Elias' Complete Game Shutout Helps Mariners Top Tigers

Posted:
SEATTLE (AP) - Rookie Roenis Elias pitched a three-hitter for the first complete game of his career, leading the Seattle Mariners over the Detroit Tigers 4-0 Sunday.
    
Elias (4-4) struck out eight and walked one in his 12th major league start, and the first one to last longer than seven innings.
    
The 25-year-old left-hander from Cuba kept Detroit off balance with his curve, striking out five with the breaking ball. The Tigers only put one runner in scoring position, and Elias matched a career high with 111 pitches.
    
Max Scherzer (6-2) gave up four runs and nine hits in 6 2-3 innings.
