 Max Scherzer struck out 14 in 5 2-3 shutout innings hours after he was recalled from Triple-A Toledo, helping the Detroit Tigers beat the Oakland Athletics 10-2 on Sunday to end a four-game losing streak.

Scherzer allowed two hits, walked four and hit a batter in his first game since he was sent down following a rough opening stretch of the season. He was only called back up because Armando Galarraga(notes), Sunday’s scheduled starter, pitched in relief on Friday and wasn’t available.

After being acquired from Arizona, Scherzer began the year in Detroit's rotation, but was sent to Triple-A Toledo after going 1-4 with a 7.29 ERA in eight starts.

He had 11 strikeouts on Sept. 7, 2008, for Arizona against the Dodgers.
