The Detroit Tigers only have themselves to blame as they head home after another devastating loss to the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night in Fenway. Tigers were up 2-1 in the sixth inning with their ace Max Scherzer still in control until the inevitable happens. When Johnny Gomes doubles to lead off the seventh inning followed by a one-out walk to Xander Bogaerts, you knew Detroit was in serious trouble. Make things worse Scherzer's night was over as he heads to the showers sending in Drew Smyly hoping to preserve a one run lead. Jacoby Ellsbury reaches base on an error by shortstop Jose Iglesias that had the potential to be a double play and possibly ending the inning unscathed. Tigers' manager, Jimmy Leyland elects to go with Jose Veras to face Shane Victorino. With an 0-2 count against Victorino watch what happens next:

Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox getting back to the World Series, first time since 2007. Boston will be face the St. Louis Cardinals in a 2004 rematch where the Red Sox broke the curse winning the World Series for the first time since 1918. Since then they have won twice (2004 and 2007). St. Louis have had recent success themselves winning in 2011. Game 1 of the 2013 World Series begins Wednesday in Boston. This is the first time the World Series will have both teams with the best record in each league since 1999.
