Nov 13, 2013

Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer easily won the American League Cy Young Award Wednesday.

The award honors the best pitcher in Major League Baseball this year. Scherzer led the major leagues with 21 victories this season.

Scherzer gave credit to his Detroit Tigers teammates.

“This is an award celebrated with them as well because they played the great defense, they provided all the run support and they helped get me to this point,” says Scherzer.

Scherzer drew 28 of the 30 first-place votes in balloting by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.
