RHP Sonny Gray will make his first career postseason appearance Saturday when he faces the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 of their American League Division Series at the O.co Coliseum. Gray (5-3) will become the sixth rookie in Oakland history to start a postseason game. In his final four regular-season starts, Gray went 3-0 with a 3.00 ERA. He struck out 23 and walked nine during that stretch, taking full advantage of his two best pitches, a mid-90s fastball and a sharp-breaking curve. This will mark Gray's first career appearance against Detroit.
