The Tigers took an early 1-0 lead in Game 2 of the ALCS against the Red Sox. Victor Martinez hit a one-out double to left-center off of Sox starter Clay Buchholz. He advanced to third on Jhonny Peralta‘s line drive single to left, then came home when Alex Avila ripped a single up the middle. Omar Infante hit into a 6-4-3 double play to put the kibosh on the rally.

Tigers starter Max Scherzer pitched a scoreless first inning, recording two strikeouts. He’ll look to continue the offensive drought for the Red Sox.

    I don’t believe I have ever seen a team strikeout as much as I have in the first 11 innings of this series. Are the Sox hitters that baffled?

    By my count 21 Ks in so far. Unreal.

    They cry more than any team I’ve ever seen. That strike three to Gomes was all the way in the zone on the pitch track, but he was crying like he had been shanked in the shower….unbelievable.

    Swing the bat, quit lobbying.

    Boston hitters = 26 strikeouts in the first 14 innings of the series at home. Is that some kind of a record?

    Cabrera just homered, say goodnight to this one. A 2-0 deficit for these Sox might as well be 20-0.

    Not that it really matters now, but why pitch to V-Mart there?

    5-0 BABY!

    Nice managing in the 6th there Farrell — homer, double, double, homer, single before yanking Buchholz.

    In a game where you’re getting no-hit, and are about to go down 2-0 in the series at home.

    What is it with these new managers and ZERO sense of urgency?

    I can’t believe the team with the best record seems to currently have lost the ability to hit a freakin ball. Yesterday’s game was also a nightmare. All the players did for most of the game was stand there and take one strike after another, then of course swing on balls that were two inches off the ground. Then to question umpire West, who called the pitches well, was rediculous.

    Well here it is Sunday night and I can’t take watching anymore of this $hit, going to watch the rest of the Cowboys / Redskins game.

    What the heck happened?
