Game 5: Red Sox at Tigers

Red_Sox_Jon_Lester_2013 [1]Thursday night’s Game 5, which will be broadcast on FOX at 8 p.m. ET, will offer an anticipated rematch between Game 1’s brilliant starters, Jon Lester of the Red Sox and Anibal Sanchez of the Tigers.

They combined to give up one run on six hits in 12 1/3 innings of Game 1, with 16 strikeouts. Sanchez didn’t give up a hit and fanned 12. Lester wasn’t shabby, either, giving up only one run.

But things can change fast the second time around.

The hitters might be more accustomed to the stuff of Sanchez and Lester. More video has been watched. More scouting information has been absorbed. There could be a comfort level.
