Scherzer (1-1), who had given up 10 runs on 13 hits and three walks in 8 2-3 innings in his first two starts, held the Royals to three runs on seven hits and one walk in six-plus innings.
Scherzer lowered his earned run average from 10.38 to 7.98.
The Tigers scored two runs in the seventh off relievers Kelvin Herrera and Jose Mijares (0-1).
