DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera hobbled through a stop sign, gently colliding with the catcher for an easy out at home.

Anibal Sanchez showed none of his no-hit stuff, Detroit’s first shaky outing from its rotation in the AL championship series.

And yet the Comerica Park crowd had a chance to roar Thursday night when Prince Fielder came to the plate in the fifth and seventh innings. But each time, Fielder failed to come through and cheers quickly turned to jeers for the slumping slugger.

Fielder extended his postseason drought without an RBI to a career-long 65 at-bats and that helped Boston hold on for a 4-3 win and a 3-2 series lead that put the Tigers on the brink of elimination.
