Pitching matchup



Tigers: RHP Max Scherzer (6-1, 2.59 ERA)

Scherzer is coming off his worst start this season, allowing 12 hits and seven runs in seven innings at Cleveland. He has a career 4.20 ERA against the A's and hasn't pitched beyond the sixth inning in his last three starts against them.



Athletics: RHP Sonny Gray (5-1, 1.99 ERA)

Gray trimmed his ERA to 1.99 on Thursday, but it wasn't enough to earn his sixth win of the season, despite limiting the Rays to one run over eight innings in a tough-luck loss. He gave up five hits, walked two and fanned three.

PREVIEW


Marquee matchup awaits as A's, Tigers continue series
Detroit ace Scherzer faces Oakland phenom Gray in pitching showdown

By Matt Slovin / MLB.com | 5/26/2014 7:55 PM ET

The most exciting pitching matchup of this week's four-game set between the Tigers and Athletics will come Tuesday night as Max Scherzer opposes Sonny Gray.

"It will be fun," Gray said. "It's a series that both teams want to win. You can look at it as being important to both teams."

Scherzer said his primary focus will be on the Oakland lineup, though he's aware he will be countered by the budding ace of the A's staff.

"It will be interesting to see how he attacks our lineup," Scherzer said. "I haven't seen him too much. I saw him pitch in the playoffs and I know he has a good curveball."

Scherzer's start comes on the heels of his worst outing of the season, in which he allowed 12 hits and seven runs in seven innings of work at Cleveland. That's longer than he's lasted in his last three starts against Oakland.

"Oakland is well rounded," said Scherzer, who has a 4.20 ERA against the A's for his career. "They have guys who get base, guys who can steal, and they hit for power. They have a little bit of everything; they challenge you."

Monday afternoon, the two teams met up for their first game since the 2013 ALDS, when the Tigers eliminated the A's in a decisive Game 5. Leading up to the matinee, which the A's won convincingly, 10-0, both teams had to fly across the country -- Detroit from home and Oakland from Toronto.

Tigers shortstop Andrew Romine said the travel schedule, which has them playing six series in as many cities, "has been weird."

"It seems like we're playing more day games than night games," Romine said. "We know we're a good team, we just have to get back to doing what we do best."

Tigers: Ausmus and Melvin no strangers
Monday might have marked the first time Tigers manager Brad Ausmus faced A's skipper Bob Melvin as counterparts in the dugout, but the two former Major League catchers are familiar with one another. In fact, Melvin was Ausmus' bench coach and catching coach during the 2000 season in Detroit.

"I'm pretty close to him," Melvin said. "He was the kind of the guy that always asked the questions that most players don't. He watched the game a little bit differently, as catchers do and are programmed to do. But if there was a guy back then that I would have said, 'You know, this guy's got a chance to be a manager,' it's him. He's come into a great situation and done a great job."

A's: Melvin compares Scherzer to Gray
Melvin served as the manager of the D-backs when Scherzer came up in that organization, debuting in 2008. He said he notices similarities in the makeup of Tuesday's starters, Scherzer and Gray, having managed them both.

"Both bulldogs," Melvin said of the aces. "Both guys that at young ages felt like that they could succeed. The stuff's a little different with what they do, but certainly the makeup is the same."

Melvin said Scherzer personifies a trend that has come to baseball in recent years: more emotion from players.

"Sonny can be emotional out there at times, too, and it's just kind of who they are. You let them be themselves," he said.

Gray also notices the competitive nature of Scherzer and admires it.

"He pitches with a lot of emotion and I like that as a player," Gray said. "It looks like he really, really, really wants to win and he has a lot of fun doing it."

Worth noting
Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler was out of the lineup Monday for the first time all season. He is expected to return Tuesday after taking a day off.
