The Detroit Tigers sent ace Justin Verlander to the mound tasked with the difficult assignment of shutting down a resilient Oakland A's team.

Verlander was dominant throughout his complete game shutout of the "Miracle A's" and finally brought a close to Oakland's improbable season.

The Tigers lineup touched up Oakland's rookie starter Jarrod Parker for a pair of runs in the third inning and added a four run rally in the seventh to seal their trip to the American League Championship Series, where they'll meet the winner of Game 5 between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles.

Here are the final grades from Game 5.
