The Detroit Tigers have beaten the Oakland Athletics to make Major League Baseball's American League Championship Series for the third year in a row.

The 3-0 win in the deciding game five booked the visiting Tigers a trip to Boston for Sunday's start of a best-of-seven series against the Red Sox to produce the American League representative in the World Series.

The National League Championship Series pits the St. Louis Cardinals against the Los Angeles Dodgers beginning on Saturday.
