UPDATES & NEWS
Justin Verlander did his part Saturday night as he shutout the A's over seven innings allowing just four hits, one walk, and struck out 11 in the no-decision, but it was not enough as the Tigers eventually lost 1-0 as the A's evened the series at a game apiece.
Verlander did his part to put the Tigers in a position to win, but the Tigers' bats were silenced by just as an impressive start by A's rookie Sonny Gray. JV retired the first 11 batters he faced and had seven strikeouts in the first four innings of Saturday's game.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
