Anibal Sanchez did everything but finish the game.
After being shut down by Anibal Sanchez all night, the Oakland Athletics were happy finally to get a chance at Detroit's bullpen in the ninth.

As much as Scott Kazmir won over Oakland fans with his dazzling debut, new Athletics closer Jim Johnson is losing them with another ninth-inning meltdown.
"As a fan that was a fun game to watch right there. It was," Kazmir said. "Throughout the whole game Anibal and I were just battling it out, out for out. We ended up getting a couple of baserunners up in the ninth and Donaldson comes up. You just kind of had that feeling when he came up to be honest with you. He saw that first pitch and didn't miss it. It was awesome."
"He looked back and thought I was going to break and I didn't have any plans to," he said.
