Albert Pujols hit his 498th homer, connecting for a solo shot in the ninth for Los Angeles. Scherzer (1-1) allowed a run and three hits with two walks.

Scherzer, meanwhile, looked every bit his Cy Young self. Trout, Pujols and Ibanez -- the second, third and fourth hitters in the Los Angeles lineup -- went 0 for 8 with seven strikeouts and a walk against the Detroit starter. "I cant say enough about how important that start was -- not only for us as a team, but just for the bullpen," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "We had a bunch of guys out there who really could use a day off." Its no surprise when Scherzer pitches well, but Chamberlains performance may have been even more encouraging.
