ALDS: Late Heroics Give Tigers 2-0 Series Lead; Yankees Break Open Tight Series Opener In Ninth Inning

Two games were played on Sunday in American League divisional playoff series action.

At Detroit:

Don Kelly, who scored the tying run on a wild pitch in the eighth inning, hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the ninth inning that carried the Detroit Tigers to a 5-4 home victory over the Oakland Athletics in game two of their best-of-five divisional playoff series.  The Tigers, who lead the series two games to none, can finish off the Athetics with a victory in Oakland on Tuesday.

At Baltimore:

In a game that was delayed by two-and-a-half hours by rain, the New York Yankees broke open a deadlocked game with five runs in their half of the ninth inning, starting with Russell Martin's lead-off solo homer, to ruin the Baltimore Orioles' first home playoff game since 1997, winning the opening contest of their divisional playoff series 7-2.
