While he’s no longer the dominant force he was in his prime while playing for the San Diego Padres, Jake Peavy is still more than capable of turning in a great start, and the Red Sox could certainly use one with a chance to go up 3-1 in the series.
Though they find themselves up 2-1 in the series, it would go a long way in helping the starting rotation if they could put a few runs on the board early in the game and play with a lead.
For the Detroit Tigers: win the battle of the bullpens.
The Tigers bullpen has struggled this postseason with a combined 4.32 ERA, and it still has the Game 2 loss hanging over its head, so winning the bullpen battle will be key for the Tigers in Game 4 and for the rest of the series.
