The stakes won't be quite that high for his next start, but the Detroit Tigers could certainly use another brilliant performance from their star right-hander after blowing a chance to take control of the AL championship series. Junichi Tazawa struck out Miguel Cabrera with runners at first and third and one out in the eighth. And closer Koji Uehara en route to a four-out save snuffed out the rest of that eighth-inning threat by striking out Prince Fielder.

    • Lackey familiar with pitching in unfavorable conditions

      As a whole, it's probably safe to throw Red Sox right-hander John Lackey's home/road splits out the window this time. Simply looking at those and suggesting that gloom lies ahead against the Tigers in Game 3 of the ALCS at Comerica Park on Tuesday might…
