Tonight was the first ALCS game, in wondrous Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox. But I wasn't watching much of the game because of the 4OT Michigan-Penn State game. When I finally tuned in, Detroit was up 1-0. I guess they got a run in the sixth. In the bottom of the ninth, after Detroit stranded two runners, it was pointed out that Boston had no hits. That there had never been a no-hitter in a League Championship Series game. And only one Divisional and one World Series no-hitter.
History in the making amidst the festive post-season burning? Naw. Boston got a hit.
But they stranded that runner and Detroit won Game 1 of the ALCS.
Whee! The local fans will go nuts.
