(NECN: John Moroney, Boston) 0 They're disappointed, but they remain optimistic.

It's the scene of the crime, and the Red Sox and Tigers return to Fenway Park Sunday night for Game 2, which some see as a must-win for the bearded boys of Boston.

Fans lined up early outside the ballpark, hoping to see the players arrive.

Saturday's loss was a tough one, as the Sox struck out 17 times and managed only one hit in the 1-0 loss.

Fans admit the Tigers' pitching was dominant, and the Tigers have seemed to have the Red Sox' number all year. But the die-hards are not willing to concede anything, saying the seven-game series is just getting started.
