The Tigers got some timely hitting from Austin Jackson in the third inning and Justin Verlander looks to be set on cruise control.
The A’s have a flair for the dramatic, as we found out last night, so a couple more runs would be nice. Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder didn’t deliver after Jackson got an RBI and scored. Their bats are ones you hope would step up in this big game.
Verlander has thrown 44 pitches, striking out four, walking one and surrendering one hit through the first three innings.
