PHOTO: Stephen Drew pushes the limits of the neighborhood play

DETROIT -- The Tigers are off to a great start in Game 4 of the ALCS, scoring five runs against Jake Peavy and the Red Sox in the second inning. It could have been more, however, had Stephen Drew not benefited from the neighborhoodiest of nieghborhood plays at second base for the second out of the inning:

Obviously he's not on the bag there and Omar Infante should have been ruled safe. That's well beyond the usual bounds of the neighborhood play. Dustin Pedroia bobbled the potential double play ground ball by Jose Iglesias, which is why the flip to Drew was late.

Iglesias beat out the relay throw to plate Detroit's second run. Torii Hunter followed with a two-run double and Miguel Cabrera followed that with a run-scoring single. So yeah, the Tigers did score five runs in the inning, but as they learned in Game 2, not even a 5-0 lead is safe against the Red Sox. Boston got a gift with the call at second base.
