@    Boston leads 2-1  First Pitch: Wednesday 8:00 | Comerica Park | FOX/WEEI 2013 reg. season vs. Tigers: 3-4 | +8 Run differential | +1 in ALCS Game 4 Matchup:       Jake Peavy, RHP  2013: 12-5, 4.17 ERA, 1.147 WHIP | ALDS: 0-0, 1.59 ERA, 0.882 WHIP Doug Fister, RHP  2013: 14-9, 3.67 ERA, 1.308 WHIP | ALDS: 0-0, 4.50 ERA, 1.333 WHIP Career vs. Tigers: 4-5, 4.83 ERA, 1.205 WHIP Career vs. Sox: 2-4, 4.36 ERA, 1.569 WHIP 2013 vs. Tigers: 1-0, 5.14 ERA, .0857 WHIP 2013 vs. Sox: 1-1, 5.23 ERA, 1.935 WHIP Last outing against the Tigers (w/ CWS): 7/25: (W) 7 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 7 K  Last outing against the Sox: 9/2: (W) 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 4 K  LINEUPS:                 Check back for updated lineups                                                                                 Last game: What a gem it was from John Lackey and the bullpen (mostly). Lackey was impressive in his 6 2/3 innings to say the least, and the Tazawa/Uehara combo came up huge. We can credit all the success to Mike Napoli's wardrobe change and his huge solo homer in the 7th that made up all the scoring and give the Sox the 2-1 lead. Which Tigers to watch out for: Miguel Cabrera & Torii Hunter Jake Peavy has had some issues with Cabrera in the past. He has held Cabrera to a .289 average, though has surrendered 3 homers and 9 RBI. Torii Hunter doesn't have as many homers against Peavy (1), but he has a .438 average (7/16), with a double, triple, and 7 RBI. Peavy has a good idea of what the Tigers are made up of, coming from the same division, which might not make a difference at all. Key to Sox victory: The Sox actually getting a hit before the 5th inning A little change from yesterday's 6 inning goal. This is becoming ridiculous. They need to shake things up early, and break any momentum Fister may gain. The sox only have 12 hits in the series. 12! They need that amount tonight. Prediction Fister certainly has the stuff to no-hit the Sox over an extended period of time tonight, but he won't do it. This is going to be the night where the Sox' bats wake up from their slumber and put some runs up on the board early. It will be another close one with the Sox coming out on top 8-6.
