Worth noting

• Tigers starter Max Scherzer (right shoulder fatigue) said after his outing on Sunday that he wasn't in his normal routine between starts and therefore didn't have the same zip on his fastball. However, Scherzer has since been cleared to conduct his normal activities and the hope is he'll be back to full strength.

• The controversial ending to Monday night's Packers-Seahawks NFL game had an impact in the Tigers' clubhouse, where it cost Miguel Cabrera a win over Rick Porcello in the players' Fantasy Football league. Porcello had to explain that one to him on Tuesday.

• Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta entered Tuesday night's game batting .169 for September. It's his worst month of the season and it was also his worst month in 2011 as well. He hit .259 in September 2011, and .220 in the postseason.
