ALCS bound! Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrera carry Detroit Tigers to 3-0 victory in do-or-die Game 5, Chris Iott

The Tigers open AL Championship Series play Saturday night in Boston against the Red Sox.

On the field, there was no bigger hit for the Tigers in Game 4 than the home run Martinez belted in the seventh off left-hander Sean Doolittle to tie the game after the A's had taken a 4-3 lead off Max Scherzer.

We told Sonny Gray to not do that!

It's been a long time since Miguel Cabrera's looked like Miguel Cabrera. But there are still probably some pitches you shouldn't throw him.

The Tigers haven't been scoring much against the A's. The solution? Don Kelly, of course! But what they really need is the pre-September version of Miguel Cabrera. Good luck with that.

The Tigers probably have at least one more legitimate shot as a World Series threat next season, with Torii Hunter and Victor Martinez approaching the final years of their contracts.

It wasn’t a perfect game, it wasn’t a no-hitter, it wasn’t a shutout, and it wasn’t even a complete game (though it was very nearly all of those things), but Justin Verlander could hardly have been more brilliant in his eight scoreless innings in Game 5 in Oakland on Thursday night.
