Seth Smith homered, doubled and drove in four runs, and the Oakland Athletics avoided a three-game sweep by beating the Detroit Tigers 12-4 Thursday in a matchup of AL playoff contenders.
"I didn't know (if I could score) but I knew was going to go and make them throw me out," Smith said. "I was that situation where you're the winning run and you're already halfway there, and the ball just got by the pitcher, so they have to make at least a decent play to get me out."
