Only three teams have overcome a 0-2 deficit in the LCS since it became a seven-game format in 1985, but the Tigers will hope to chip away when they return home tonight to take on the Rangers in Game 3 of the ALCS. We’ll cover it all in a live chat, beginning right around 8:05 p.m. ET.
Doug Fister, who tossed five innings of one-run ball in Game 5 against the Yankees last week, will pitch for the Tigers while Colby Lewis makes the start for Texas.

The Red Sox announced that starter Steven Wright underwent a left knee arthroscopy and debridement on Monday in New York. There is no timetable yet for his recovery, so it is still not known if he will be ready for spring training.
Wright, 34, was bothered by left knee issues throughout the 2018 season. He made four starts and 16 relief appearances totaling 53 2/3 innings, posting a 2.68 ERA with 42 strikeouts and 26 walks. Wright was on the ALDS roster but was removed due to the knee issue and did not appear in the postseason.
Wright is entering his second of three years of arbitration eligibility. He is due a raise on his $1.1 million salary. The Red Sox could non-tender him, but that seems unlikely.
