After a shutout win in ALDS Game 3 on Tuesday night, the Oakland Athletics will again host the Detroit Tigers in Game 4 on Wednesday evening at 9:30 p.m. ET. Live television coverage from O.co Coliseum will be provided by TNT. First pitch is scheduled for 9:37 p.m.
The A's need another win to stave off elimination and force a Game 5. They were hoisted to victory in Game 2 by a great starting performance by Brett Anderson. Anderson was helped by his defense, in particular a home-run-saving catch by Coco Crisp early in the ballgame, and his bullpen allowed just two hits scattered across the final three innings.
Oakland will take the field behind starting pitcher A.J. Griffin in Game 4. Griffin went 7-1 with a 3.06 ERA in 2012. The Tigers will counter with Max Scherzer, who compiled a 16-7 record and a 3.74 ERA this regular season.
