MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has become the second key player this week to sign a new five-year contract with the club, tying the Belgium defender to the English champions until 2019. Kompany joins David Silva in committing his long-term future to City, three days before the start of its defence of the Premier League title. The 28-year-old Kompany said Wednesday that "this team is stronger now than its ever been; we have competition for places in every position and a dressing room full of exceptional, motivated people who want to continue making history together." Kompany joined City from German side Hamburg in 2008 and has been one of the Premier Leagues best defenders during his time at Etihad Stadium. Lonzo Ball College Jersey .

To get there, though, they may have to get past the best pitcher in the American League this season. Max Scherzer will try to keep the Red Soxs champagne on ice and extend the Detroit Tigers season on Saturday, as the American League Championship Series shifts back to Fenway Park for Game 6. Scherzer could be on his way to an AL Cy Young Award after going 21-3 this year with a 2.90 ERA. Its been more of the same for him in the postseason, as he has won twice and has pitched to a 2.25 ERA in three appearances. "You just go out there and pitch your game," Scherzer said. "Baseball is still the same, sixty feet and six inches (from the mound to home plate), and you have to throw strikes. The expectations and pressure doesnt mean you change. "Thats something thats always been instilled in me, and doesnt matter what the situation or what the game means, Im always going to approach the game the same way." Scherzer was terrific in Game 2 against the Red Sox, as he limited them to a run, two hits and struck out 13 over seven innings. However, after exiting with a four-run lead, he had to watch the beleaguered Tigers bullpen implode in a 6-5 loss. "I told them I was done," Scherzer said after that one. "They wanted me done. They had it all lined up how they wanted to approach the eighth inning." Now Scherzer will be tasked with staving off elimination for the Tigers, who dropped two of three at home to the Red Sox, including Thursdays pivotal Game 5 contest at Comerica Park. Mike Napoli had three hits, including a home run, and scored twice and the Red Sox reached Anibal Sanchez for four runs, then held on for a 4-3 win. Boston managed nine hits off of Sanchez after not getting one off of him in six innings in Game 1. In fact, the Red Sox had tallied just 14 hits and three runs off Detroit starters through the first four games combined. Jon Lester (1-1), who lost Game 1, was charged with two runs in 5 1/3 innings to get the win, as he gave up seven hits, three walks and struck out three. Red Sox closer Koji Uehara continued to impress, as he retired every batter he faced in a five-out save, his first since Sept. 20. "Maybe its the same five outs numbers-wise, but it was completely different because it was the playofffs," said Uehara, who has pitched five scoreless innings this series.dddddddddddd Miguel Cabrera had an RBI single for Detroit but was thrown out at home in the first inning and grounded into a double play in the seventh that scored a run but killed a potential rally. "We were fortunate we got a couple of ground-ball double plays ... none bigger than the first and third with nobody out to Miggy," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. Prince Fielders drought continued for the Tigers, as the first baseman has now gone 17 straight postseason games without an RBI. "We have to go to Fenway and we have to fight hard enough to win a game," said Cabrera. "If we do that, we have to keep fighting and get the next one. Weve done this before, and weve got great pitchers." To make matters worse for the Tigers, they lost catcher Alex Avila with what the team said was a left knee patellar tendon strain. Avila was hurt in a collision at the plate with Red Sox catcher David Ross in the second inning and was taken out after four. There have been four one-run games in the series, which already matches the ALCS record, set by the Orioles and Indians in 1997. "I just think thats playoffs," said Boston outfielder Jonny Gomes. "Especially the Sox and Tigers. Thats about as even as it gets right there." Hoping for a little more of a cushion on Saturday will be Boston righty Clay Buchholz, who was 12-1 during the season with a 1.74 ERA, but has pitched to a 6.17 ERA in two starts this postseason. Buchholz was spared a loss in his Game 2 assignment, but was not sharp, as he allowed five runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings. Of course, David Ortiz got him off the hook with a game-tying grand slam, as the Red Sox rallied from five runs down in a 6-5 win. "There were a couple of innings I let the ball get out of the zone and they hit it out of the park," Buchholz said. "I need to minimize the damage a little bit better. Both video and talking to whoever it is on the staff, you can sort of pick each others brain and see what I was feeling, what I could have done differently and how to get better from it." Recent history is not in the Red Sox favor, as the last four series that have featured a 3-2 lead, the team losing Game 5 has gone on to win the ALCS. If necessary, Game 7 will be on Sunday.
