OAKLAND - Justin Verlander takes a no-hit bid into the seventh inning to lead the Detroit Tigers to a 3-0 victory over the A's in Oakland in Game 5 of their ALDS. Detroit now meets the Red Sox in the ALCS.
At the very least, the Sox will have to finish the homestand without Hanley Ramirez. That's if they're lucky. If he is lost to them for any extended period, the season could be lost, too.
