A’s starter Jarrod Parker nearly pitched his way around a one-out double from the Tigers’ Omar Infante in the bottom of the third inning of this ALDS Game 1, but the Oakland right-hander misplayed a Quintin Berry slow-roller near the first base bag and the potential third out turned into Detroit’s go-ahead score when Infante bolted home from second base.

Parker then walked Miguel Cabrera before getting out of the frame on a nice running catch in shallow center field by second baseman Cliff Pennington.

Detroit leads Oakland 2-1 as the fourth inning gets underway at a chilly Comerica Park.

Tigers ace Justin Verlander is already up to 61 pitches, so that warrants monitoring as the night rolls on.
