The Oakland Athletics came into tonight's American League Division Series Game 3 in a familiar situation.
With their backs against the wall.
After a roller-coaster regular season, the A's found themselves facing adversity yet again, down 2-0 to the Detroit Tigers. The unexpected AL West winners would have been eliminated from the playoffs if they didn't win Tuesday's Game 3, but the A's shutout the Tigers 2-0, and forced Game 4.
The Tigers still lead the series 2-1 and will try again on Wednesday night to close out the series, and advance to the ALCS.
