Rajai Davis set to see some time coming up
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis was in the leadoff spot Saturday against the Angels, and that could become a trend over the next week or so. Manager Brad Ausmus told MLB.com he wants Davis at the top of the lineup against left-handed pitchers, and the Tigers are set to face five lefties in a span of six days.

"I've kind of had that in mind against lefties, to have Rajai and Ian [Kinsler] at the top," Ausmus said.

Davis made Ausmus look good Saturday, as he reached base three times in a 5-2 win. He went 1 for 3 with a pair of walks, though he did not score in the game, and was caught stealing once.

Davis' career line against lefties (.295/.354/.426) is much better than what he has produced against right-handed pitching (.257/.299/.354.)

Max Scherzer earns first win over Angels
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Tigers starting pitcher Max Scherzer continued his solid string of starts to open the season Saturday, and finally picked up his first win against the Angels.

Scherzer tossed seven strong innings in the win, allowing just one run on a first-inning solo home run. He gave up just one hit while walking two batters, and he racked up nine strikeouts while throwing 70 of 111 pitches for strikes in a 5-2 win.

Scherzer has a 2.33 ERA after four starts, but had received just five total runs of support entering Saturday and had yet to win. He is now 1-1 heading into his next start, scheduled for Thursday against the White Sox.
