In baseball, Mike Napoli homered and the Red Sox held off Detroit 4-3 to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series.
Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera had a rough night. He was thrown out at the plate in the first inning, halting an early Detroit rally. Then he hit into a double play against with runners at the corners in the seventh. The Tigers scored a run on the grounder, but it was a trade-off the Red Sox were willing to make. Detroit never scored again.
The Red Sox now need to just win one game at Fenway Park to go the World Series.
