Coco Crisp had four hits to earn a game grade of 104.4 (A+) but the Athletics fell to Detroit, 8-6.

With the game even at 3-3 in the top of the seventh and the Athletics batting, Stephen Vogt came in on a single by Crisp off reliever Max Scherzer. With the game tied at 4-4 in the bottom of the seventh, the Tigers went on top to stay when Austin Jackson hit a single off Sean Doolittle to drive in Andy Dirks.

Dan Straily went six innings in the loss and settled for a no-decision after he surrendered three runs on four hits with eight strikeouts and no walks. Doolittle got his first loss in the postseason after going 2/3 of an inning allowing two runs on three hits, punching out one, and walking one. After allowing one run on three hits over two innings with two strikeouts and two walks, Scherzer (2-0) got the win. Crisp was tops in the batter's box for the Athletics, going 4 for 5 with a triple, three runs, and an RBI. Jed Lowrie also had a spectacular game, going 2 for 4 with a home run, two runs, three RBIs, and a walk. Jhonny Peralta was 2 for 3 with a double, a home run, a run, and three RBIs in the win.

With the loss, the Athletics fall into a tie in the series at two games apiece and are just one loss away from being knocked out of the ALDS. The Athletics will go up against the Tigers Thursday in Game 5 of the ALDS at The Coliseum at 6:07 PM PDT.
