OAKLAND --  Oakland Athletics' Stephen Vogt hit a bases-loaded single in the ninth inning after rookie Sonny Gray matched zeros with Justin Verlander in a sensational playoff debut, that helped Oakland win over the Tigers 1-0 on Saturday night. The AL division series is now tied with one game apiece.

This was Vogt's first career game winning hit that came after he lost a 10-pitch battle with Verlander in the seventh for his third strikeout of the night.

Grant Balfour pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for the win, but it was Gray and Vogt who took the win and gets a pie-in-the-face. 

Game 3 is Monday afternoon in Detroit.
