Tigers lineup: Dixon Machado getting rare start at 2nd base

Tigers lineup: Dixon Machado getting rare start at 2nd base

"I was kind of reading Justin Upton's body language out there, whether he was running out of room or not", Healy said. "I think he's going to be right back at it tomorrow and be great again".

So much so, that the Tigers manager has kept penning him into the lineup against right-handed pitchers, despite a batting average nearing.100.

He walked leadoff batter Rajai Davis, who scored the tying run on a smoked double to left-center by Jed Lowrie.

Alonso crushed a solo home run into the right-center field seats with one out in the bottom of the fourth.

This past week I reverted into self-protection mode, preparing myself for another loss as MLB At Bat updated rather than see hopes of an upturn dashed.

Clement says keeping Swansea in the PL would be massive
Swansea head to Sunderland next weekend where the players will cover the travel costs of 3,000 away fans. As for Everton , their season seems to be finishing on a low note.

But with wounds still raw after the Tigers lost a 5-4 lead with two out in the ninth Saturday, Saturday's victim, Rodriguez, trotted to the mound in a bid to redeem himself, and spare his team any of the trauma sustained Saturday. Healy struck the final blow, but there were plenty of other heroes as the A's improved to 14-17.

James McCann has more home runs (6) than singles (4) this season.

Gray is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in three career regular-season starts against the Tigers.

Healy's game-ending heroics came less than 24 hours after Adam Rosales hit a two-out, two-run single off Rodriguez in the ninth inning to beat the Tigers. Victor Martinez grounded an RBI single inside of third base to left field, beating the shift, to make it 4-3 and end Gray's day.

Three Tigers relievers combined to retire seven straight batters after Zimmermann left with one out in the sixth before Rodriguez's two-out meltdown in the ninth.

UNESCO ratifies Jerusalem resolution slammed by Israel
This resolution essentially turns a blind eye to Jewish identity in Jerusalem and allows for more Palestinian criticism of Israel. After the new cut announced by Netanyahu on Wednesday, Israel is set to pay just $2.7 million in membership fees annually.

Keeping the Tigers at bay were rookie right-hander Bobby Wahl, who pitched two scoreless innings, and Santiago Casilla, who worked a 1-2-3 ninth and evened his record at 1-1. "He'll probably flip-flop between right field and DH for a few days, a couple or three or four days", Ausmus said. We're just a bunch of guys that just don't quit. But what stood out most about Oakland's second walk-off win in a row was how many people it took to bring it to fruition. Melvin said after that game that his young infielder needs to know how to best channel his passion, but that he never wants to take away the fire that Healy plays the game with. "He can't wait for those".

Athletics: RHP Kendall Graveman (2-2) faces the Angels for the third time this season on Monday in the opener of a three-game series at the Coliseum. "So having that big win yesterday really just made us all realize how fun it should be and can be, and to be able to repeat it today is special and we should be able to carry that (momentum) into the next series". "When you're playing well you show up to the park the next day and there's a different energy in the clubhouse".

The Tigers scored an early run on a Nick Castellanos excuse-me, check-swing double inside the first base line in the top of the third inning, but the Athletics got to Norris for four runs in the next two innings.

Wins on the field feel all the more important, whilst all the harder to obtain, with A's players dropping like flies.
