Detroit Tigers vs. Boston Red Sox ALCS Game 5: Start Time, TV Schedule, Probable Lineups


The Detroit offense woke up in Game 4 in a big way, plating seven runs off of Boston starter Jake Peavy, en route to a 7-3 win that evened the ALCS at two games apiece. So we’re now in a best of three series (with two in Boston) with Anibal Sanchez, Max Scherzer, and Justin Verlander scheduled to go for the Tigers. There are worse situations to be in.

Sanchez is scheduled to go up against Boston’s Jon Lester, but weather could be a factor in this one. It’s looking like it will be a cold, damp night in Detroit — not necessarily ideal baseballing conditions.

    Cold, damp weather always makes me concerned about the pitching… Anybody who has played the game knows how hard it is to throw when your fingers are numb. It seems to be less a case of “affecting both sides equally” than “affecting one pitcher more than the other randomly”.
