Mike Napoli (NAH'-poh-lee) homered and the Boston Red Sox held off the Detroit Tigers 4-3 to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven American League championship series.

Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera had a rough night. He was thrown out at the plate in the first inning, halting an early Detroit rally. Then he hit into a double play with runners at the corners in the seventh. The Tigers scored a run on the grounder, but it was a trade-off the Red Sox were willing to make. Detroit never scored again.

The Red Sox now need to just win one game at Fenway Park to go the World Series.

Game 6 is Saturday. It's Max Scherzer in a must-win game for the Tigers against Boston's Clay Buchholz (BUHK'-ohlts)
