The Boston Red Sox only need one more victory to reach the World Series.
And all that's in their way is 21-game winner Max Scherzer, with Justin Verlander on deck for a seventh game - if it gets that far.
A victory in Game 6 on Saturday would eliminate the defending AL champions and send the Red Sox to their third World Series since 2004. Scherzer will face Boston's Clay Buchholz, a repeat of the Game 2 matchup that the Red Sox won 6-5.
Scherzer took a no-hitter and a 5-0 lead into the sixth inning of Game 2, but the Red Sox rallied against the Tigers bullpen and tied it on David Ortiz's eighth-inning grand slam.
Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia says he doesn't expect Scherzer to make many adjustments.
He doesn't need to.
