BoSox a win from pennant after beating Tigers 4-3

Boston leads ALCS, 3-2

(Continued)

David Ross, catching in place of Jarrod Saltalamacchia, doubled with men on second and third. Only one run scored on the play because Bogaerts didn’t get a good jump from second, but he came home anyway when Sanchez couldn’t handle Jacoby Ellsbury’s line drive back to the mound. It went off Sanchez’s glove for an infield single and a 3-0 lead.
Boston missed out on another run that inning when Ross was thrown out at home on Shane Victorino’s grounder. Ross plowed through Avila at the plate — then gave Avila a pat on the backside after he held onto the ball.
Ross and Avila have both dealt with concussion problems this year, and Avila was later hit in the mask by a foul ball. 
In the third, shortstop Jose Iglesias gave the Detroit fans something to cheer about with a terrific catch on a shallow flyball by David Ortiz. Iglesias, who was shifted over to the right of second base, ran all the way out to short left field, finally catching the ball with a quick snatch of his glove hand.
But Napoli followed with a double, went to third on a groundout and scored on a two-out, two-strike wild pitch by Sanchez to make it 4-0.
Sanchez allowed nine hits and struck out five.
Lester worked in and out of trouble. He was helped in the first inning when Cabrera was thrown out at home for the third out. Cabrera has been slowed by a number of injuries over the last couple months, and when Jhonny Peralta singled to left, it appeared the Tigers would have the bases loaded with two outs and Omar Infante batting.
But coach Tom Brookens started waiving Cabrera around third, and when Brookens changed course and put up the stop sign, the Detroit slugger ran through it and was out at home on a play that wasn’t close.
