(SportsNetwork.com) - Momentum is only as good as the next days starting pitcher, right? Well, if thats the case, the Detroit Tigers have to relish the situation they find themselves in despite a crushing Game 2 loss to the Boston Red Sox in the American League Championship Series. The Tigers now turn to Justin Verlander in Game 3 and will try to regain control of the best-of-seven set, as the series shifts to Comerica Park. "Its always nice to have Justin Verlander on the mound no matter what the situation is," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "There wont be any carry-over for our guys from that game last night. Thats over with." Detroit seemed well on its way to returning home with a two-games-to-none lead in this series, as it held a 5-1 advantage in the eighth inning on Sunday. However, the Tigers bullpen, which had been so solid in Saturdays Game 1 win, imploded and allowed a game-tying grand slam to David Ortiz in the eighth, before Jarrod Saltalamacchias RBI single in the ninth lifted the Red Sox to a 6-5 win. "Weve got a ballclub that battles," Ortiz said. "We fight. We never give up. You saw it through the whole season. We found a way to get back and try to win a ballgame. Its never over until the last out, you know?" The comeback wasted a wonderful outing from Max Scherzer, who carried a no- hitter into the sixth inning and struck out 13 over seven innings. "We came away with the split," Scherzer said. "You have to see the glass half- full. This one stinks tonight, but guess what? The sun comes up tomorrow, and were going to be playing these guys at home in front of our fans. Its up to us to choose if were going to come out and compete. I think we will. I dont think this is going to deter our effort. I believe in this clubhouse. I believe in everybody in here, all 25 guys here. I still believe in us." Detroit starters hadnt allowed a run in 23 consecutive postseason innings and the staff as a whole broke a major league record on Sunday by striking out 32 batters in the first two games of this set. "Weve got a starting rotation thats relentless, and I said that before the series started. Every guy has their unique ability to shut down a team in their own way," Verlander said. "Im just one of the four guys right now." Verlander started the streak with eight scoreless innings in Game 5 of the ALDS against Oakland and comes into Tuesdays start having not allowed a run in 15 postseason innings this season. Of course, Verlanders terrific postseason comes on the heels of an inconsistent regular season that saw him go 13-12 with a 3.46 ERA. "Just playing with JV, a Cy Young winner, an MVP ... I definitely think that just playing with him, just seeing him being competitive ... Hes working his (tail) off, trying to figure out his arm angle, his curveball, his changeup and figure out a grip," teammate Torii Hunter said. Boston, meanwhile, will turn to righty John Lackey, who is certainly no stranger to the big stage. As a 24-year-old rookie, Lackey pitched the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to a win in Game 7 of the 2002 World Series and has pitched in the postseason on four other occasions for the Halos. "Hes not short on pitching in unfavorable conditions, whether its in a postseason in New York, and certainly one thats going to be in Detroit," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "Were talking about a guy thats pitched at the highest level on the biggest stage that the game has to offer." Lackey, though, was not sharp in his ALDS start against the Rays, but still got the win, as he allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings. The Tigers were 4-3 against the Red Sox in 2013, winning three of four at Comerica Park in June. Renato Augusto Brazil Jersey . Yup, he definitely needed this one. Craig homered twice and had three RBIs Wednesday night to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Craig went 4 for 5 and Yadier Molina added three hits for the Cardinals, who salvaged the final game of a three-game set in hopes of staying within shouting distance of front-running Milwaukee in the NL Central. Douglas Costa Jersey . Its like being on Broadway, everything you do matters. Id want to be good though! I couldnt play here if I wasnt very good. #83217388 / gettyimages. http://www.brazilsoccerproshop.com/c-50 ... ersey.aspx. -- D. J. Williams finally has his packing strategy down. Danilo Jersey . "Yes, Id like to get them in," Detroits rookie manager said. "Mother Natures going to have a say in that." Sure enough, the Tigers had their game against the Kansas City Royals postponed because of rain on Thursday.

