The Detroit Tigers worked hard during the season to shore up their vulnerable bullpen, and they made measurable improvement. Despite those efforts, a lack of dependable relief arms took a dramatic toll Sunday.

Within two innings of taking a 2-0 series lead in the ALCS back to their home field of Comerica Park, the Tigers gave up a 5-1 advantage.

Jose Veras got the first shot out of the bullpen. He induced a ground out from the first batter and then allowed a double. He promptly got the hook.
