DETROIT - Stephen Vogt lined an RBI single in the ninth inning after rookie Sonny Gray matched zeros with Justin Verlander in a sensational playoff debut that helped the Oakland Athletics beat the Detroit Tigers 1-0 on Saturday night, tying their AL division series at a game apiece.

Yoenis Cespedes and Seth Smith hit back-to-back singles against loser Al Alburquerque to start the winning rally, then Josh Reddick was intentionally walked before Rick Porcello entered to face Vogt. The AL West champion A's had eight walk-off wins during the regular season, then did it again at the perfect time on baseball's October stage.

Grant Balfour pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for the win.
