ALDS Game 2: Tigers at A's

by Paul Sporer


Bartolo Colon opened only one window in Game 1, but the Tigers stormed through it, building a three-run first-inning lead that would prove insurmountable. Colon regained his command and kept his team close, but Max Scherzer’s one mistake – a two-run moonshot to Yoenis Cespedes that still hasn’t landed – wasn’t enough for the A’s to maintain home-field advantage.

Tigers (Justin Verlander) at Athletics (Sonny Gray) 9:07 p.m. ET
PECOTA odds of winning: Tigers 53.9%, Athletics 46.1%

Projected Starting Lineups:

Tigers vs. Gray (R)

Athletics vs. Verlander (R)

Austin Jackson (R) CF
