ALDS Game Two: Rays vs. Red Sox & Athletics vs. Tigers

New, comments

Boston steamrolled Tampa Bay and Detroit hung on to a narrow lead in Game One. Will the Red Sox and Tigers take a commanding lead of the series, or can the Rays and Athletics tie it up?

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Tigers and Red Sox took Game One of their respective ALDS series yesterday, but can the Athletics and Rays make up ground before the series relocates? Oakland has perhaps the most pressure to win today, seeing as they kicked off the series at their home park. Heading into Detroit down 2-0 could be disastrous for their chances. The Rays and Red Sox send two of their better pitchers to the mound today with the Rays hoping for redemption for their embarrassing blow out at the hands of the Sox yesterday.

You can watch today's games on TBS and Postseason.tv with Boston/Tampa Bay getting underway at 5:30 pm ET and Oakland/Detroit starting at 9:00 pm ET.
