The Red Sox looked to be on their way to an 0-2 deficit in the ALCS when their bats suddenly came to life on Sunday night, as a grand slam by David Ortiz in the bottom of the eighth tied things up at 5-5 and a walk-off single from Jarrod Saltalamacchia knotted the series up at 1-1.

That came after the Red Sox mustered just one hit against Anibal Sanchez and the Tigers bullpen in Game 1, and were then no-hit for 5.2 innings by Max Scherzer in Game 2, as the top offense in baseball during the regular season had been silenced heading into that eighth inning.

Now, as the series shifts to Detroit, the pivotal Game 3 will take place on Tuesday afternoon with John Lackey taking the ball for the Red Sox and the red hot Justin Verlander going for Detroit.

What follows is a breakdown of the three games that will take place in Detroit, with complete predictions ranging from the final score, to each team's pitching lines and on to notable offensive contributors for each.
