ALCS Game 1 Preview

Game 1: Jon Lester vs. Anibal Sanchez
The Red Sox took care of business in the ALDS against the Rays, winning 3 of 4 to move onto the ALCS. The Tigers went 5 against Oakland but finally edged out the Athletics in a close game 5. The Red Sox offense looked potent against the Rays including a shelling of Rays ace David Price in which he gave up 7 runs in 7 innings. The Red Sox will look to continue that momentum against Tigers started Anibal Sanchez in game 1 of the ALCS. Sanchez struggled against the Athletics in the ALDS, giving up 5 earned runs along with 8 hits and two walks in just 4.1 innings pitched. Lester, on the other hand, was dominant against the Rays offense in the ALCS, giving up just 3 hits over 7 innings.
Game 1 Prediction- Red Sox get to Sanchez early and win 8-3.
Series Prediction- Red Sox in 5
