Jim Monaghan Contributing writer
Mike Napoli hit a solo home run in the top of the seventh inning and John Lackey outdueled Justin Verlander (honest) as the Red Sox beat the Tigers 1-0 at Comerica Park to take a tow-games-to-one lead in the American League Championship Series.

Lackey shutout the Tigers for 6.2 innings allowing just four hits and no walks while striking out eight. For his part, Verlander went eight innings and allowed just one run on the home run by Napoli (pictured). It was one of just four hits the Red Sox got off the Detroit starter who walked one and struck out ten.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
