Verlander overcame a leadoff home run by Coco Crisp. Detroit would tie it in the bottom half on a leadoff double by Austin Jackson, a single by Quintin Berry, and double play ground ball by Miguel Cabrera. Starting A's pitcher Jarrod Parker mishandled a ground ball by Berry for the Tigers' second run. Alex Avila added a solo home run in the fifth.

Detroit 5 Oakland 4. Both teams made history by allowing the tying runs to score on wild pitches in the same inning. Jaoquin Benoit allowed a single to Yoenis Cepedes who stole second and third. Benoit's wild pitch brought him home and Benoit reverted to his pattern of serving up gopher balls when Josh Reddick connected on the following pitch to give the A's a 4-3 lead. Ryan Cook returned the favor in the bottom half of the eighth after Don Kelly came in to pinch run for Delmon Young who singled to center. Kelly moved to second on a single by Jhonny Peralta and was sacrrifice to third. He then came home on a wild pitch by Cook. Detroit would score the winning run in the bottom of the ninth on a sacrifice fly by Kelly.

Detroit leads the series 2-0 with Game 3 in Oakland tomorrow night.

Does anyone think Alex Rodriguez should be benched. In the playoffs, he is 1 for 9 if I'm correct and has been struggling against hard throwing righthanders. The paper says he has a lifetime .271 average for the playoffs. I didn't realize it was that good since he usually doesn't do anything in the postseason.

Jose Valverde falters in the ninth inning giving up three runs, two on a game tying double by Seth Smith and the winning run with two outs on a single by Coco Crisp. It highlights the concern I had in September, a once again shaky bullpen, which would be Detroit's undoing. The three run rally gave Oakland a 4-3 victory and evened the series at 2-2.

New York takes a 2-1 series lead over Baltimore as Raul Ibanez becomes the first player to hit two home runs in a post season game without starting it, according to STATS LLC. Ibanez tied the game in the ninth inning with his first homer, pinch hitting for Alex Rodriguez and won the game in the 12th on the first pitch to give the Yankees a 3-2 win. Baltimore had won 16 straight extra inning games and were 76-0 when leading after the seventh inning.

The 29 mil/season player sits on the bench. ;)

Justin Verlander shuts out Oakland 6-0 on four hits to send Detroit into the ALCS against the winner of the New York-Baltimore series. Verlander struck out 11 and became the first to first to win a winner-take-all game the year after winning the Cy Young Award. It was also his first post season shutout. I'm still an advocate of the complete game despite what the reality is because of the risk of overworking the bullpen.

A-Rod is not in the starting lineup for today's Game 5. I wonder if Father Time is starting to catch up with him.
