Tigers SP Max Scherzer's fastball was the the key to his success on Sunday. According to MLB.com, Scherzer worked on his fastball mechanics while down in Triple-A and was able to find the perfect arm action that added late movement to his heater. His fastball was so dominant he rarely threw his slider. He threw his fastball for 81 of his 113 pitches and only threw eight sliders.
