Retweet of the Day - October 9, 2013

The Detroit Tigers staved off elimination from the American League Division Series, outlasting the Oakland Athletics in an 8-6 thriller in Game 4 at Comerica Park. The pivotal point in the game came in the top of the 8th inning, in which the Tigers led, 5-4, but the A's had the bases loaded with no outs against probable American League Cy Young winner Max Scherzer on the mound.

The result for the next three A's batters? Josh Reddick (.226, 12 HR, 56 RBI): whiff! Stephen Vogt (.252, 4 HR, 16 RBI): whiff! Alberto Callaspo (.258, 10 HR, 58 RBI): line out to center. Runs scored: NONE!

Max Scherzer danced out of danger in the way that only a potential Cy Young award winner could, prompting today's retweet, from Barrett Weyneth ‏(@barrettweyneth):

"Max Scherzer: Escape From Alcatraz. #Tigers"

No, he is not overreacting!
