Tigers Vs. Red Sox Final Score: Detroit Gets A Win At Fenway, Avoids Sweep

The Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 7-5 on Wednesday night at Fenway Park, avoiding a three-game sweep.

Boston was the first on the scoreboard thanks to a Cody Ross RBI-single in the first inning. The Tigers tied it up on a Brennan Boesch RBI-single in the fourth.

In the fifth, Detroit exploded with five runs, including back-to-back home runs from Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder. Boston pitcher Aaron Cook was taken out after the flurry -- he gave up nine hits and six runs in four and two-thirds innings.

Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello (8-6) started strong, but gave up singles to Dustin Pedroia, Adian Gonzalez, Ross and Will Middlebrooks in the sixth inning. This resulted in three runs and Porcello was replaced by Phil Coke.

A solo home run from Carl Crawford made it 6-5 after six innings. An opposite-field solo shot from Delmon Young made it 7-5 for Detroit in the eighth and that's how it would stay.

The Tigers will begin a three-game home series against the Cleveland Indians on Friday.

Tigers Vs. Red Sox: Justin Verlander, Detroit Lose 4-1 After Rain Ends Game Early

A long night in Boston ended too early for the Detroit Tigers after rain delayed and eventually ended the game after five and two-thirds innings, giving the Red Sox a 4-1 win.

Justin Verlander (11-7) lost his second straight start for the Tigers and also officially snapped a 63-game streak of pitching at least six innings in a start. A pair of walks, an infield single and an error in the fourth inning were key to a four-run rally that put the Red Sox up for good.

The game was stopped with two outs in the top of the sixth inning with the bases loaded and second baseman Omar Infante set to face Boston reliever Franklin Morales.

Boston starter Josh Becket left the game in the third inning with a back injury, so Clayton Mortensen (1-0) earned his first win of the season in relief, while Morales picked up his first save.

The loss combined with a win by the Chicago White Sox, pushed the Tigers 2.5 games behind the ChiSox in the Al Central Division. The two teams wrap up their three-game series on Wednesday at 7:10 p.m. ET.
