Tigers Complete Sweep of Red Sox with 6-2 Win

HUNTER RED SOX TIGERSBOSTON (WGGB) — The Detroit Tigers got the better of a struggling Red Sox offense in their three-game series, which ended Sunday night with a 6-2 Tigers win.

Boston’s offense bordered on anemic throughout the series, in which they scored just 4 runs.

Sunday looked more promising at the start, as Xander bogaerts got his second RBI of the series, scoring Grady Sizemore with a single in the bottom of the second inning.

The Tigers quickly answered, scoring three runs on an RBI-single from Miguel Cabrera and a home run from former Red Sox catcher Victor Martinez.

After Cabrera tallied his second RBI, a fielder’s choice on a ball from Mike Napoli scored Dustin Pedroia, thanks to a throwing error from Tigers third-baseman Don Kelly.

It was all the Red Sox could manage, as they went on to let up two more runs.

Jake Peavy let up 5 runs over 6.0 innings, after allowing 6 runs in a loss his last time out.

Meanwhile, Detroit’s Anibal Sanchez continued his early-season recovery, getting his first win of the season.

Boston’s record drops to 20-23 with the loss. They will have a day off Monday, before starting a three-game series at home against the Toronto Blue Jays.
