2013 Junior League Championship: Boston @ Detroit Game 4

Boston barely eeked out a victory over Detroit yesterday with a Solo Shot in the 7th.

That’s it.  That’s all there was.  The most interesting part of the game was the 17 minute power outage.  Red Sox 1 – 0, lead Series 2 – 1.

In the process the Tigers wasted Verlander, we’ll not see him again unless they play in the World Series.

Tonight Detroit will send Doug Fister (14 – 9, 3.67 ERA R) who’s had 6 innings, 7 hits and 3 earned runs this post-season for an ERA of 4.50 while the Sox counter with Jake Peavy (12 – 5, 4.17 ERA R), 5 and 2/3rds innings, 5 hits, 1 run and an ERA of 1.59.

You have to give the edge to Peavy.

The Tigers are in no danger of elimination tonight but I imagine they’d rather head back to Fenway tied at 2 than facing a 3 – 1 Series deficit.
