But Coco Crisp failed to secure a basket catch and both runners raced home, giving the Tigers a sudden 3-2 lead. MLB Network replay showed the ball hitting the heel of Crisp’s glove, rather than the webbing.

Yoenis Cespedes opened the top of the eighth inning with a single, then stole second and third before scoring on a wild pitch by Tigers reliever Joaquin Benoit. Josh Reddick followed with a solo home run.
The A’s are up 4-3 as Game 2 of the ALDS marches into the bottom of the eight. We’ve got a wild one.
