Verlander impressed by Gray; Tigers lose to A's

Justin Verlander returned to the clubhouse to refocus when Detroit was batting, and watched Sonny Gray closely. It didn't take Verlander long to realize that one run might be all anybody managed - and that it could be a tough night for his Tigers. Against a rookie making only his 11th major league start, no less. Verlander's masterful postseason outing was matched by Gray...

Violent A’s Fan Attacks Cops During Playoff Game And Gets Tasered

Most Oakland A’s fans were extremely tense during the pitching duel between Justin Verlander and Sonny Gray.

This Oakland fan was being a nuisance and when he was asked to leave he refused. He wasn’t about to abandon his Athletics...

Tigers need to get the bats going

If the Detroit Tigers are going to advance out of the ALDS, they're going to have to find a way to create some offense. The Tigers looked like they had broken out of their late-season offensive malaise with three quick runs in the first inning of Game 1. Then, nothing. Just nothing. Max Scherzer, Drew Smyly and Joaquin Benoit made those three runs stand up in a 3-2 victory...

A’s outlast Tigers in Game 2 walkoff victory

OAKLAND, CA- After Game 1′s intense contest that was ultimately won by the Tigers, the A’s desperately needed a win to stay out of the brink of elimination.

You’ve Been Framed

The A’s and Tigers are playing Game 3 right now, but they played Game 2 on Saturday night, and that game was umpired by one CB Bucknor. Bucknor is routinely considered one of baseball’s worst umpires, and Saturday he made a few questionable decisions, the most questionable of which was probably a called strike three against Seth Smith in the bottom of the second. Now, granted...

A’s Power Their Way to Game 3 Victory in Detroit

The A’s relied on the main components that have carried them all season long on Monday afternoon: pitching and power. Jarrod Parker followed Sonny Gray’s ‘David versus Goliath’ style performance against former MVP and Cy Young award winner Justin Verlander with an outstanding game of his own, out-pitching 2013 AL ERA champion Anibal Sanchez in the A’s 6-3 victory. The A’s...

Talkin’ Tigers Series Reset: Though An Oakland Split Was Frustrating, Tigers are in Good Shape

In the wake of the Detroit Tigers’ tough loss on Saturday night, there seemed to be plenty of reason to panic. After all, the Tigers haven’t scored a run in 17 innings and lost in walk off fashion.
