The MLB is back in action today as the Detroit Tigers will clash with the Oakland Athletics at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California. This is the final game of a three-game series. These teams have split the first two games of this series.

The Tigers managed to win the first game of the series and that was their second win in a row.
However, Detroit lost game two of this series by a score of 10-2 and it is back to losing for them. Detroit currently owns the worst record in the league and they are 45.5 games out of first place in the American League Central. This team has been suffering for the past few years and it The Tigers are now at 24-49 on the road for the year.

The Athletics are involved in a close race with the Tampa Bay Rays and Cleveland Indians for the last two playoff spots in the American League. Also, Oakland lost game one of this series and that was hard for them as Detroit is the worst team in the league. But the A’s were able to bounce back on Saturday as they won by a score of 10-2. Therefore, they have a chance to clinch that wildcard spot in the next few series. The A’s are now 47-27 here at home.
