Upton and Verlander lead Tigers to 5th straight win

DETROIT (AP) Most big-league managers would have still held on to a sliver of hope as Friday night's game between the Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers came down to its last few moments.

Yes, Nick Buss had just hit what looked like a game-ending double play ball, but Andrelton Simmons was crashing into Detroit shortstop Erick Aybar as he prepared to make the relay to first. If Simmons' clean slide could break up the double play, the Angels would still be alive.

Scioscia, though, knew they wouldn't be. After all, he had been Aybar's manager for 10 years until he was traded last winter.
