CLEVELAND -- Max Scherzer didnt care that his record stayed spotless. All that mattered to him was that Detroits improved. Scherzer remained unbeaten and Victor Martinez hit a two-run double in the 10th inning as the Tigers extended their lead in the AL Central with a 4-2 win over the second-place Cleveland Indians on Monday night. Martinez doubled off Matt Albers (2-1) as the Tigers won three of four in the series and moved 3 1/2 games ahead in the division. Scherzer, attempting to become the first pitcher since Roger Clemens in 1986 to open a season 14-0, finished with a no-decision. He allowed two runs and seven hits in seven innings. The presumed AL starter in next weeks All-Star game will take his unblemished mark into a start on Saturday against Texas. "I dont want to focus much on that (being 13-0)," he said. "This was our best win of the year, and I was proud to be a part of it. The Indians battled so hard tonight and brought their A game, and we did, too. "It was just a great team win, our best of the year." Drew Smyly (4-0) worked out of a jam in the ninth and Joaquin Benoit pitched the 10th for his seventh save, striking out Mike Aviles with runners at first and third to end the game. Matt Tuiasosopo homered for the Tigers, now 9-3 against the Indians. Detroit was able to widen its lead over Cleveland by two games on this visit, but manager Jim Leyland knows champions arent crowned in July. "We came in and had a very good series against a very good team, but Im not really concerned about the standings," Leyland said. "Of course, Id rather leave here up 3 1/2 games than up 1 1/2 games. But trust me, the Indians are not going anywhere, and were not going anywhere, I dont think." Albers got two quick outs in the 10th before walking Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder. Martinez followed with a drive over the head of centre fielder Michael Bourn. The ball caromed off the wall, far enough away for two of Detroits slowest runners to score. After Fielder slid across the plate, he popped up from the dirt and swung his arm in celebration. The Indians had been 5-0 in extra-inning games. Cleveland came in with a reputation for beating Cy Young Award winners. The Indians have defeated seven former recipients this season, including Detroits Justin Verlander. Scherzer is clearly the midseason favourite to win the AL honour in 2013, and while the Indians didnt hand him a loss, they did prevent him from beating them for the third time this year. Scherzer wasnt at his best, and he was noticeably agitated on a night when the rain never really stopped. However, the 28-year-old got stronger as the game wore on. He gave up both runs -- on a two-run single in the second by Lonnie Chisenhall -- and five hits in the first three innings, and pitched out of a couple of jams he created. "He used to be a thrower and now hes a pitcher," Indians first baseman Nick Swisher said. "Youve got a guy with all those weapons and he starts to figure it out, that doesnt make anybody happy." After getting out of a first-and-third bind in the fifth, Scherzer got in a groove and struck out four of the final five batters he faced. In the seventh, he gave up a single to Bourn, who was caught stealing. Scherzer then struck out Asdrubal Cabrera and blew a 97 mph fastball past All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis to end the inning -- on his 117th pitch. Scherzer screamed and pumped his fist as he headed to the dugout, slapping hands with catcher Brayan Pena before taking a seat to watch the Tigers hit. "You can usually judge your outing on the last 15 pitches, and I thought I finished pretty strong," Scherzer said. Clevelands Scott Kazmir went pitch for pitch with Scherzer, allowing just two runs and four hits in 5 2-3 innings. Kazmir held the top four hitters -- Austin Jackson, Torii Hunter, Cabrera and Fielder -- in one of baseballs most feared lineups without a hit in 11 at-bats. The only one of the four to reach base was Cabrera, who walked with one out in the third. With both the Indians and weather threatening in the second, the game was delayed by rain. Thunder rumbled nearby and lightning flashed above Progressive Field as Scherzer battled Chisenhall with runners at second and third and two outs. The game was halted on a 2-2 count, and when play resumed 20 minutes later, Chisenhall jumped all over Scherzers first pitch, ripping a changeup to right for a two-run single. When he returned to the dugout, Scherzer slammed his glove and cap down in disgust. After the game, he said he was upset that umpire Joe West did not let him finish the at-bat to Chisenhall. He was mad again in the third, when the Indians loaded the bases on a pair of two-out singles and walk. But Scherzer snagged a comebacker by Aviles and carefully underhanded the ball to first for the final out. The Indians had their chances against Scherzer, and stranded 10 runners in all. "Its just kind of one of those games," Swisher said. "We left a small village on the sacks. Weve got to do a little better job there, but thats how baseball goes."

