Tigers Beat Red Sox to Even AL Championship Series 2-2 in Games

Oct. 16 (Bloomberg) -- The Detroit Tigers broke out of a scoring slump to defeat the Boston Red Sox 7-3 and even the American League Championship Series at two games apiece.

Torii Hunter had a two-run double and Miguel Cabrera added an RBI single as the Tigers scored five runs in the second inning to take a 5-0 lead. It ended a 13-inning scoreless streak for Detroit that stretched back to Game 2 on Oct. 13.

The Tigers made it 7-0 in the fourth on run-scoring singles by Austin Jackson and Cabrera.

Boston scored a run in the sixth on an RBI single by Jarrod Saltalamacchia and added another in the seventh on Shane Victorino’s run-scoring double. The Red Sox got their third run in the ninth on Jacoby Ellsbury’s run-scoring triple.

Game 5 in the best-of-seven series is set for tomorrow night in Detroit.

In the National League, Adrian Gonzalez hit two of the Dodgers’ four solo home runs as Los Angeles stayed alive with a 6-4 home win against the St. Louis Cardinals, who still lead three games to two in the series.
