Sunday will feature Game 2 of the ALCS between the Detroit Tigers and the Boston Red Sox, and this matchup has the makings of a great pitcher's duel.

Pitching dominated Game 1. The Red Sox were two outs from being no-hit but still nearly tied the game in the ninth. The Tigers held on to win 1-0 and take away Boston's home-field advantage.

Pitching will be the story of the game, but there are other things each team must do in order to win. With one game in the books, both teams will be looking to grab the momentum before the series shifts to Detroit.

The Tigers won the season series 4-3 and have the early advantage in this best-of-seven tilt with a trip to the World Series on the line.

Here are the keys for each team in Game 2.
