Around the MLB Playoffs: October 12 Edition

News and notes from around the playoffs:

Yesterday's action:

  • Detroit trimmed its deficit in the ALCS to one game with an impressive 5-2 victory over Texas last night at Comerica Park. The Rangers plated a run in the top of the first against Tigers righty Doug Fister, but Fister settled in nicely after that, holding Texas to seven hits and two runs over 7.1 effective innings (102 pitches, three strikeouts, no walks). Meanwhile, the Detroit offense woke up after sleepwalking through the first three innings of the game: Victor Martinez knotted the game at 1 with a solo homer in the fourth, Miggy Cabrera doubled home a run in the fifth to give the Tigers the lead, and the Tigers salted the game away with solo homers from Jhonny Peralta in the sixth and Cabrera in the eighth. Jose Valverde worked around a leadoff double from Josh Hamilton to close out the Rangers in the ninth.
The LCS standings read like this:
  • Texas 2, Detroit 1.
  • Milwaukee 1, St. Louis 1.
