It seemed like we might be in for another 1-0 game. (Which is still preferable to, say, allowing runs.) But Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila both him home runs, sandwiching doubles by Prince Fielder (off the green monster) and Victor Martinez.
Here's Cabrera's home run, which was his second of the postseason and only the third since his injury in late August. He's gotten a hit each game, but only the Game 5 home run in the ALDS went for extra bases.
Alex Avila has struggled at the plate as bad as any regular in the Tigers' postseason lineup. Entering Sunday's game, he was batting .158 with no extra base hits.
But he made up for it with a two-run bomb to right field to put the Tigers up 5-0 through six innings.
