Game 4 of the ALCS between the Red Sox and Tigers takes place Wednesday night at Comerica Park in Detroit (8 p.m., FOX).
• Jake Peavy (12-5, 4.17 ERA) will take the hill for the Sox as Detroit will counter with Doug Fister (14-9, 3.67 ERA).
• Peavy faced the Tigers once in 2013, though it came in his final start as a member of the White Sox. In the July 25 outing, Peavy picked up the win, working seven innings while allowing four earned runs. He gave up a two-run homer to Torii Hunter in the outing.
• Fister faced the Red Sox twice in 2013, going 1-1. The righty was bashed around at Comerica Park back on June 21 when Shane Victorino posted five RBIs and had a solo home run in the first. On Sept. 2 at Fenway, Fister allowed just four hits and did not give up a run in seven strong innings of work.
