a's clubhouse..and if it ner opens, the a's will look bat the champagne is going to remain here until the a's do something. center yeah -- yeah, hopefully tomorrow. but the a's will look back at game four, a huge opportunity missed. it was tied at 3 in the 7th when coco crisp rips a single up the middle. they knocked it out of the bullpen in this must-win game for detroit. a's up 4-3. coco could taste the bubblely, but not so fast. victor martinez gets it, due to the fast ball and scores for
11:29 pm
the home run. explaning that the fan interfered. take a look at it after the extensive reviews, they confirmed that home run and the game was tied at 4. later in the inning, austin jackson was 1-14 with 10 strikeouts. look at this. a broken bat facing them here and the tigers, they lead 5-4. the top of the 8th, loading up the bases, nobodying out. striking him out on what would have been ball four and a tiedgame. then he strikes him out on a fast ball and he lines out to the center field. bases loaded, nobody out and the a's did not score. tigers without insurance end up winning 8-6, setting up the stage for a winner takes all game five. they went ahead. >> that's stuff you dream about pitching, you know, bases loaded, no outs, able to get out of it. somehow tonight i was able to do it. >> the ruling that i understand is once it goes over the yellow line it is anybody's ball.

11:31 pm
look at them. they had about 11 minutes to make it count near the goals to get the hat trick to make it 7- 2 and there is the hat. now, they saved the best for last. look at that goal in front of their mom and girlfriend. and he's the youngest to score four goals in the nhl since 1988. the sharks win 9-2 for the big hurdle remembering his name. because right now he's the hottest name ever in hockey. >> yes, what a great shot. >> more of that shot, you know, might end up being the goal of the year. >> called the hurdle at 19. >> that's perfect. >> i love it. >> yes. that's why you're the anchor man. >> never seen before. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,
