The Detroit Tigers and Oakland Athletics face off for a winner takes all Game 5 on Thursday night. With nothing between the teams and with the series currently locked at 2-2 it is anyone's guess who will take this one. The game starts at 9.37 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream via one of the packages described below.
The Tigers will be panicking slightly coming into Game 5, having thrown away a commanding 2-0 lead in the series, they must now be worried the momentum has switched fully over to the A's, and that may be difficult to turn around.
Meanwhile Oakland will be delighted with taking the series this far, having looked prime candidates to be dumped out of the postseason schedule, they will be dreaming of finishing off the comeback tonight and hoping that can now be the ones to advance to the ALCS.
As the teams fight it out for the American League Division Series, there are a number of key match-ups that could decide everything.
The result could rest on how well Jarrod Parker does against the Tigers' big hitters. He pulled off a fantastic job in Game 1, shutting down Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and Delmon Young. He will come into this decider feeling confident he can repeat the feat., but Detroit's big three will be looking to set the record straight and bash Parker out of the game.
