After a game that had a little bit of everything - errors, wild pitches and kissed balls - the Detroit Tigers emerged with a 2-0 series lead over the Oakland A's.
Both starters were impressive. Doug Fister went 7 innings, allowed 6 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks and fired 8 strikeouts.
Tommy Milone pitched 6 innings, allowed 5 hits, 1 run, 1 walk and notched 6 Ks.
In the 7th inning, with 2 outs and the A's up 2-1, Coco Crisp dropped Cabrera's flyball - allowing 2 runs to score.
Oakland tied it in the 8th on a wild pitch by Joaquin Benoit , and Josh Reddick followed with a solo homer to give the A's a 4-3 lead.
In the bottom of the 8th, Ryan Cook reciprocated with a game-tying wild pitch, allowing pinch-runner Don Kelly to score.
Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque ruffled Oakland's feathers in the 9th when Yoenis Cespedes hit a comebacker with men on first and third and 2 out. He gave the ball a little kiss before throwing underhand to first.

Utility-man extraordinaire, Don Kelly, was the DH in the bottom of the 9th, and hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly to give Detroit a 5-4 win.

Game 3 - 9:07 PM in Oakland. Anibal Sanchez vs Brett Anderson?
