Red Sox Favored In ALCS Game 1
Posted By Charles Mager On October 12, 2013 @ 4:38 PM In MLB | No Comments
The Tigers, by comparison, are slashing just .235/.299/.321 and scoring only 3.4 runs per outing. Plus, Detroit’s lineup wasn’t nearly as good on the road (.268/.328/.414) as it was at home (.300/.365/.456) this year.
That Detroit downturn, combined with how great Boston is at home (53-28 with a .285/.354/.464 during the season), is likely going to mean Anibal Sanchez will face a much tougher task than Jon Lester on Saturday night.
It’s been a quite a while since Sanchez pitched against the Red Sox—like seven years—and after Game 1, there’s a good chance he’ll want to go another seven years before seeing them again.
