Raise your hand if you've seen this story before.

The Detroit Tigers and the Oakland Athletics are prepping for a winner-take-all Game 5 in Oakland on Thursday (8:07 p.m. ET, TBS) for the chance to go to the American League Championship Series.

The A's will look to avenge last season's ALDS Game 5 loss to Detroit when the Tigers won behind Justin Verlander's four-hit shutout in Oakland.

This has been the most exciting back-and-forth series thus far in the 2013 MLB postseason and is the last one left that has yet to crown a winner.

The Tigers will again send Verlander to the mound, while the A's will counter with rookie Sonny Gray.

Here are the keys for both teams in this do-or-die ALDS Game 5.
