Itís not over until itís over.
The Tigers trail the Red Sox, 3-2, in the American League Championship Series with Game 6, and potentially Game 7, on Saturday and Sunday at Fenway Park in Boston. Tigers fans can hold out hope that a spot in the World Series still is possible by winning the final two games.
The winner in the ALCS will play in the World Series beginning on Wednesday, according to the schedule released by Major League Baseball on Friday. The American League champion has the home-field advantage and will host four games in the best-of-seven series, because the A.L. won the All-Star Game this summer. That means either the Tigers or Red Sox would host Game 1 on Wednesday, followed by Game 2 on Thursday.
The National League champion, which is still is to be determined ó the St. Louis Cardinals lead the Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-2, in the NLCS ó would host Games 3, 4, and 5 on Oct. 26-28. If Games 6 and 7 are needed, the A.L. team would host on Oct. 30 and 31.
