Tigers vs. Athletics, 2012 ALDS Game 4: Time, TV schedule, starting pitchers and more

Jim Cowsert-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The A's staved off elimination with a 2-0 win on Tuesday night. A.J. Griffin takes to the hill to try and even up the series against the Tigers on Wednesday.

Brett Anderson powered the Oakland Athletics to their first win of the AL Divisional Series on Tuesday night against the Detroit Tigers, but the A's still remain one loss away from elimination.

Anderson pitched six solid innings and the bullpen combined to shutout the Tigers 2-0. Seth Smith hit a solo home run for a bit of offense and the A's defense assisted the pitching with some spectacular catches. Rookie A.J. Griffin gets the his first playoff start of his career. He was a little off in his last start on Oct. 3, a game the A's won against the Rangers 12-5. Griffin struggled however, only lasting 2.2 innings while giving up five runs off of seven hits. He is 7-1 with a 3.06 ERA since joining the club in June.

Max Scherzer looks to slam the door on the A's postseason as he makes the third postseason start of his career. The hard throwing Scherzer finished the regular season 16-7 with a 3.74 ERA and 231 strikeouts. He led MLB in strikeouts per nine innings at 11.078. He was especially good as the year closed down, going 6-1 from August on with an ERA just over 2.00 and 80 strikeouts.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:37 PT, 9:37 ET and will be broadcast nationwide on TNT.
