With a 2-1 lead in the series following their 1-0 victory on Tuesday night, the Boston Red Sox will be looking to bury the Detroit Tigers in what is a very important Game 4 for both teams.

The Tigers took Game 1 of the series 1-0 and looked on their way to a 2-0 series lead heading to Detroit with a 5-1 lead going into the eighth inning of Game 2 when the Red Sox offense finally came to life.

A game-tying grand slam from David Ortiz set things up for a walk-off RBI single from Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and just like that, the series was all knotted up.

Game 3 saw Justin Verlander turn in yet another brilliant start for the Tigers, but it was squandered once again, as a solo home run from Mike Napoli was the only offense either side could muster.

Now, heading into Game 4, here is a look at a few keys to victory for each team, as they look to move one step closer to the AL pennant.
