Sale (5-1). Only three times did the White Sox have men in scoring position.

Sale was nearly as sharp as Scherzer. He struck out 10 - all swinging - to match a season high and allowed five hits in seven innings.

Martinez hit a solo shot into the left field bullpen to lead off the fifth and Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs for Detroit. Bryan Holiday drove in an insurance run in the ninth.