So quarterback Jay Cutler sees nothing wrong with giving a chance to a player with a so-so past. When the Bears signed former Jets and Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes Saturday to vie for an opening caused by Wilsons broken collarbone, it took only a short time before Cutler and Holmes were working together on the offence. "You know, Santonio was here, probably had signed his contract and 60 minutes later he was on the field with Jay, and throwing routes," Bears offensive co-ordinator Aaron Kromer said. Cutler has gotten a good look the past two days in practice at Holmes and anticipates Holmes making an impact in a competition with former veteran Josh Morgan. "It looks good," Cutler said. "Hes explosive. Hed probably to be honest — hes a little bit rusty. Hes been out of football. "But getting in and out of cuts, catches the ball well, extremely explosive, fast. Hes exciting. Weve just got to get him caught up with everything right now. Its hard coming in where we are offensively and just kind of throwing him into the mix." Its possible Holmes will play Friday at Seattle in the third preseason game. But the first chance at the spot Friday will go to Morgan, a former Washington Redskin and San Francisco 49er. "Hes had two good weeks of practice, two good games, productive games," coach Marc Trestman said of Morgan. "Hes made plays out there. "I think he deserves a chance to step up now and get the first opportunity to do that." The 30-year-old Holmes had 23 catches last year, the second-lowest total of his career, while battling a hamstring injury. The Jets cut him to save $8.25 million against the salary cap. He had suffered a career-threatening foot injury in 2012, but says he is over the injuries. Questions still linger about a dispute he had with former Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, and an argument he got into with tackle Wayne Hunter that led to his benching in a 2011 Jets game. "Thats in the past," Holmes said. "Its neither here nor there right now. I think being in this new organization is a new move for me and a great opportunity for me to take advantage of and be part of a great organization." Wide receiver Brandon Marshall is the Bears receiver leader, and in the past a controversial figure himself. "We came in together," Holmes said about Marshall.dddddddddddd "Hes a great guy, first and foremost. Hes a Pro Bowler and he leads by example." Trestman thinks Holmes is a good fit regardless of his past. "I mean, people change, they get into new venues, new environments," Trestman said. "Youre out for a while, you get a hard look at where you are. Not only in your work life as well as in other aspects of your life. "We feel hes coming here in a good place, hes coming into a great locker room. Guys have reached out to him and are willing to help him and give him an opportunity to help our football team, but it will be a process and it will be day to day. But its off to a good start and well see where it takes us." A first-round draft pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2006, Holmes was the Super Bowl MVP in the 2008 season. He had 79 catches for 1,248 yards and five touchdowns but was traded to the Jets for a fifth-round draft pick. In Wilson, the Bears have a second-year receiver who was expected to take over the third spot after Earl Bennett was allowed to leave in free agency. However, the injury could keep him out well into the regular season. So Cutler thinks general manager Phil Emery made the right call bringing in Holmes. "I think it is a good sign that well take some chances on some guys and well bring some guys in because we know weve got a strong veteran group here and some guys that will help young guys or veteran guys along," Cutler said. "I know that, just knowing Phil, I am sure he did his background on Santonio and talked to him numerous times and talked to his agent and was very sure when he brought him in here of what kind of player and person he was getting." NOTES: Defensive co-ordinator Mel Tucker said safety Chris Conte is likely to get his first preseason playing time Friday after missing all off-season work and the first few weeks of training camp due to shoulder surgery. ... Wide receiver Chris Williams, who suffered a pulled hamstring on a 73-yard touchdown catch in the preseason opener, has returned to practice after a week away. ... Starting right tackle Jordan Mills remains day to day with a foot injury. ... Return specialist Darius Reynaud was signed Monday to replace Eric Weems, who was cut when Holmes was signed. He has averaged 9.7 yards per punt return and 22.6 yards a kick return in five seasons. ___ AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Gear Jerseys From China Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '
