COLUMBIA, Mo. - A year after starting the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and winning the American League Cy Young, former Mizzou pitcher and current Detroit Tiger Max Scherzer earned the win in last night's Major League Baseball All-Star Game. Scherzer pitched a scoreless fifth inning, allowing one hit and finishing with a team-high two strikeouts.

He entered the game in a 3-3 tie in the top of the fifth inning and got reigning National League MVP Andrew McCutchen to ground out to third base to open the frame. Scherzer then struck out Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig before allowing a two-out double to Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. But he struck out the Diamondbacks Paul Goldschmidt, last year's National League home run leader, to get out of the jam.

The American League All-Star team then tallied a pair of runs in the bottom of the fifth thanks to a Mike Trout RBI double and a Jose Altuve sacrifice fly, putting him in line for the win. The AL bullpen then allowed just two hits as they closed out the game, giving the win to Scherzer.
