Jose Valverde did not complete the ninth inning of Game 4 against the A's. Oakland rallied for three runs on four hits to even the series at two games apiece.

After the game, Valverde said it was the toughest moment of his career. He said a few other things, too, including this response, that seems to be: "I know 100 percent my teams win tomorrow."
