Max Scherzer pitched 8 shutout innings and got just enough help from the Tiger hitters to complete a three game sweep of the Chicago White Sox at Comerica Park this afternoon.

Scherzer is now 4-0 on the young 2011 season, and the Tigers find themselves on a 4-game winning streak after today's 3-0 victory over the White Sox.  That's two shutout wins in a row for the Tigers, after Brad Penny pitched a gem yesterday.

Alex Avila continues to perform as he drove home the first run in the 4th inning on a bases-loaded groundout, then scored on Brandon Inge's double in the 6th.  Austin Jackson also had two hits and drove in a run today. 

Tigers have an off day tomorrow before hosting the Seattle Mariners for a three game series beginning Tuesday night.

The Tigers have won 9 straight games against the White Sox between this season and last.
