The Red Sox have finally broken through in Game 3 of the ALCS against Tigers ace Justin Verlander.

Boston was held without a hit for 4 2/3 innings and scoreless for 6 1/3 innings, but first baseman Mike Napoli slugged a one-out solo homer to left in the top of the seventh to give the Red Sox a 1-0 lead.

Red Sox starting pitcher John Lackey has out-dueled Verlander so far, boasting eight strikeouts and no walks over six scoreless innings. Lackey has surrendered just three hits. He’s at 88 pitches as the bottom of the seventh inningĀ gets underway at a cold and gray — but for the time being rainless — Comerica Park.

The best-of-seven American League Championship Series is currently tied 1-1.

    What’s with the reblogged bs? Can’t you just take the facts of the story and write your own words? This cut and paste crap is killing what used to be journalism. Take facts add your own words and if it’s good people will read it. Why would they go to your blog when they could just come here?
