Tigers Turn To Verlander to Regain Control of ALCS

DETROIT (AP) - The last time Justin Verlander took the mound, his team's season was on the line in the deciding game of the division series.
    
The stakes won't be quite that high for his next start, but the Detroit Tigers could certainly use another brilliant performance from their star right-hander after blowing a chance to take control of the AL championship series.
    
Detroit wasted a five-run lead Sunday night in Game 2, allowing the Boston Red Sox to even the series with a 6-5 victory. David Ortiz's tying grand slam in the eighth inning snapped the Red Sox out of a hitting funk, and if Boston goes on to win the pennant, there may be little doubt about the turning point in this series.
    
Verlander's job is to steady the defending AL champion Tigers.
