3 innings in the books, tied 1-1 as for the second time in the series the A's score in the top half and can't get a shutdown inning. I'm telling you, if the A's take the lead at any point, you can go to Cook, Doolittle, Balfour anytime. Even if it's the 4th, you could get 2 IPs each from those guys and you have a day off tomorrow. Don't hesitate, Newbob.

First of all, counter intuitive as it may seem, this is not a "must win". It's a "MAN would it be good to win this one." However, even if the A's were to lose today, they would simply be where they were Monday: Needing to sweep a tough 3-game series at home, which they did.
In a 5-game series, where any 3-game winning streak takes the series, you can have your backs to the wall and still be right in it. However...A's fans will enjoy the rest of their weekend quite a bit more if Oakland can get out of Detroit with a split.
Hopefully Tommy Milone is a "morning person". He gets the ball for this ridiculous "Oh hey, let's play a game at 9:00am and not put it on regular TV" affair. The Tigers counter with Doug Fister ("Barely knew her!) (STILL FUNNY). As Josh Donaldson demonstrated yesterday with his 410 foot out to CF, this is not a bad ballpark for Milone.
