Tigers (12-11) 4 AT Red Sox (10-15) 11 – The recent Yankee win streak has made Red Sox fans even more nervous about their early season struggles. The Red Sox may have assuaged some of those concerns with a 12-hit 11-run performance. The Red Sox scored 3 runs on walks during a wild 7-run 8th. Eduardo Rodriguez gave up 1 run over 6 innings.
