The Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers start their road to the World Series in the ALCS this afternoon. According to ESPN on Oct. 12, Jon Lester will start for the Red Sox while Anibal Sanchez will start for Detroit. Here is a look at the big game this evening and how you can see the Red Sox vs. Tigers live stream online.
Detroit is trying to make it back to the World Series after making it last season, only to be swept by the San Francisco Giants. The Red Sox want to make their first trip back to the World Series since they won it in 2007. This is the first time the two teams have played in the postseason.
The Tigers and Red Sox are the two highest scoring teams in Major League Baseball in 2013 and have solid pitching staffs as well. The Red Sox got some extra rest while the Tigers played up until this series, so Boston has players who are rested – especially the pitching staff. This means Detroit will have to work on their pitching rotation while Boston could set theirs however they felt was best.
This means Justin Verlander won’t be pitching until Game 3, but that also means he will be there if the series goes to seven game.
The Red Sox vs. Tigers live stream can be utilized not just for this big game, but for the entire MLB playoffs. The first game of the ALCS starts at 8 p.m. EST and can be seen on FOX live on cable and satellite systems.
