Tigers lose to the A's 6-3, trail 2-1 in best-of-five-series

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- Brandon Moss, Josh Reddick and Seth Smith homered for the Oakland Athletics, who chased Anibal Sanchez in the fifth inning and beat the Detroit Tigers 6-3 on Monday for a 2-1 lead in their AL division series.
 
Moss broke a 3-all tie in the fifth with a solo shot, and Smith's two-run drive later in the inning ended Sanchez's day. It was an impressive offensive show after the teams split two tense, low-scoring games in Oakland.

Oakland can close out the series Tuesday.
 
Sanchez, the American League's ERA leader, allowed six runs -- five earned -- and eight hits in 4 1-3 innings.
 
Jarrod Parker gave up three runs in five innings for Oakland, and the Tigers couldn't rally against the bullpen.
