Game 4 of the ALCS has quickly become a rout.
The Tigers scored five runs in a big second inning and just added two more runs in the bottom of the fourth to take a 7-0 lead over the Red Sox at Detroit’s Comerica Park. Austin Jackson, who was mired in a postseason slump and bumped to eighth in the Tigers’ order for this Wednesday night game, already has two RBI. Miguel Cabrera, the likely MVP in the American League, also has two RBI.
Tigers starter Doug Fister has allowed at least one Boston baserunner in every inning so far, but the Red Sox still haven’t been able to break through for a run.
The bottom of the fifth inning is about to get underway in front of a loud sellout crowd.
Boston has a 2-1 lead — for now — in the American League Championship Series.
