DETROIT (AP) - In a scene emblematic of Detroit's postseason downfall, Max Scherzer could only watch.
In fact, there was little any of the Tigers' starting pitchers could have done differently to prevent another disappointing ending to a fine year.
The Tigers lost the AL championship series to Boston in six games because the few weaknesses they had all seemed to hurt them at the worst possible time. Whether it was an unreliable bullpen, poor baserunning or shaky fielding, the Red Sox took advantage of every Detroit flaw.
Now the Tigers must look ahead to 2014, with a core of players that has done everything Detroit could ask for - except win a World Series for the Motor City.
