Athletics 8, Tigers 6
DETROIT — Coco Crisp and Daric Barton drove in two runs each to lead the Athletics, who moved two games ahead of the Indians for the second AL wild card. Barton had a tiebreaking single in Oakland's two-run sixth inning, and Crisp hit a solo homer during his three-hit performance. A.J. Griffin labored through five-plus innings but managed to win for the first time since July 29. Miguel Cabrera homered for the Tigers.
