Sonny Gray had nothing to show for two strong pitching performances against the Detroit Tigers during the 2013 playoffs. A year later, Oakland's promising young right-hander is still searching for an answer to the American League powerhouse.
Pinch-runner Rajai Davis's decision to steal third base just as Oakland catcher Derek Norris was throwing the ball back to the pitcher caught most everyone by surprise - including several of his Detroit teammates.
One great bunt, one tough inning, and one ace pitcher cost the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night
Bryan Holaday saw an opening and took advantage.
On the night he became the franchise's career leader in total bases, Paul Konerko liked what he saw from some of the younger Chicago White Sox.
Ian Krol was concerned about a possible walk with the bases loaded, so he grooved a pitch to Marcus Semien.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is going to have a difficult time keeping all five of his outfielders happy, because four of them are regulars. And the way Carl Crawford has been hitting lately, it isn't likely he'll get a day off anytime soon.
Brad Ausmus returned to Dodger Stadium for the first time as a major league manager and found the place no different than during his final season as a player. The home team is still getting clutch hits and pulling out dramatic wins.
Don Kelly hit a grand slam and Austin Jackson and Ian Kinsler also homered to lead a Detroit Tigers' split squad over the Toronto Blue Jays 18-4 Tuesday.

Austin Jackson has already bounced around the batting order a bit at spring training, hitting fifth, sixth and even fourth for the Detroit Tigers.

Torii Hunter had a two-run double and Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs after manager Jim Leyland dropped Jackson to eighth in the order and moved everyone else up a place following the Tigers' 1-0 loss in Game 3.
Jim Leyland had finally seen enough.
Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong was lifted with two outs in the sixth, after 104 pitches and his fourth walk of the game.
"I was watching the ball, so I saw it hit him," Jackson said. "It's weird, because you want to stop and check on him, but you have to keep running."
"I think it worked out for the best, for the players and for the teams," Austin Jackson said. "I was excited to get the opportunity and try to get my big league career started, but I was kind of sad to leave a lot of my friends that I made over there."
