The Detroit Tigers went into Fenway Park Saturday night and pitched their way to an exciting 1-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of the ALCS.

How good was Tiger pitching? It started with Anibal Sanchez, who pitched six innings of no hit baseball. He was followed by 4 relievers. The 5 arms combined to throw a no-hitter into the 9th inning.

Boston broke up the no-hit bid with 1 out in the 9th when Daniel Nava hit a single to centerfield off Detroit closer Joaquin Beniot. Nava will then steal second, making things tense with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th. But Beniot popped up Xander Bogaerts to silence the Red Sox crowd.

Detroit scored the game’s only run when Jhonny Peralta hit a single off Jon Lester in the sixth inning, scoring Miguel Cabrera.

Game 2 takes place Sunday night at Fenway. Boston will throw Clay Bucholz, while the Tigers start MLB wins leader Max Scherzer on the rubber.
