Fans react to Red Sox Game 4 loss
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The ALCS is heading back to Fenway. Boston will host Game Six Saturday after the Tigers won Wednesday night in Detroit. The series is tied 2-2.
Fans stayed glued to the game, waiting for a miracle comeback that never came.
“I wonder who showed up in the Red Sox uniforms. They weren't the Red Sox. I'm wondering what happened to the offense in general this series,” said one fan.
“It hurt a little bit but they're coming back to Fenway and that is never a bad thing,” said Red Sox fan, Sajid Shahriar.
Red Sox pitching just couldn't get it done in Game 4 and the offense didn't help. The Tigers turned on the heat, scoring seven runs and evening the series at two games apiece.
“It's tough, when you feel like you let the boys down. There is not a worse feeling than the one I have now. It left a bad taste in our mouths,” said Jake Peavy.
“We're just facing good pitching. And those guys are executing and they're not making many mistakes out there,” said David Ortiz.
So Thursday night, it's Jon Lester's turn to try and get that third win.
Either way, the series is coming back to Fenway, and fans say - despite Wednesday night's loss - they're still feeling good.
“I think Sox in six. I honestly do. I think they're going to win in Detroit and then win back in Boston and take it home,” said a fan.
Thursday’s pitching match-up will be the same one we saw in Game 1.
Anibal Sanchez will start for Detroit, while Jon Lester will be on the mound for the Red Sox.
First pitch is set for just after 8 p.m.
