The Oakland A’s and Detroit Tigers AL Divisional Playoff Game 4 could be the final game of the series if the A’s can beat a pitcher they have had recent success against. You can watch the A’s vs Tigers Game 4 online free live streaming on TBS via the link below.
Oakland faced Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Doug Fister back in late August and pounded him for seven runs off 13 hits in only 5 1/3 innings of play. Looking back a little further, Fister has success against the A’s in last year’s ALDS when he beat the A’s after giving up only two runs. In his career, Fister has pitched in five postseason games and owns a fantastic 1.71 ERA during those starts. Despite the August performance against the A’s, Fister will be coming in confident and ready to win at home today.
Today’s game is crucial for the A’s to win so they can avoid facing Max Scherzer in Game 5. Scherzer owned the A’s in Game 1, making them look silly while compiling a huge strikeout total en route to an easy win. Though Game 5 would be played at home, the A’s would just assume we watch ALDS A’s at Tigers Game 4 online free live streaming on TBS as the final game in the series this afternoon.
Oakland will be sending Dan Straily to the mound as their starting pitcher today against the Tigers. Straily finished the regular season with a 10-8 record and 3.96 ERA. He was a key component of the A’s run into the playoffs when he posted a 4-1 record and 2.00 ERA down the stretch. One of those games was against Fister and the Tigers in Comerica Park where he gave up only one run in six innings pitched.
The Tigers looked poised to go up 2-1 with Anibal Sanchez on the mound and pitching at home in Game 3. Yet the A’s found a way to get to him and ultimately won that game 6-3 with their first legitimate offensive production of the series.
