    Tigers right-hander Doug Fister has been uncharacteristically wild in this ALCS Game 1 at Yankee Stadium, allowing three walks through two innings.

    There’s something special about these Athletics. That became apparent throughout the 2012 regular season, and it continued on Wednesday night at Oakland’s O.Co Coliseum with the unlikely American League West champions facing elimination from the ALDS in front of a raucous sold-out home crowd. Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer surrendered just three hits and one (unearned) run…

    Alex Rodriguez has struggled mightily in this ALDS against the O’s, managing just one hit while fanning seven times in 13 plate appearances. So Yankees manager Joe Girardi finally decided to take action in the ninth inning of Game 3 on Wednesday night. Raul Ibanez entered as a pinch-hitter in A-Rod’s spot with the Yankees…

    Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has been dealing with a painful bone bruise in his left ankle since the middle of September. He was able to play through the discomfort over the final few weeks of the regular season, but he might have just aggravated the injury. Jeter fouled a ball off his left foot in…

    Orioles utilityman Ryan Flaherty registered a weak .216/.258/.359 batting line over a total of 167 plate appearances during the regular season. But with these O’s, we’ve come to expect the unexpected. Flaherty launched a solo shot to the right field porch at Yankee Stadium in the third inning of this ALDS Game 3, providing Baltimore…

    brett anderson getty

    A’s left-hander Brett Anderson made only six starts during the regular season and had not pitched since September 19 because of an oblique strain, so there was reason for concern about how he’d fare in Game 3 of the ALDS on Tuesday night against the Tigers. It didn’t take long for those concerns to disappear.…

    Scott Rolen ranks among the best defensive third basemen in major league history and catcher Ryan Hanigan had a fantastic season behind the plate. But baseball can be an incredibly cruel sport.

    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.
