Austin Jackson drove in the only run of the game with a double in the fifth inning as the Detroit Tigers closed out the regular season with a 1-0 win in Kansas City. Max Scherzer went the first four innings and looked strong. Luis Marte tossed three and a third innings of shutout relief to get the win and rookie Luke Putkonen earned his first career save. The Tigers will play Oakland in the first round of the playoffs. Games one and two of the best-of-five series are in Detroit on Saturday and Sunday. The final three games of the series are in Oakland next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
