Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer ONE is the key number. ONE half of the World Series matchup is decided. The other half could be decided tonight. That’s because the Boston Red Sox are ONE win away from being crowned American League Champions. We won’t let that sink in just yet, because the Sox need to score at least ONE more run than the Detroit Tigers in order to proclaim that. Boston comes home with a 3-2 ALCS lead over the Tigers after taking 2-of-3 in Motown. The Red Sox earned home-field advantage for this reason right here. They get two shots in America’s Most Beloved Ballpark to celebrate a league championship with their fans. First things first: You gotta win. And against the likes of Max Scherzer (tonight) and Justin Verlander (if necessary in Game 7), things aren’t going to be easy. The Sox will have Clay Buchholz on the mound for the second time this series, hoping to see better stuff than what he had in Game 2 of this series. Buchholz gave up five runs on eight hits
