Victor Martinez’s kid looks like he had an epic time in the Tigers clubhouse after their win in Oakland. I’m sure this will be something that he will remember for the rest of his life. https://twitter.com/blessyouboys/status/388518848674033664/photo/1 [@CorkGaines]
The Detroit Tigers rose from the ashes on Tuesday night to come back and tie the ALDS series 2-2 with the Oakland A’s. Game 5 will be played on Thursday night at the O.co Coliseum and first pitch is set for 8:07 eastern.
For the Tigers, it will once again be Justin Verlander taking the mound in Oakland for the clincher. He did that last year if you recall, and all he did was shut...

But the Detroit Tigers slugger still was able to give us one of the best plays of the year on Sunday when he was not only able to stop a sure double down the line, but make the put-out at first base with a no-look flip to Drew Smyly. That was gorgeous, and extremely lucky...
