as Gomer would say, "surprise surprise surprise"

 

 

Detroit Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer has won the 2013 American League Cy Young Award.

Scherzer, who finished 21-3 with a 2.90 ERA in 32 starts, received 28 of 30 first-place votes. Scherzer led the majors in wins, finished second in strikeouts (240) and third in WHIP (0.97).

Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers and Hisashi Iwakuma of the Seattle Mariners finished second and third, respectively, in the voting.

The 29-year-old Scherzer became the second Tigers pitcher in three seasons to win the Cy Young Award, joining teammate Justin Verlander, who won in 2011.
