The bottom line is the Red Sox didn't take the bat off their shoulders and struck out too many times. Maybe they'll learn from this and they'll make adjustments in the second game.

Berry steals second. A hit ties the game.
Xander Bogaerts on as a pinch-hitter.
Deep fly out by Stephen Drew. That's two outs.
Quintin Berry on as a pinch-runner. I'm calling a stolen base.

The Red Sox have not been no-hit since April 22, 1993, by Chris Bosio in Seattle.— Tyler Kepner (@TylerKepner) October 13, 2013
17 strikeouts now for the Tigers. That's what happens when you just watch the ball. Napoli doesn't even take the bat off his shoulder.
STEPHEN DREW WITH A HUGE DEFENSIVE PLAY. FIELDER BLOOPER SNAGGED BY DREW'S SNOWCONE CATCH. THAT'S A TOP-10 HIGHLIGHT.
We go to the bottom of the ninth.
Don Kelly strikes out for the second out of the inning. Prince Fielder is up now. Big part of the game right here.
Torii Hunter doubles to left field to put runners on second and third with one out.
Jackson strikes out after failing to get the bunt down. He's been horrible at leadoff for the Tigers.
Iglesias reaches down for a single to center.
Koji Uehara on to pitch for the Red Sox.
David Ortiz flies out to center. We go to the ninth. Red Sox still don't have a hit.

Note...there have only been two postseason no-hitters in MLB history. The first was by Don Larsen in the 1956 World Series, with the second coming by Roy Halladay in the 2010 NLDS.
Pedroia rung up on a pitch on the outside corner. TAKE THE BAT OFF YOUR SHOULDERS!!! STOP TAKING THE CLOSE PITCHES!!!
Victorino strikes out for the first out of the inning. That's 15 by the Red Sox tonight.
