Red Sox Defeat Tigers, 4-3, Take One Game Lead In ALCS – VIDEO

The Boston Red Sox are one win away from their 13th World Series appearance, after defeating the Detroit Tigers, 4-3, on Tuesday night, at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan, and taking a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven game American League Championship Series.

First baseman Mike Napoli homered opened the second inning with a solo home run, before David Ross doubled, scoring Jonny Gomes, who had reached on an error earlier in the inning, making it 2-0, Boston.

The Red Sox added one more in the second, Napoli doubled in the third, and later scored on a wild pitch, to give the Red Sox a 4-0 advantage.

Detroit chipped into the lead, scoring single run in the 5th, 6th, and 7th innings, but it wasn’t enough, as Boston came away with the one-run victory.

Napoli paced the Red Sox at the plate, going 3-for-4, with a double, a homer, two runs, and an RBI.

Jon Lester recorded the win for Boston, tossing the first 5.1 innings, before giving way to three relievers, including Koji Uehara, who picked up the save.

Anibal Sanchez suffered the loss for Detroit.
