Tigers grab 3-2 lead on Coco Crisp's error

As he stepped into the batter's box, it seemed evident the outcome of Miguel Cabrera's plate appearance would be a turning point, with two on, two out, and towels waving furiously in the stands.

Bob Melvin stuck with lefty Sean Doolittle on the mound and Cabrera flipped a little blooper into short center field that bounced off a hard-charging Coco Crisp's midsection. All Crisp could do was juggle it into the ground. The error scored both baserunners, shifting the momentum.

For now it's the play of the game, but we have time for a better one.
