As the fantastically entertaining 2013 ACLS approaches game six, there is one team that inevitably is on the ropes. That happens to be the Detroit Tigers who have to win game six or they are going home to watch the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals in the 2013 World Series. In fact most believe that since games six and seven are in the Red Sox devastatingly awesome home field of Fenway Park, a Sox win is inevitable. Those people are wrong.
Now, I am not saying that the Red Sox will not win one of those two games because they very well could. Each could be either team’s game the way the first five have gone. Certainly momentum rests with the Red Sox but Max Scherzer isn’t the probable A.L. Cy-Young winner for nothing. He can go out and shut down the Red Sox to the point that they will certainly have to worry about a game seven and could do it and make it look easy.
Of course if they happen to get to a game seven the Tigers have Justin Verlander going for them in that game. We all know well what he can do and has done this postseason. To the credit of the Red Sox, their starters have matched the Tigers starters pretty well so far as is evident by their three games to two lead. This series is about as far from over as it was when it first started though. That one game the Red Sox have to win is going to have to be against one of the best pitchers in baseball.
