The Armada will face the Baie-Comeau Drakkar in Round 3.John Collins Jersey . Hamelin overcame a weak start to win bronze in the 500-metre race behind winner Wu Dajing of China and American J.R. Celski on Saturday at the world short track speed skating championship. Mike Bibby Jersey . Winnipeg trailed by five points in the final minute when quarterback Drew Willy completed a 13-play, 75-yard drive with Feoli-Gudinos 18-yard touchdown catch on third down to lift the Bombers to a 34-33 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Friday night.DETROIT - In an AL Central race that went down to the last day, Detroits extra ace made the final difference.David Price pitched the Tigers to their fourth straight division title with the type of performance they acquired him for, taking a shutout into the eighth inning of a 3-0 victory over Minnesota on Sunday. Detroit clinched the championship while second-place Kansas City was still playing in Chicago against the White Sox. The Royals ended up winning to finish one game behind the Tigers.It felt good to be able to step up, Price said in Detroits jubilant clubhouse after the game. These guys have done a great job of making me feel a part of the team, especially in the locker room and the dugout.The Tigers face the Orioles in an AL division series. Game 1 is in Baltimore on Thursday.Price (15-12) came to the Tigers from Tampa Bay in a blockbuster deal moments before the trade deadline, but what looked like a dream rotation for Detroit never fully materialized. Anibal Sanchez and Justin Verlander dealt with injuries, while Price, Rick Porcello and defending Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer all had their share of shaky outings.The Tigers wrapped up at least a wild card during the final week, but the division remained in doubt, especially when Minnesota pounded Detroit pitching for 23 runs over two games Friday and Saturday. Then Price took the mound and allowed only four hits in 7 1-3 innings in the finale.He was unbelievable, said manager Brad Ausmus, who guided the Tigers to a first-place finish in his first season after taking over for Jim Leyland. On a day where we needed an enormous outing after giving up 20-something runs over the previous two, he stepped right up. He showed why hes a true No. 1.Joba Chamberlain relieved Price in the eighth, and Joe Nathan finished for his 35th save in 42 chances. Nathan has been a target of frustrated fans throughout the season, finishing with a 4.81 ERA, but with the Twins down to their final out, the home crowd was chanting Lets go, Joe! at Comerica Park.The only thing I can keep doing to help this city, to help this team, to help myself, was keep fighting and know I was going to get better, Nathan said. I continue to thank everybody for their support. ... A challenging year, but Im so happy to be where we are.Nathan retired Oswaldo Arcia on a foul popup to end it, and the Tigers spilled onto the field to celebrate in front of a delighted crowd at Comerica. Ersan Ilyasova Jersey. . Detroit hadnt clinched a division title at home since 1987 a€” and this game was eerily similar to that one for a while.Detroit won 1-0 in that 87 clincher at Tiger Stadium, with Frank Tanana pitching a shutout. Price throws nothing like the soft-tossing Tanana, but the 29-year-old left-hander etched his own name into Tigers lore Sunday.Over the last four years, Detroits most triumphant moments have generally occurred on the road. The only exception was in 2012, when the Tigers finished off the New York Yankees at Comerica to win the American League pennant.Ive been very fortunate to be here and be a part of so many celebrations, Scherzer said. Any time you can do it in front of your fans and let them experience the energy as well, theres nothing like it.Detroit started the season 27-12, and the Tigers looked like heavy favourites in the division after acquiring Price, but they ended up in a tight race throughout September.Weve been kind of envisioning this type of celebration for a few days now, Ausmus said. Kansas City has played extremely well this last week a€” and really pushed us to the limit.Minnesotas Kyle Gibson (13-12) nearly matched Price, but Ian Kinsler homered in the third to open the scoring. Kinsler added an RBI single in the eighth to chase Gibson, and Torii Hunter followed with a sacrifice fly to make it 3-0.That was a fun day. It was definitely a playoff atmosphere against a team thats pretty good and David Price on the other side, Gibson said. There was definitely a lot of positives today. But I wish I wouldve finished that eighth inning a little bit differently.Price struck out eight with two walks and passed Clevelands Corey Kluber for this years major league lead in strikeouts with 271.There was an audible groan from the crowd when Ausmus pulled Price in the eighth after 112 pitches, but Chamberlain and Nathan retired the last five Minnesota batters without a hitch.Now Detroit will try to reach the AL championship series for the fourth straight season as well. The Tigers have not won the World Series since 1984.TRAINERS ROOMTigers OF Rajai Davis sat out after leaving the previous game with a sprain around his midsection, but trainer Kevin Rand said he was very encouraged by the fact that Davis was feeling pretty good before the game Sunday.UP NEXTThe Tigers went 5-1 against the Orioles during the regular season. Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
