@   Boston leads 3-2 Gametime: Saturday 4:00 | Fenway Park | FOX/WEEI 2013 reg. season vs. Tigers: 3-4 | +8 Run differential | -2 in ALCS Game 6 Matchup: Max Scherzer, RHP  2013: 21-3, 2.90 ERA, 0.970 WHIP | 2013 Postseason: 2-0, 2.25 ERA, 0.875 WHIP Clay Buchholz, RHP  2013: 12-1, 1.74 ERA, 1.025 WHIP | 2013 Postseason: 0-0, 6.17 ERA, 1.543 WHIP Career vs. Sox: 2-4, 7.02 ERA, 1.630 WHIP Career vs. Tigers: 2-1, 3.58 ERA, 1.232 WHIP 2013 vs. Sox: 1-1, 2.57 ERA, 1.000 WHIP 2013 vs. Tigers: N/A Last outing against the Sox (Gm 2): (ND) 7 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 13 K  Last outing against the Tigers (Gm 2): (ND) 5.2 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 6 K  LINEUPS:               Check back for updated lineups       Last game: Mike Napoli hit an absolute bomb in the second inning of game 5 and the Sox never looked back. A Ross double followed by an Ellsbury infield single capped off the scoring in the inning. Napoli scored on a wild pitch in the 3rd to give the Sox the 4-0 lead. The Tigers fought back but fell short as the Sox took game 5, 4-3. Thanks again, Koji! Which Tigers to watch out for: Max Scherzer The bullpen really screwed up his last outing, and that is fine with me. His outing was greatly over-shadowed by Papi's grand slam, and people forget how brilliant he was. I would not be surprised if he exceeds double digits in the K column.. Key to Sox victory: Buchholz one-upping Scherzer All the Sox need him to do is one-up Max Scherzer. Easy enough. Prediction The Sox are going to get the start they need from Clay and it is going to be a mean duel. The Sox are going to win the ALCS tonight and it will be another nail biter, 2-1.
