Oakland needs to win this game as they are down 2-0 to the Tigers. Sanchez has pitched well for the Tigers, especially in the last three starts, posting a 2.57 ERA. The Coliseum is one of the toughest places to hit in the major leagues. You can be a flyball pitcher and succeed in this park, even against a power-hitting team like the Tigers. Oakland gets a strong pitching performance from Brett Andreson but also has problems hitting Sanchez.
