MINNEAPOLIS -- The Detroit Tigers are Central Division champions. Again. Max Scherzer allowed just two hits and struck out 10 in seven innings Wednesday night as the Tigers wrapped up their third consecutive division title with a 1-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins. The win guarantees the Tigers a spot in the American League Division Series, where they will play either the Oakland Athletics or Boston Red Sox. The most likely scenario at this point has the Tigers opening on the road against the A's, who have the second-best record in the American League.
