CHICAGO -- Max Scherzer wasnt at his best Wednesday. Terry Bradshaw Steelers Jersey . But it was more than enough to beat the White Sox. Scherzer threw six scoreless innings and the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 5-1 to finish a two-game sweep. Scherzer (3-1) won his third straight start, allowing four hits while striking out seven to become the first pitcher in team history with at least seven strikeouts in each of his first six starts. He also became the first in the majors to do it since Tim Lincecum began the 2010 season with at least six strikeouts in his first seven starts. But it was the three walks and 105 pitches that gnawed at the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner. "They fought me all the way through the whole at-bat," Scherzer said. "I just thought I could have been a little more efficient so I could have pitched deeper into the game." Scherzer beat the White Sox for the second straight time, following up his April 24 win when he went six innings and allowed two runs in a 7-4 victory. He also helped Tigers win for the fourth time in five games, and shut down the powerful White Sox offence for the second straight day. "Yeah, we missed out on a couple of opportunities today and yesterday too, but those guys are pretty good pitchers and have been for a while," White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers said. "They do some good things in those situations and get the job done. We just have to find a way to battle through on some of those and get some runs across." On Tuesday, Justin Verlander and two relievers held the White Sox to seven hits in a 4-3 Detroit win. Scherzer and the Tigers continued that Wednesday against a team that started the day first in the American League in runs and second in home runs and slugging, coming within one out of a shutout. "Theres 29 other managers that would like to be able to do that," Detroits Brad Ausmus said of starting Verlander and Scherzer on consecutive days. Chicagos Robin Ventura is certainly one of those managers. As with Flowers, he heaped praise on Scherzer. "Hes great, hes always tough. You get some guys on, you get opportunities and thats when good pitchers really show their stuff. He did that today," Ventura said. "We at least got him a high pitch count and he couldnt get eight or nine innings. But, hes just tough." The Tigers got all the runs they needed in a four-run fourth, when Detroit scored four times against Hector Noesi (0-2). Bryan Holaday capped the rally with a two-run double. Noesi, making a spot start for Chicago, went 3 2-3 innings, allowing four runs and five hits. He breezed through the first three innings, but ran into trouble in the fourth in his first start of the season. "We dont know much about the guy, and I dont think he has been extended that far so it may have been a combination of the hitters getting a chance to see him a few times and also maybe because he hadnt been as deep into a game this year," Ausmus said. "He could have been getting a little tired as well." The White Sox challenged Scherzer as well, but left seven runners on against the Tigers righty. "Im very cognizant of what theyre able to do and always willing to give them credit," Scherzer said. "Today I thought they did a good job of battling me but when push came to shove I thought I was better." NOTES: The Tigers announced that left-hander Robbie Ray will make his major-league debut Tuesday in Detroit against the Astros. Ray, 22, was acquired this off-season from the Nationals as part of the trade that sent starter Doug Fister to Washington, and will start in place of injured starter Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez is on the disabled list with a laceration on his right middle finger and threw from flat ground prior to Wednesdays game. . C Alex Avila missed his second straight game with back spasms. . Robin Ventura said LHP Chris Sale is "feeling better" but a rehab start is a possibility if his recovery continues to be extended. Sale has been on the disabled list since April 22 -- retroactive to April 18 -- with a flexor muscle strain in his left arm. Ventura also said RHP Felipe Paulino (right rotator cuff inflammation) will have a rehab assignment coming up "pretty soon." Ross Cockrell Jersey . Roy says he will know more about Duchenes potential playing status Sunday. Duchene has been out since damaging the MCL in his left knee when he ran into a teammate against San Jose on March 29. Hes been skating on his own all week, before joining the team Saturday hours before a pivotal game in a series tied at 2. Mike Mitchell Steelers Jersey .

Usman Khawaja (58 off 45 balls) starred with the bat as Australia chased down a tricky target of 157 set by Bangladesh with nine balls to spare, overcoming a dramatic late batting collapse.Leg-spinner Adam Zampa took 3-23 for Australia after they won the toss and chose to bowl first, but Mahmudullah hit an unbeaten 49 from 29 balls to help Bangladesh post a competitive total of 156-5.Australia looked to be cruising to a comfortable win as Khawaja - included at the expense of Aaron Finch for the second straight game - hit a maiden T20I fifty.But Australia lost six wickets for 57, with Shakib Al Hasan taking 3-27 and Sussex-bound left-arm-seamer Mustafizur Rahman 2-30, before James Faulkner finally hit the winning runs in the 19th over. Shakib Al Hasan (right) excelled with bat and ball for Bangladesh Without the in-form Tamim Iqbal at the top of the order due to illness, Bangladesh limped to 10-1 after three overs of their innings, with Shane Watson (2-31) taking the wicket of Soumya Sarkar in the second over.Sabbir Rahman (12) finally struck the first boundary for the Tigers in the fourth, one of two in the same John Hastings over - brought into the Australian side in place of Ashton Agar. But Rahman became Watsons second victim soon after, caught at mid-on, bringing Shakib (33 off 25) to the crease - the all-rounder adding some much-needed impetus to the innings.Zampa dismissed Mohammad Mithun (23) and Shuvagata Hom (13) at the other end, the latter after having been dropped on nought and smashing the spinners previous two deliveries for 10.When Shakib became Zampas third scalp in the 16th over - top-edging to short third man - Bangladesh were limping towards the finish at 105-5, before Mahmudullahs late blast.He and Mushfiqur Rahim (15no off 11) hit 15 off James Faulkners 18th over and 17 off Watsons 19th, particularly cashing in on anything wide and sending it crashing to the third man boundary as they helped their side to a useeful score. Joe Greene Steelers Jersey. Khawaja did damage early on against the Bangladesh attack Khawaja, who starred in Australias Test summer and during the Big Bash League for eventual champions, Sydney Thunder, took apart the Bangladesh attack early on.The left-handed opener struck seven fours - including three-straight off Shakib in the fifth over - and one six, off just the fourth ball of the innings.Watson (21 off 15) was more sedate at the other end, striking just the two fours and one six in their 61-run opening stand before he was run out by Rahman - atoning for a bad drop by Mithun when Watson was on 13. Mohammed Mithun dropped an easy catch when Shane Watson was on 13 Bangladesh continued to fight, with Mustafizur bowling Steve Smith (14), and Khawaja and David Warner (17) falling inside an over of each other.Despite Australia being well up with the required run-rate, the nervy batting continued as Mitchell Marsh and Hastings fell cheaply, either side of the wicket of Glenn Maxwell - who appeared to be taking his side home with a quick-fire 26 off 15. James Faulkner (second right) closed out the victory for Australia Maxwell and Hastings fell in the same Shakib over, with the latter dropped by Al-Amin three balls prior to his ultimate dismissal as Bangladesh let Australia off the hook, Faulkner hitting the winning runs soon after.Watch highlights of Australias win over Bangladesh on Sky Sports 2 from 7pm, then join us for live coverage of New Zealands Group 2 encounter with Pakistan live on Sky Sports 2 from 1.30pm on Tuesday.
