Max Scherzer racked up 10 more strike outs to earn his 21st victory of the season and the Detroit Tigers clinched the AL Central for the third year in a row. Scherzer did hand out six walks, but held the Twins scoreless over seven innings. He is the odds-on favorite to win the American League Cy Young award and finishes the season with a 21-3 record, 2.90 ERA and 240 strikeouts in 214 2/3 innings. As early as the opening inning, Scherzer was pumped up in this one and he finished the regular season on a high note. He'll be a fantasy ace again in 2014.
Raise your hand if you knew Jason Giambi was still playing and who he was playing for before last night? He hit a game-winning two-run home run off Chicago White Sox closer Addison Reed for the Cleveland Indians in the bottom of the 9th inning and it was the Indians 11th walk-off victory in 2013. Giambi is so old that one media report said he is 42-years old and the other report said he is 43-years old. It was an incredible finish to a game as the Tribe held onto the wild card lead along with the Tampa Bay Rays. It was shaping up to be a devastating loss for the Indians after Chris Perez served up the game-tying and go-ahead homers in the top of the inning. Giambi bailed Perez out in the bottom of the 9th and sent everybody home happy in Cleveland with a walk-off home run!
