Detroit Tigers beat Oakland A’s 3-0 in Game 5 to win ALDS

Posted: Updated:

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Justin Verlander pitched another Game 5 gem in Oakland while carrying a no-hit bid into the seventh inning, and Miguel Cabrera homered to lead the Detroit Tigers past the Athletics 3-0 Thursday night and back into the AL championship series.
    
Joaquin Benoit retired Seth Smith on a fly ball with two on in the ninth to close out the deciding game of their division series. The Tigers became the first team to reach the ALCS in three straight years since the New York Yankees from 1998-2001.
    
Game 1 is Saturday in Boston. The Tigers went 4-3 against the Red Sox this year.
    
Verlander gave up a clean, two-out single to Yoenis Cespedes in the seventh to end his chance at the third no-hitter in postseason history. The hit hardly fazed him, however.
    
Verlander made it a postseason-record 30 straight scoreless innings against one team. He struck out 10 in eight innings.
