OAKLAND, CA (WKZO) -- After scaring fans with a couple losses in the middle, the Tigers won the American League Division Series with a 3-0 victory over the Athletics.

Justin Verlander made it all the way to the bottom of the 8th, and gave up only a two-out single. This is the second straight year that Verlander and company got a game-5 win over Oakland to advance to the ALCS.

They head to Boston to play the Red Sox, who they were 4-3 against this season. Boston just defeated Tampa Bay in four games, 3-1, with the final game being this past Tuesday. Game one of the American League Division Series is Saturday, first pitch is at 8:07 PM on 590 AM.
