Set an Email Reminder for ALDS: Oakland Athletics at Detroit Tigers
When: Tuesday, October 8, 2013
The results from the game on Monday afternoon means that one of these two teams is facing elimination in this one. Obviously that team will have a bit more pressure than the team leading the series, but that doesn't mean Game 5 is something the series leader wants, so they will be pushing hard for the win as well. The scheduled starters are fourth in the rotation, so not the best for either team, but the schedule means nothing when a team is facing elimination, so either team, or both, is likely to make a change before the game gets started.
