Tigers’ Superb Pitching Staff Needs Run Support to Beat Red Sox in ALCS
Game 3 of the ALCS was another awesome pitchers’ duel that showed just how talented Justin Verlander is, yet the Detroit Tigers lost the game 1-0. That’s not to take away from John Lackey‘s great performance from the mound, but all this talk about Detroit’s incredible pitching staff is hogwash if this team can’t put runs on the board.
Mike Napoli was the hero for the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 as his solo shot in the seventh inning broke a scoreless tie and proved to be the different in the contest. He got the best of Verlander on one pitch despite the Tigers’ ace allowing only four hits and the one earned run while fanning 10 in eight innings. Put simply, a pitcher who puts up that stat line wins 99 times out of 100.
Of course, this is the postseason, so winning is harder than ever, especially against a super talented team like the Red Sox, but if the Tigers don’t start providing some run support, no one is going to remember this “historic” pitching staff that’s been talked about so much during these playoffs.
