DETROIT (AP) - Max Scherzer's unbeaten run ended Saturday night when the Texas Rangers tagged the Detroit All-Star with his first loss of the season, defeating the Tigers 7-1. 

Scherzer (13-1) was trying to become the first pitcher in the majors to start 14-0 since Roger Clemens in 1986. He allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings, walking two and striking out six. 

It was Scherzer's first regular-season loss since Sept. 23, a span of 21 starts. 

Mitch Moreland's two-run homer in the fourth gave Texas a 3-0 lead, and for once, the Tigers didn't back Scherzer with much offensive support. Derek Holland (8-4) allowed a run and five hits in seven innings. 

Adrian Beltre added a two-run homer in a three-run ninth for Texas.
