On October 12, 2013 — Anibal Sanchez becomes the second person in postseason history to strike out four batters in an inning when he whiffs Jacoby Ellsbury, Shane Victorino (who gets on base on a passed ball), David Ortiz, and Mike Napoli in the first frame of Detroit’s 1-0 ALCS victory over the Red Sox at Fenway Park. The 29 year-old right-hander, who matches Cubs right-hander Orval Overall’s total in Game 5 of the 1908 Fall Classic, is also the first Tiger hurler to accomplish the feat in franchise history, including the regular season.
