On October 12, 2013 — For the first time in baseball history, two playoff games on the same day end with the score of 1-0. In Game One of the ALCS, the Tigers blank Boston at Fenway Park with the contest’s lone run scoring on Jhonny Peralta’s sac fly in the sixth, and Jon Jay’s fifth-inning sacrifice fly at Busch Stadium provides the only tally the Cardinals will need to take a 2-0 game advantage to Los Angeles in the NLCS.
