Boston holds off Tigers 1-0 behind Lackey, bullpen

by KIX 101.1/ 1230 KFJB Sports Department posted Oct 16 2013 10:04AM

John Lackey edged Justin Verlander in the latest duel of these pitching-rich playoffs, and Boston's bullpen shut down Detroit's big boppers with the game on the line to lift the Red Sox over the Tigers 1-0 Tuesday for a 2-1 lead in the AL championship series.

Mike Napoli homered in the seventh inning off Verlander, and Detroit's attempt at a rally fell short in the eighth when Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder both struck out with runners at the corners.

Lackey allowed four hits in 6 2-3 innings, striking out eight without a walk in a game that was delayed 17 minutes in the second inning because lights on the stadium towers went out.

Detroit trails the series despite three straight gems by its starters. Game 4 is Wednesday night at Comerica Park.
