Tigers 3, A’s 2
If you said, “hey, I bet the Tigers bullpen could win an entire game,” entering this season, collect your prize. Alex Wilson and Kyle Ryan combined for a great start to set up the Yoenis Cespedes three run home run in the 5th that proved to be the difference. It got a little dicey as the A’s grabbed a run in the 7th and 8th and threatened in the 9th, but the Tigers held on and secured a series win on a day in which Dixon Machado grabbed his first MLB hit. It wasn’t the cleanest series but the Tigers won twice against a solid team (ignore their record, mostly). They’ll head south to LA to take on the Trouts on Thursday starting with Buck Farmer (2015 Debut).
The Moment: Cespedes turns on one to score three.
