A's Set to Host Tigers for Game 1 in ALCS


Oakland, CA - The stage is set for Game #1 in the American League Tuesday night.

The Oakland Athletics and Detroit Tigers set to square off in Oakland. Both teams will be using their Game-One starters from the division series, with Nate Robertson on the mound for the Tigers against Barry Zito.

Robertson was tagged with the Tigers' only loss in their series win over the New York Yankees, allowing seven runs over five and two-thirds. Robertson faced the A's twice in July, going 1-and-1 while allowing nine earned runs in 14 innings.

Zito led Oakland to a 3-and-2 win over Minnesota last week, holding the Twins to one run and just four hits over eight innings.
