Video: Stephen Vogt delivers the big hit
BEST OF MAXIM
History, Meet Stephen Vogt
Tonight in Oakland, Detroit had the chance to take a 2-0 lead in their best of five series against the A's. They had Justin Verlander on the mound, and despite a year that clearly ranks as the worst in his career, he was utterly dominant against them, as if nothing had changed in the 12 months since he ended them in the 2012 ALCS. They had the reigning...
OAKLAND - On the brink of disaster, the Oakland A’s had a pair of rookies lead them to a 1-0 victory in Game Two of their American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers. Thanks to the heroics of starting pitcher Sonny Gray and catcher Stephen Vogt, the A’s will head to Detroit with the series tied at one game apiece.
Stephen Vogt hit .252 during the regular season for the Oakland Athletics. But if the A's beat the Tigers in the ALDS and advance through the postseason, it's very possible no A's fan is going to remember that. They could very well speak fondly of the second-year catcher's feats of athleticism in Oakland's Game 2 victory over Detroit.
In the two ALDS games on Saturday, both went largely the same as on Friday - one was a pitchers duel, and one was less so. The Red Sox beat the Rays 7-4 to take a 2-0 series lead, and the A's beat the Tigers 1-0 on a walk off hit by Stephen Vogt. The Tigers-A's matchup is now knotted at two games heading to Detroit, while the Red Sox lead their series with the Rays 2-0 going...
The Oakland Athletics walked off against the Detroit Tigers in the bottom of the 9th Saturday, winning 1-0 on a Stephen Vogt bases-loaded single. The win tied the A’s with the Tigers in the ALDS at one game apiece with Game 3 coming Monday in Detroit.
Tigers starter, Justin Verlander, went 7 innings and struck out 11 while giving up only four hits. Matching that effort was...
The game stories might end up being about Stephen Vogt and that’s fine. He got the big walk-off hit and he hasn’t been celebrated much so far in his baseball career. But, as with many big moments, the seeds that resulted in that wild finish were sown much earlier in the day.
Consider the third inning.
Sonny Gray brushed back Torii Hunter, who was hit in Game One. Because he...
Oakland, CA —
The Oakland Athletics loaded the bases in the 9th inning and Stephen Vogt hit a walk off single to score Yoenis Cespedes to even up their American League Division Series with the Tigers, 1-0.
It was a pitching duel from the get go, with Sonny Gray and Justin Verlander becoming the first pair of starting pitchers to each throw 9+ strikeouts and not allow an earned...
Most Oakland A’s fans were extremely tense during the pitching duel between Justin Verlander and Sonny Gray. The amazing game wasn’t decided until the bottom of the ninth inning, however this unruly A’s fan never got to see Stephen Vogt’s walk-off single. This Oakland fan was being a nuisance and when he was asked to leave he refused. He wasn’t about to abandon his Athletics...
For those of us on the east coast, it's tough, even on a Saturday night to stay up and watch west coast sporting events.
And it appears for those of us sleepyheads, we missed a lot.
The Oakland A's evened up their best of 5 ALDS series with the Detroit Tigers late Saturday night after rookie Stephen Vogt's single in the bottom of the 9th off Rick...
The A's got the win they desperately needed on Saturday night. After eight and a half scoreless innings Stephen Vogt broke the deadlock with a bases loaded walk-off hit to send the ALDS to Detroit tied at one game apiece.
Rookie Sonny Gray looked like a grizzled veteran on Saturday night striking out nine batters over eight innings and holding the Tigers scoreless in his postseason debut.
