Verlander Too Much For A’s To Overcome In Game Five Loss

While the San Francisco Giants were extremely lucky to not have to face their opponent’s best pitcher in the playoffs this week due to a random injury, their counterparts in the East Bay were tremendously unfortunate to see the best pitcher on the planet twice — so it didn’t end well for the Oakland Athletics Thursday night, as they lost Game Five of their playoff series to see their season end all too soon.



A’s Deliver Miracle Finish In Ninth Inning To Beat Tigers And Force Game Five

No one should ever doubt the 2012 Oakland Athletics again, not after Wednesday night’s three-run ninth inning that shocked the Detroit Tigers and even up the teams’ American League Division Series at two games apiece. Game Five will be Thursday night at the O.co Coliseum, with the winner advancing to the AL Championship Series.



A’s Head Home Down But Far From Out

The Oakland A’s lost the first two games of their American League Division Series on the road to the Detroit Tigers, but now they come back home for the rest of the series. It’ll be up to these young Athletics to extend this series as long as they can at the Coliseum.



A’s In Great Position To Win Series Despite Dropping Game 1

The Oakland A’s certainly don’t want to return to Oakland down two games to none, so the team will have to show the season-long resiliency they’ve demonstrated all of 2012 on Sunday at Comerica Park. Rookie Tommy Milone gets the ball for the team as they look to even up their playoff series with the Tigers.



Beating Verlander A Tall Order For The Swingin’ A’s of 2012

The Oakland Athletics are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2006, and they have a chance to get some revenge on the team that knocked them out in the ALCS that year: the Detroit Tigers. But it won’t be easy in Game 1 against Justin Verlander.
