DETROIT -- DETROIT (AP) — A power outage interrupted Game 3 of the American League championship series for 17 minutes.

The lights high atop Comerica Park went out and the videoboards were dark between the top and bottom of the second inning, delaying the Boston Red Sox-Detroit Tigers game.

The Tigers were coming up to bat for a second time with two hits after Justin Verlander held Boston without a hit for the second straight inning when the game was stopped.

Ten minutes into the stoppage, fans had not been informed how long the game would be delayed. Five minutes later, the Red Sox took their positions in the field and right-hander Jake Peavy began warming up on the mound.
