Tigers push across insurance run, lead 3-1 in 8th

Considering how the A's have been hitting in this series, the Tigers' 2-1 lead actually looked pretty safe. But in the top of the eighth, they ripped three singles against Sean Doolittle and made it 3-1.

Omar Infante opened the frame with a single, and moved to second on Austin Jackson's sacrifice bunt. With Quintin Berry due next, Jim Leyland sent up rookie Avisail Garcia to pinch-hit, and he came through with a sharp single to right field, Infante scoring easily. After another base hit, Ryan Cook trotted in from the bullpen and extinguished the fire. But now the A's chore is doubly hard: they're down 3-1, their season perhaps down to its last six outs.
