Detroit Tigers vs. Oakland A's: How Tigers Will Silence Oakland to Advance
According to Elias, the last 22 teams to go down 0-2 in a best-of-five have lost the series.
This also from Elias, stating that the Athletics haven't won an elimination game in five tries. A rational person would say that past seasons have no bearing on the current one, but it is certainly a stat that is concerning for the Athletics and may extend because of other more rational reasons.
Despite the Oakland Athletics great feel-good season where they took down the mighty Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, they now face a huge uphill climb. After two close ones in Detroit, Anibal Sanchez will have a chance to end the A's season.
