Oakland A's, Darlings of Baseball, Face Elimination Against Miguel Cabrera and the Tigers

Oakland staged a late-season rally to catch and overtake Texas and win the AL West. They avoided the Wild Card game!

What did they get in return? Two games in Detroit – which won six fewer games during the regular season – and now, finally, a home game.

The problem? Oakland is down 0-2.

Brett Anderson pitches for Oakland against Anibal Sanchez.

Sorry Billy Beane, Joaquin Andujar isn’t walking through that door. Carney Lansford isn’t walking through that door.
