Detroit Tigers vs. Oakland Athletics: 6 Biggest Matchups in Game 4 of ALDS
Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE
Keeping Prince Fielder at bay is one priority for the A's.

The Oakland Athletics defeated the Detroit Tigers in Game 3 of the ALDS, forcing at least one more game.

But if they want to succeed again and keep the dream alive, certain A's will have to come out victorious in their matchups.

A.J. Griffin is on the mound for Oakland. Max Scherzer takes the hill for the Tigers.

It's been three games of very close battles. So far, the Tigers have outscored the Athletics, 8-7. However, every victory by either team has come by a margin of two runs or less.

Game 4 should be no different.

In such a tight game, it comes down to the matchups. It's all about avoiding being the first to crack, and instead, being the guy or team who takes advantage of a slip.

Here's what to watch for during the Oct. 10 playoff game.
