Sox prepared for tough games against Detroit
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The Red Sox are coming home to Fenway park just one win away from winning the ALCS against the Detroit tigers.
The Tigers will be starting Saturday’s game with their number one pitcher, Max Scherzer against the Sox second pitcher in Clay Buchholz.
"Going against Max tomorrow is going to be tough. He's tough; he's been great all year. Just going to keep doing what we do and go out there and try to win a ballgame,” Sox first baseman Mike Napoli said.
When Buchholz and Scherzer faced off last Sunday The Tigers had a lead going into the late innings but a grand slam from David Ortiz tied it up and the Sox ultimately won.
"I'm excited to get back out there, and it feels like it's been three weeks since I pitched. Doing all the work in between right now, trying to find ways to get better,” Buchholz said.
The Tigers need to win the next two games to move on, but manager Jim Leyland said they are taking it one day at a time.
"We have to win one game. That's obvious. We have to win one game and then take it from there. Then you got a shot to win the next one. We've got to win one game,” Leyland said.
