Game 4 of the American League Division Series was an instant classic for the Oakland Athletics, as they rallied from a two-run deficit to defeat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 and force a pivotal Game 5. 

After the Tigers earned a 2-0 lead, Oakland earned a run back on an error by Prince Fielder, which ultimately led to a run being scored.

Later on in the eighth inning, Avisail Garcia got a pinch hit one-run single to give the Tigers a two-run cushion. 

Jose Valverde came on for the Tigers in the ninth inning and proceeded to give Oakland two quick runs, which would lead to a game-winning single by Coco Crisp.

Here are the grades for each team following a fantastic finish for this young Oakland A's squad and the heartbreaking burnout for the Detroit Tigers.
