03:34 PM ET 10.08 | Detroit Tigers pitcher Al Alburquerque got creative in Game 2 as he literally sealed Detroit's win with a kiss. After he snagged a come-backer to the mound with two outs in the ninth, Alburquerque smooched the ball before tossing it to first baseman Prince Fielder for the final out of the A's half of the inning. Detroit would go on to load the bases and walk off on a sacrifice fly, securing a 2-0 series lead. But the A's aren't done letting the Tigers reliever know that what he did won't be soon forgotten.

The Tigers, with a win in Game 3, would have a big advantage against the Orioles or Yankees as they would allow Verlander to rest for Game 1.It could get interesting, fellas.

The Tiggers are playing good baseball right now. I'm thinking they the team to beat in the AL right now.

Yankees haven't beat the Tigers in their last two meetings, but I'm still thinking the Bombers will pull this out against the Os.

The O's pitching is just too shaky. I'm a Yankee hater but I think they will blow past the O's in 4. I'd like to see a Yankees - Tigers ALCS. That would be some good baseball.
