ALDS Game Five Preview: Tigers at Athletics

by Paul Sporer


I still have Game Two as both the best of this series and the playoffs at large, but Game Four was thrilling throughout with potential Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer wiggling out of a bases-loaded jam en route to earning the second Detroit win of the series. It’s worth noting that he did not start the game, but rather threw two electrifying innings of relief.

Tigers (Justin Verlander) at Athletics (Sonny Gray) 8:07 p.m. ET
PECOTA odds of winning: Tigers 56.3%, Athletics 43.7%

Projected Starting Lineups:

Tigers vs. Gray (R)

Athletics vs. Verlander (R)

Austin Jackson (R) CF
