DETROIT - Monday was an off-day for the Tigers and Red Sox as the two teams prepare for Game 3 of the American League Championship Series in Detroit.
The Tigers will send Justin Verlander to the mound today against Boston's John Lackey.
The Tigers could use the extra day to forget about Sunday night's 6-5 loss to the Red Sox.
Detroit enjoyed a 5-1 lead in the eighth before David Ortiz erased it with one swing of the bat, launching a grand slam off Joaquin Benoit.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia won it with a single in the bottom of the ninth.
