As expected, the A's will turn to lefty Brett Anderson to halt the Tigers in Game 3 of the American League Division Series on Tuesday and save his team from elimination. Anderson, 24, has been sidelined by a right oblique strain since Sept. Oakland, down 0-2 to Detroit in the best-of-five series, also announced that righty rookie A.J. Griffin will start a potential Game 4 on Wednesday at Oakland Coliseum. 19, but for days he's deemed himself healthy enough to aid in his club's first postseason run since 2006. The southpaw logged a 4-2 record and 2.57 ERA allowing just 10 earned runs with 25 strikeouts in 35 innings in six starts during the regular season, most of which he spent rehabbing from Tommy John surgery.
