Davis has game-winning grand slam for Tigers

DETROIT — Rajai Davis hit his third career grand slam with one out in the ninth inning, giving the Detroit Tigers a 5-4 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Monday night.

Oakland closer Sean Doolittle (2-2) was given a three-run lead to work with in the ninth, but only managed one out. Nick Castellanos and Alex Avila started the inning with singles. Eugenio Suarez struck out but Doolittle walked Austin Jackson — just the second walk he has issued this season — to load the bases.

Doolittle then missed the strike zone with a curveball, then hung another one over the middle of the plate. Davis didn't make any mistakes, hitting his first career walkoff homer down the left field line.

Detroit's rally took Anibal Sanchez off the hook — he allowed two earned runs in seven innings to extend his unbeaten streak to 10 starts.

Blaine Hardy (1-0) earned his first career victory with a scoreless top of the ninth.
