Result: Loss

Today's winner is Oakland over Detroit.

Since the end of August, the A's have taken 3 of 4 over the Tigers. The big issue for Detroit is Miguel Cabrera. The slugger is dealing with both abdominal and groin injuries which have resulted in just two extra-base hits in his L25 games. The Tigers have a potent offense but has been hot-or-miss recently. The A's finished the season 96-66, including a home mark of 52-29. They too have a powerful lineup ranking 4th in RPG and 3rd in HRs. Max Scherzer starts for Detroit here. The RH is 21-3 on the season but was spanked for 6 runs (5 earned) in 5 IP on August 29th against Oakland. Bartolo Colon take the bump for the A's. The RH is 18-6 with a 2.65 mark this year, finishing the season with 4 straight victories. The Tigers are 3-7 their L10 road Playoff games, 0-4 their L4 straight Playoff games, and 1-5 their L6 games played vs. RH starters. The A's are 26-10 in Colon's L36 home starts, 42-19 their L61 games played at home, and 24-9 their L33 overall. Take Oakland. Thank you.
