Athletics Get Close Win Over Tigers
The Oakland Athletics had to overcome a big game from Detroit left fielder Yusniel Diaz to leave O.co Coliseum with a 7-3 victory. Diaz went 3-3 with a home run, a double, and a walk. He scored 2 runs and drove in 2. The Athletics, at 49-62, sit in third place in the American League Western Division.

Had Jorge García not delivered a key base hit in the bottom of the eighth, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and the bases loaded, García hit a grand slam. That made the score 7-3, in favor of the Athletics.

"We put a lot of pressure on ourselves," García told a Oakland Times reporter. "Sometimes we need just to relax."
