    Reds right-hander Homer Bailey tossed a no-hitter on September 28 against the Pirates. Only 11 days later, he’s been almost equally as dominant. And on a much grander stage.

    Don Kelly

    The Tigers designated Don Kelly for assignment in early August. And now he’s a postseason hero.

    Tigers starter Doug Fister has been pretty sharp this afternoon at a chilly Comerica Park, boasting eight strikeouts through seven innings against the A’s. But leadoff walks are murder. And the one Fister just issued to Seth Smith could be a real haunter. Smith was sacrificed over to second by George Kottaras then scored on a…
