Late rally pushes Red Sox past Tigers

Starter Rick Porcello allowed 11 hits and four runs (one unearned) in six-plus innings for Boston but struck out eight and walked only one. With a patient eye and an ability to hit to all portions of the field for power, the 33-year-old is poised to record an eighth-straight season in which he's batted over.300 with 18 home runs or more.

The ninth was uneventful in the box score for the Red Sox, as they limped out of the game with a 1-2-3 inning. The Red Sox will look to keep Miguel Cabrera's hits in play and avoid the home run ball. He was in line for the win after Sandoval's homer, but the Red Sox couldn't hold on.

The Tigers led 4-3 in the eighth when Bruce Rondon (0-1) allowed a leadoff walk to Mookie Betts and a single by Chris Young. Shortstop Xander Bogaerts has also been on the bereavement list.

But the Red Sox battled back.

Bradley Jr.'s deep sacrifice fly in the second put Boston on top and Detroit tied it in the third. It was their only run of the day.

But it was a defensive play in the fourth inning that Zimmermann noted as one of the biggest of the day, when Mitch Moreland - "A thorn in my side", Zimmermann said - hit a ball off the rightfield wall.

Meanwhile, Rodriguez showed signs of struggling with his control early, walking a pair of men in the second inning. Neither team got anything going again until the fifth when Rodriguez's outing completely unraveled.

In contrast just 5.5 per cent of Danish babies cry for more than three hours a day, and only 6.7 per cent of German babies. Colic has always been defined as infant crying that lasts longer than three hours a day for at least three days a week.

OUR PICK: The over is 8-2-3 in the last 13 meetings between these two teams in Detroit and is 6-0-1 in Zimmermann's last seven home starts.

This was a long time coming for Jordan Zimmermann.

The Red Sox will attempt to salvage a split of a four-game series at Detroit when they send Chris Sale to the mound Monday against Justin Verlander. JaCoby Jones followed with a double, advanced on a wild pitch and scored on Iglesias' double into the right-center gap.

Sadly, the Red Sox bullpen faltered in the bottom of the eighth, and gave the lead back to Detroit. However, Greene buckled down and painted the black with a low inside fastball to catch Holt looking and end the threat.

Porcello notched his 1,000th career strikeout when he fanned Victor Martinez in the first inning.

The Red Sox tied things at three in the seventh on some heads-up coaching, when they challenged the neighborhood play at second base on what should've been an inning-ending double play. Shane Greene and Kyle Ryan each tossed an inning of relief before Justin Wilson threw a ideal 9th inning with a pair of strikeouts for his 1st save of the year.

Francisco Lindor, Indians, hit a go-ahead grand slam in the ninth inning to lead Cleveland to a 9-6 win over Texas on Wednesday night.
