Sox fans on the edge of their seats during 1-0 game
DETROIT (WHDH) -- The Red Sox and Detroit Tigers were lights out Tuesday night, and we’re not just talking about their pitching.
During the bottom of the second inning the lights went out at Comerica Park but after a 17-minute delay the players were able to return to the game.
Sox starting pitcher John Lackey wasn’t very happy with the delay, but he took his frustrations out on the Tigers batters with a playoff career high 8 strikeouts through 6 2/3 innings.
"I knew I was going to have to pitch pretty good today. Because [Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander] is having a great career, great season, great postseason. The guys came through. Boy took care of me once again. Hit some dingers for me. It was a big one today," Lackey said.
In Boston it was just getting dark when the game ended, it started at 4 in the afternoon.
They reacted to Sox first baseman Mike Naploi’s home run in the seventh inning with cheers, but many were on the edge of their seats as the game came to a close with the final score of 1-0.
“Great win, 1-0 awesome win, that’s all I can say,” one Sox fan said.
