couldn have asked for a better series, said Boston manager John Farrell. tested everything we had and pushed us to the limits. Tigers scored twice to take the lead in the sixth to knock out Buchholz but some horrendously comical baserunning by Prince Fielder prevented them from putting together a big inning.
The Tigers came right back in the top of the sixth. Having just been handed a lead, Buchholz needed a shutdown inning and promptly walked the first man he faced, Torii Hunter. When Miguel Cabrera followed with a solid single to left, Farrell went with the quick hook, a move he may have regretted later. Through the first five innings, Buchholz had limited the Tigers to four base runners and none of them had advanced past first base.
two on, nobody out jam. He then bore down and got David Ortiz on a fly ball to left, fanned Mike Napoli and induced a harmless pop up from the bat of Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Jhonny Peralta then hit a grounder to second baseman Pedroia. Fielder broke off third and probably would have made it home if he had kept running because Pedroia became engaged with Cabrera running between first and second.
The Red Sox, who went 86 years from 1918 until 2004 between World Series victories, added another in 2007 and will now challenge the St. Louis Cardinals in the Fall Classic that starts in Boston on Wednesday.
Leyland. thought both teams played well all series. We had some blunders tonight but it was a tough series. They deserve to be the representatives. Starting with me, the coaches, the players, we just didn do quite enough. game was a classic pitchers duel early on between Boston Clay Buchholz and Detroit Max Scherzer. They exchanged zeroes through the first four innings before the Red Sox scored in the fifth.
With the stain of last season 69 win disaster now a faded memory, its place taken by a team populated by new heroes like Shane Victorino and Xander Bogaerts, the Red Sox dismissed the Detroit Tigers 5 2 in explosive comeback fashion Saturday to win the American League Championship Series in six games.
That brought Victorino to the plate in a 2 for 24 funk to face a new reliever, Jose Veras. Veras delivered a called strike, then Victorino fouled off his next offering. Veras next pitch was right down Main Street and Victorino slammed it into the seats atop Fenway Park Green Monster in left field as a crowd of 38,823 and millions of others all over New England, went wild.
Despite that, Farrell brought in lefty Franklin Morales to face a struggling Prince Fielder and Morales promptly walked him on four pitches to load the bases, still with nobody out. Farrell left Morales out there to face Victor Martinez, Detroit best hitter in this series and he made him pay with a two run Under Armour Trainers Shoes single off the wall.
In the seventh, Jonny Gomes led off against Scherzer and slammed a double off the top of the wall, a couple of inches short of a leadoff homer. Scherzer struck out Stephen Drew but Bogaerts worked him for his second walk of the night and fifth of the series and that was all for Scherzer.
a big money player, said Farrell, of Victorino. come up big a number of times this season, tonight no bigger. There has been a Under Armour Curry Two Low
Lefty Drew Smyly came on to face Ellsbury, who hit a potential double play ball up the middle but shortstop Jose Iglesias dropped it as he went to transfer it to second baseman Omar Infante and that miscue loaded the bases.
The worst to first Boston Red Sox are going back to the World Series for the third time in the last decade.
we just didn do good enough, said Detroit manager Jim Under Armour Shoes Black And Pink
That set the stage for Boston seventh inning rally.
difference when you look at the series is that they hit some bombs, some timely home runs, said Leyland. (Game 3) and Big Papi (Game 2) and tonight, Victorino. We didn do that.
lot of pushback on him because of his struggles. Then Vic takes an 0 2 breaking ball and knocks it out of the ball park. the bottom of the fifth, the Red Sox scored the game first run off Scherzer in one two pitch sequence. After getting ahead of Bogaerts 0 2, Scherzer ran the count full and then the rookie ripped a double off the Green Monster in left centre. On the next pitch, Jacoby Ellsbury drove him in with a solid single to right.
Red Sox into Series

Meanwhile, rookie Bogaerts, who was inserted in the lineup after the fourth game, doubled and scored twice and proved to be a momentum changer in the series, going 3 for 6 with four walks in his three starts.
if you pitch the way we pitched in this series, you would think we had won. the ninth inning, Boston lockdown closer, Koji Uehara, gave up an infield single but nailed it down as he has all season long and the party was on. Uehara was named the ALCS MVP for his three saves and one win.
With the Red Sox trailing 2 1 in the seventh inning, Victorino second career postseason grand slam put Boston over the top and touched off a wild celebration in Boston Back Bay area.
Unfortunately for Fielder, he stopped running and got caught in a rundown between third and home, ending the play with a belly flop miles from the third base bag.
