Tigers Vs. Red Sox Final Score: Detroit Avoids Sweep With 7-3 Win

In danger of being swept at Fenway, the Detroit Tigers picked up the bats on Thursday night and hit their way to a 7-3 win, snapping their three-game losing streak.

With the game knotted up at 3-3, Miguel Cabrera broke the tie with an RBI single in the top of the fifth inning, scoring Quintin Berry. The Tigers added three more in the final two innings, one on a Delmon Young solo blast in the eighth and two more in the ninth from the bats of Fielder and Young.

The Tigers had 14 hits in all, 10 coming from their first five hitters. Young and Berry had three hits apiece. Cabrera and Fielder each had two.

Max Scherzer picked up his fifth win of the season by striking out six in six-plus innings. (He was relieved in the seventh after walking the lead off hitter.)

After 10 straight on the road, the Tigers head home to play three with the New York Yankees. First pitch on Friday night will be 7:05 p.m. ET.