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Ryan Nassib had a big chance to show everyone what he could do as New York Giants quarterback with Eli Manning getting the night off.He blew it after a good first quarter.Nassib was consistent in leading the Giants on a game-opening touchdown drive and cashing in on an interception in staking New York to a 10-point lead.But his three second-quarter turnovers led to 17 points in the Miami Dolphins 27-10 victory in the preseason opener Friday night.The start of the game was delayed 51 minutes by weather, pushing back the coaching debuts of Ben McAdoo of the Giants and Adam Gase of the Dolphins.Neither coach had a lot to be happy about in a game marked by turnovers and penalties.Miami had nine penalties for 61 yards and one turnover. New York had four turnovers and seven penalties for 56 yards.A 3-yard run by Rashad Jennings and a 20-yard field goal by Josh Brown following an interception by Jonathan Casillas staked New York to its first-quarter lead.Nassib turned over the ball on three consecutive second-quarter possessions to give the Dolphins the lead.Bobby McCains interception led to a 49-yard field goal by Andrew Franks. A fumble and return by Spencer Paysinger set up Damien Williams 5-yard TD run, and an interception by A.J. Hendy led to a 51-yard TD pass from Matt Moore to Matt Hazel.Marshall Koehn added a 28-yard field goal in the third quarter and Zac Dysert capped the scoring with a fourth-down, 16-yard pass to Thomas Duarte, a score that followed a fumble by third-string quarterback Logan Thomas.QB COMPARISONDolphins: Ryan Tannehill finished 2 of 4 for 8 yards. Moore was 10 of 14 for 122 yards and a touchdown. Brandon Doughty, the seventh-round pick from Western Kentucky, finished up and looked good, hitting 7 of 9 for 66 yards.Giants: Nassib finished 7 of 15 for 75 yards with the three turnovers in a performance that will not inspire confidence that he would be able to step in and replace Manning. After holding the ball for more than 18 minutes in the first half, the offense was limited to nine minutes of possession in the second.ROOKIE WATCHDolphins: Dolphins first-round pick LLaremy Tunsil didnt start, but played most of the game at left guard and held his own.dddddddddddd Leonte Carroo, the former Rutgers star who was Miamis third-round pick, had three catches for 18 yards. Sixth-round pick Jakeem Grant had four catches for 68 yards.Giants: First-round pick cornerback Eli Apple played well until straining his lower leg. Second-round pick Sterling Shepard had one diving catch for 24 yards, setting up the Giants touchdown.POSITION BATTLESDolphins: Franks woke up the Dolphins offense with a 49-yard field goal in the second quarter. Koehn showed a good leg on kickoffs.Giants: Big games for the rookies. Apple, Shepard and S Darian Thompson are all going to contribute, along with MLB B.J. Goodson, who had seven tackles, including two for losses.NOT SO STEAMYThe late start and the pre-game rain dropped the temperature to 76 degrees at kickoff. The rain convinced McAdoo to sit Odell Beckham Jr.INJURY UPDATEDolphins: Grant (rib), S Shamiel Gary (neck), DE Chris McClain (elbow) and DE Julius Warmsley (concussion) did not return.Giants: Apple and Shepard were hurt in the first half and did not return. WR Geremy Davis pulled a hamstring in the second half. Veteran Victor Cruz was already out with a groin injury.QUOTABLEDolphins: The defense got their hands on the ball multiple times and turned the game around for us, Tannehill said. The offense, we didnt get much going in the first half, first or second group. But they started getting their hands on the ball and flipping the momentum and really got the game going for us.Giants: Ball security is the No. 1 priority and I didnt do a good job of it, said Nassib, who has thrown 10 NFL regular-season passes in his first three seasons. We have a lot to work on, but the turnovers are unacceptable. You never go into a game expecting to throw interceptions, obviously when you fail its disappointing and frustrating, but we have to bounce back and get back out there.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Authentic Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys China NFL Hoodies Cheap Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Camo China NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China ' ' '
