BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox gathered at David Ortiz's house for a barbeque and to watch Justin Verlander finish off the Oakland Athletics in the playoffs.           

They know they won't have to face him in Game 1 of the AL championship series.

Instead, they get the league's ERA champion, Anibal Sanchez. Followed by the major league leader in wins, Max Scherzer. And then comes Verlander, the 2011 AL Cy Young winner and MVP.           

Red Sox shortstop Dustin Pedroia says there's no consolation prizes in the Detroit Tigers rotation.           

Boston will start Jon Lester in Game 1 on Saturday night at Fenway Park, followed by Clay Buchholz. John Lackey and Jake Peavy are scheduled to pitch in Games 3 and 4.
