BOSTON How does a team come back from blowing William Perry Jerseys a five-run lead and a chance two go up two games in the American League Championship Series?
It's pretty much the same way that plans to deal with landing on his "neck, head, shoulder, everything" when he flipped over the right field fence at Fenway Park on Sunday after failing to catch 's game-tying grand slam in the ' 6-5 lo s to the on that evened the ALCS at a game apiece.
"I got up, and just went, forget it, let's go," Hunter said. "There's nothing we can do about it, let's keep fighting. That's all you can do is keep fighting, keep battling. I'll put some ice on it, I'll put some Robitu sin on it later."
Hunter was able to crack a joke, with , after one of the most stunning lo ses any team has suffered in the playoffs. But that's just the thing -- it's over, and the Tigers still have three games at home coming up, starting Tuesday with on the mound.
"We're profe sionals," Hunter said. "We'll get Brian Piccolo Jerseys over it. You've got to have amnesia. If you didn't have amnesia, you wouldn't be here in the major leagues. You always have tomorrow. It stings for today, but tomorrow, and Tuesday, it'll be a totally different game.
"It's always good when you've got JV going, and he's gonna give us every opportunity to win a ballgame, just like (John) Lackey will give those guys the same opportunity. Lackey's a big-game pitcher, as well. So we've just got to go out there, forget about today, it's over with, nothing we can do. We'll come back and bounce back Tuesday."
The Red Sox Jaylon Johnson Jerseys know all the same things, but their focus is different because they were on the positive end of Sunday's result, after staring at a very different result from a short distance.
"If we're going into Detroit down two Khalil Mack Hoodies Sweatshirts , the way that they've pitched against us, that challenge becomes even greater," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "But I think everybody looked upon this series that it was going to be a well-played, hard-fought one, and it's not disappointing at this point."
Each team has six runs through two games. Momentum may exist within games, but not between them, and the best-of-five ALCS begins Tuesday in Detroit. That's plenty of time for the tu sin to kick in.
