American League Championship Series goes down to the wire at Fenway Park.
Where: Fenway Park, Boston
When: 21.30 (BST)
Boston returns to Fenway Park with a 3-2 lead in the American League Championship Series. The Red Sox can win the AL pennant Saturday, when the Tigers’ Max Scherzer faces the Red Sox’s Clay Buchholz in Game 6.
“Our guys are well aware of where we are,” Boston manager John Farrell said. “But at the same time, the beauty of them is to not get ahead of themselves, and that will be the case once that first pitch is thrown on Saturday.”
Cabrera was thrown out at the plate in the first inning, halting an early Detroit rally, and he hit into a double play against Tazawa with runners at the corners in the seventh. The Tigers scored a run on the grounder, but it was a trade-off the Red Sox were willing to make.
