The pitching matchups have been announced by the A’s and Tigers.
Here you go:
Game 5 at Oakland (if necessary) Colon vs. Scherzer.
Scherzer took the news that he would be the Game 1 starter in stride.
“I didn’t care,” Scherzer said. “I just didn’t care. The only thing I care about is pitching well and winning. Whatever game number you pitch doesn’t matter to me.”
Our Favorite Detroit Tigers Games of 2013 – Bless You Boys
With 162 games, entire weeks can become a blur. That happens to us, too. But we put our heads together and tried to think of some of our favorite games of the year, and this is what we came up with.
But for sheer guts and radical thought in a game that seldom allows the latter, no position shift in postseason history matches what happened 45 years ago when the Tigers and manager Mayo Smith dropped a lineup bombshell.
Their prized center fielder, Mickey Stanley, was moving to shortstop in a bid to fill a black hole of a hitting void and include Al Kaline in a World Series batting order that otherwise had no room for Detroit’s future Hall of Famer.
