From two out and nobody on base in the ninth, the Tigers scored two runs to force extra innings.
It started with an infield single by Austin Jackson. Shortstop Elvis Andrus made a pickup deep in the hole and had a chance to end the game, but first baseman Justin Smoak couldn't secure the low throw. Could Chris Davis have held on?
It would be a moot question had not Johnny Damon doubled to right, followed by a two-run single by Magglio Ordonez to tie the score, 4-4.
Maybe the Rangers' closer role is cursed. The Rangers are batting in the ninth.
