Miami slips by Detroit again in 10 innings, 2-1

Post  Admin on Sun Sep 29, 2013 1:29 pm

The Detroit Tigers lost their second straight game to the Miami Marlins, 2-1, in 10 innings, but on the bright side, starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez locked up the American League ERA title with five scoreless innings as he finished the regular season with a 2.57 ERA.

Sanchez allowed only two hits and struck out eight batters to become the third member of the staff to surpass 200 strikeouts for the season and finished with 202. The Tigers struck out 11 Marlins to set the all-time single-season strikeout record for a pitching staff. The Tigers passed the 2003 Cubs (1,404) and can add to their record total of 1,415 in the season finale.

The Tigers will wrap up the 2013 regular season in Miami this Sunday afternoon at 1 pm before heading out west to Oakland to begin the AL Divisional Series.


With Cleveland's win over Minnesota and Tampa Bay losing to Toronto, the Texas Rangers are now tied with the Rays (90-71) for the 2nd wild card spot while the Indians (91-70) currently hold the 1st and could potentially host the wild card game with a win Sunday. If, for the first time in MLB history, there is a three-way tie between the teams, the first tiebreaker would be played between the Indians and Rays in Cleveland at 4 pm on Monday, with the winner of that game earning a Wild Card berth. The loser would get a second chance and the Rangers in Texas at 4 pm on Tuesday.
