The number of runs allowed by the bullpen. After Price exited, Joba Chamberlain, Tom Gorzelanny and Joakim Soria combined to put away the A’s. The trio allowed two hits, one of which was an infield single.
The number of hits by Anthony Gose. Detroit’s leadoff hitter scored the only run of the game and stole his eighth base of the season. After a first inning single, Gose stole second before advancing to third on a throwing error by Oakland catcher Josh Phegley. He would score on a Rajai Davis sacrifice-fly.
The number of walks drawn by the Tigers. On a day when the offense only mustered six hits, drawing four walks was important. While it didn’t lead to more runs, it gave the team extra opportunities to score.
