Excerpt: "A Classic"
"Were 'postseason baseball' a dictionary entry, the illustration next to it would be a shot from the O.co Coliseum taken last night: a crowd in full throat, a pitcher commanding the scene, the basepaths clear, the batters befuddled, fingernails chewed, the scoreboard devoid of integers. The A's 1-0, walkoff win over the Tigers was three hours of edge-of-your-seat tension as Sonny Gray and Justin Verlander hung zeroes, pitched out of jams and gave us the first great game of the 2013 playoffs."
