How Was The Game? (September 24, 2013)

Tigers 4, Twins 2 (Magic # =1)

Doug Fister (32 GS, 207.2 IP, 3.68 ERA, 3.27 FIP, 4.5 WAR) turned in a fine performance in his last start of the regular season, holding the Twins to 2 runs in 6.1 innings to go with 7 strikeouts and just one walk. He left with the lead – a lead the bullpen held – thanks to a 4 run 4th inning that featured 3-HR from the Martinez, Infante, and Jackson. A night after giving one away, the Tigers slammed the door on the Twins and cut their magic number to one with Max Scherzer (31 GS, 207.1 IP, 3.00 ERA, 2.74 FIP, 6.2 WAR) in line to start the clincher on Wednesday during his final start of the season.

The Moment: Jackson sends one into the bullpen to give the Tigers a 4-1 lead.
