Jackson leads revamped Detroit lineup to 7-3 win

by KIX 101.1/ 1230 KFJB Sports Department posted Oct 17 2013 9:59AM

A revitalized Austin Jackson delivered in manager Jim Leyland's revamped lineup as the Detroit Tigers built a big lead and held on this time, beating the Boston Red Sox 7-3 Wednesday night to even the AL championship series 2-2.

 

Torii Hunter had a two-run double and Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs after Leyland dropped Jackson to eighth in the order and moved everyone else up a place following the Tigers' 1-0 loss in Game 3. Jackson drew a bases-loaded walk off Jake Peavy for the first run of Detroit's five-run second inning.

 

Doug Fister allowed a run in six innings, and after blowing a 5-0 lead in Game 2, Detroit kept the Red Sox at bay Wednesday.

 

Game 5 is Thursday night in Detroit. The Tigers' Anibal Sanchez faces Boston's Jon Lester in a Game 1 rematch won by Detroit.
