OAKLAND, Calif. -- With the season on the line once more in Oakland, Justin Verlander pitched another Game 5 gem. Verlander carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning and Miguel Cabrera homered to lead the Detroit Tigers past the Athletics 3-0 Thursday night and back into the AL championship series. Joaquin Benoit retired Seth Smith on a fly ball with two on in the ninth to close out the deciding game of their division series. The Tigers became the first team to reach the ALCS in three straight years since the New York Yankees from 1998-2001. Anibal Sanchez will start Game 1 in Boston on Saturday. The Tigers went 4-3 against the Red Sox this year. They have never faced each other in the post-season. Detroit staved off elimination at home in Game 4, overcoming a three-run deficit on Tuesday. Behind Verlander, the Tigers never trailed in the clincher. The big right-hander gave up a clean, two-out single to Yoenis Cespedes in the seventh to end his chance at the third no-hitter in post-season history. The hit hardly fazed him, however. On a night he allowed only three baserunners, Verlander made it a post-season-record 30 straight scoreless innings against one team since Coco Crisp hit a leadoff home run for the As in Game 1 last October. Just 364 days earlier, Verlander tossed a four-hit, 6-0 masterpiece in Game 5 in this very ballpark, a 122-pitch performance for his first career post-season shutout and complete game. He nearly matched that with a spectacular 111-pitch outing in a rematch of his thrilling pitchers duel with rookie Sonny Gray five days earlier in Game 2. "It felt good out there," Verlander said. "Its the first time in a while my changeups been really good. Obviously this lineup with a bunch of left-handed hitters that was a big pitch for me." Aching slugger Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the fourth off with a drive into the left-field seats for his first homer since Sept. 17 and just his third extra-base hit in 99 at-bats. That ended a 20-inning scoreless streak by the Tigers at the Coliseum. Gray danced with danger from the start with stuff not nearly as crisp as just five nights before when he matched zeros with the 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner. This time, Verlander didnt allow a baserunner until Josh Reddick drew a one-out walk in the sixth -- but the no-hit bid remained until Cespedes single the next inning. The hardest hit ball was a fly to the centre-field warning track by Stephen Vogt in the sixth. Verlander struck out 10 in eight innings, giving him 21 Ks in these two starts. He has 43 strikeouts in his four playoff outings against Oakland the past two years. The As saw their season end at the hands of Detroit for the third time in as many postseasons, including in a four-game sweep in the 2006 ALCS. Oakland has lost its last six winner-take-all Game 5s and fell to 1-12 in potential clinchers since 2000. The As struck out 57 times for the most in a best-of-five playoff series. Verlander earned the nod for the decider after Game 1 winner Max Scherzer pitched in relief of an 8-6, season-saving win Game 4 in Detroit. Manager Jim Leyland had no qualms turning again to Verlander, who went 13-12 this season. When asked before the game about his bullpen availability, Leyland nodded his head and quipped, "Verlander, hes available." Gray, meanwhile, looked overmatched this time. He wiped his brow and never looked comfortable. As manager Bob Melvin went with Gray over 18-game winner and 40-year-old Bartolo Colon, who yielded three first-inning runs to lose Game 1. These Game 5s becoming awfully familiar for both sides in their recent October rivalry. Detroit held another clinching party in the visiting clubhouse of the Oakland Coliseum, where a raucous crowd of 46,959 swirled yellow towels until Benoit threw his hands in the air at the final out. Catcher Alex Avila met Benoit in front of the mound for a long embrace as their teammates quickly joined them -- with cheers of "Lets go Oakland!" still ringing out. The Tigers came together near the mound for a unique chant in which they squatted in unison and raised their hands in the air. The 93-win Tigers are determined to take the next step and win a championship after being swept in four games of the 2012 World Series by the San Francisco Giants. "Thats the motivation that weve been looking for, that weve had all year," Verlander said. "Guys like Torii (Hunter) who wasnt a part of our team last year, he comes in and hes got that urge. He wants to win that championship before he retires. Everybody else that was here that had a taste of that last year how much it hurts, its that extra driving factor." The 23-year-old Gray, pitching to chants of "Sonny! Sonny!" in his 12th career start, returned for the sixth inning at 92 pitches but was done once he allowed consecutive singles to Victor Martinez and Jhonny Peralta. Omar Infante then drove in the third run with a fielders choice grounder off Dan Otero. Along the 880 freeway just outside the Coliseum, a billboard blared: "ITS ALWAYS SONNY IN THE TOWN." The only thing sunny was the outfield for the early evening start, which had players shielding their eyes to deal with tricky shadows and sun angles. Center field and right field initially played in bright sun. Rookie starters have lost their last six winner-take-all post-season games since Daisuke Matsuzaka beat Cleveland in the 2007 ALCS for Boston. Grays curveball had less break and he never found the same groove that carried him in his playoff debut. It was a breezy Bay Area night and 19 degrees cooler at first pitch than the 82 degrees in a game starting an hour later Saturday night. This marks another disappointing exit for the low-budget As, who have baseballs 27th smallest payroll at $71.1 million after having the lowest at $59.5 million last year. Both managers tweaked their lineups, most notably in the middle infield with Peralta back at shortstop for Detroit and the As Alberto Callaspo playing second base in his first career post-season start. Peralta, who served a 50-game suspension until late September for his ties to the Biogenesis clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs, hit a three-run homer in Game 4 to help extend Detroits season. NOTES: Verlander tried for just the third no-hitter in post-season history and first since Philadelphias Roy Halladay no-hit Cincinnati on Oct. 6, 2010. Don Larsen pitched a perfect game for the New York Yankees against Brooklyn in the World Series on Oct. 8, 1956. ... Brandon Moss struck out 13 times in 18 at-bats. Detroits Austin Jackson fanned 13 times in 20 at-bats. Jeffrey Bruma Jersey . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos.

Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night.MADISON, Wis. -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses. Count out Marquettes maddeningly frustrating two-minute stretch to open the second half, and coach Buzz Williams believes his team would have had a much better shot at beating No. 8 Wisconsin. Only that the Golden Eagles didnt have an answer for Sam Dekker, the energetic sophomore who had 20 points and 10 rebounds to help the Badgers hold off a late rally for a 70-64 win in the latest entertaining contest between the intrastate rivals. Jamil Wilson scored 22 points, including a 3 from the wing that capped a 10-2 run to draw Marquette (5-4) within three. But Frank Kaminsky then nailed a straightaway 3 with 1:18 left for the Badgers (10-0), who are off to the best start in 20 years. "One stop. I said it as soon as I got in the shower -- one stop away. I said it to myself," Wilson said. "If we wouldve got one stop, or stopped one offensive rebound, just gotten one extra defensive rebound ... One stop and this game wouldve been ours." Williams remembers those early misses to start the second half. Wilson missed a layup. Point guard Derrick Wilson missed a floater. Center Chris Otule misfired on a bucket from less than a foot away. The hustling Badgers pounced for a 7-2 run that quickly extended their lead to eight points Timeout Marquette with 17:59 left. "In that sequence right there ... if you removed those two minutes, the rest of the way we outscored them by one," Williams estimated. Too many misses to overcome, though. Marquette had one last chance after 6-foot-8 Davante Gardner hit a 3 from the wing to get to 68-64 with 4 seconds left. Gardner had muscled his way to the bucket for most of his 16 points. But Josh Gasser closed it out with two foul shots. The Badgers were soon on their way to singing a school anthem in front of the student section to celebrate their first win over Marquette since a 69-64 victory in Milwaukee in 2010. Gasser finished with 10 points and sparked the Badgers with his trademark deffensive hustle.dddddddddddd "Ive always thought coach (Bo) Ryans teams were tough, and they were definitely the toughest team today," Williams said. Ben Brust added 13 points, 10 in the second half. The third member of Wisconsins dependable backcourt, Traevon Jackson, scored 12 after going 6 of 7 from the foul line after halftime, and added seven assists. Up front, Dekker puzzled the Golden Eagles with his inside-out game. He finished 7 of 11 from the field, including 3 of 5 from 3-point range. Advantage Badgers this year in Dekkers hometown of Sheboygan. "The citys pretty split, Marquette-Wisconsin-wise," Dekker said. "To have a chance to get a win tonight and also play well doing that is very gratifying." Dekker found the 7-foot Kaminsky for a dunk off an alley-oop pass early in the second half. Then Kaminsky returned the favour, connecting with his teammate for an alley-oop dunk for a 48-38 lead with about 10 minutes left in the game. Gasser tracked down a loose ball and drove the lane to draw defenders, only to pass to Dekker wide open from the corner for a 3 and an 11-point lead with about 8 minutes left. Dekker might be a go-to guy with the ball, but Gasser is just as important to Wisconsin for his ability to draw charges and guard an opposing teams best player. "Well, you know ... Josh Gasser. Now you guys are going to write that down -- its the shortest answer Ive ever given in the history of questions -- hes a leader," Ryan said. Marquette had experience and muscle in the frontcourt with Gardner, the 6-foot-11 Chris Otule (11 points) and 6-foot-7 Wilson. A 3-point play by Otule off an offensive rebound got Marquette within 57-51 with 3 minutes left. But until the late 3s from Wilson and Gardner, the Golden Eagles rarely took a shot from long range. Marquette played without perhaps its best 3-point shooter, Todd Mayo, who practiced this week but only watched Saturdays game from the bench for what Williams called a violation of team rules.
