• ALCS Game 3 - The Detroit Tigers had a 5-0 lead after five and a half innings in Game 2 of the ALCS, but a late Boston Red Sox' rally led by David Ortiz's grand slam got the Sox back into the game and they walked off with a 6-5 win that tied the series up at 1-1 after two in Fenway Park. This afternoon, the series moves to Comerica Park in Detroit. Justin Verlander takes the mound for the Tigers in Game 3. Verlander, Detroit's 30-year-old right-handed starter, has made two postseason starts so far this fall, and he has yet to allow a run, with 15 scoreless innings pitched in which he's walked two and struck out 21. John Lackey throws for the Red Sox. In his one start in the ALDS, the 34-year-old right-hander went 5 1/3 IP, giving up seven hits, three walks and four runs in a 7-4 win in Game 2 with the Tampa Bay Rays. ALCS Game 3 starts at 4:00 PM EDT this afternoon...
