Red Sox rally with 4 in 8th inning, beat Tigers 7-5

Jordan Zimmermann earned the win for Detroit with six brilliant innings, allowing just one run.

Daniel Norris has made two previous starts against the Red Sox, both at Comerica.

Boston's Christian Vazquez is hit by a pitch during Saturday's game against the Tigers in Detroit. That gave Ivan Nova the cushion he would need at PNC Park, where the game time temperature was 37 degrees. Young went 0-3 with two walks in his first appearance of 2017. That rally ended when Andrew Benintendi grounded into a double play, and Zimmermann was able to make it through the middle innings fairly comfortably.

Sandoval seems healthy and in playing shape.

The next inning was started off with another hit by Mitch Moreland.

If the Tigers are going to reach the postseason this year, Fulmer will probably have to play a major role. "First start of the year, so you try to get out there and have fun with it". "The command was good and I had everything working today". This season, he hopes to keep pitching that way every month. 1B Miguel Cabrera singled to right in the first inning for his first hit of the season. In reality, it was just one bad pitch, but it was enough.

Reliever Justin Wilson came in and pitched a ideal seventh inning, even after an error by Collins gave the Red Sox an extra out. That put Detroit up by one. JaCoby Jones followed with a double, advanced on a wild pitch and scored on Iglesias' double into the right-center gap.

He allowed solid contact early in this afternoon's game against the Red Sox, not missing many bats, dancing into and out of jams on the bases. This time, it was an RBI double into the right field gap. McCann's two-run home run in the seventh had given the Tigers a 4-0 lead. The command just wasn't there, though. K-Rod quickly got ahead 0-2 and then tried to sneak an elevated fastball past Sandoval.

Meanwhile, the offense didn't stop its frustrating ways. "Missed down and away to right-handers where you're looking to finish off an inning".

It didn't get any easier to watch in the eighth.

To make matters more frustrating, it wasn't like the flu lineup was weakly making its way through the game. "Your arm just feels waterlogged - that's the best way to describe it".

But the Red Sox battled back.

What's left of the Red Sox didn't look sick when it mattered on Sunday. Victor Martinez is 0-for-9 with a walk and two strikeouts. Wright will face off against the 2016 AL Rookie of the Year Michael Fulmer, who will start off a weekend of strong opposing pitchers for Boston. He tossed a 1-2-3 eighth, as well, and was aided by another ridiculous catch by Bradley.

The Tigers (1-1) began their season in Chicago against the White Sox with what was supposed to be a three-game series. However, Bradley led off the inning with a flyout to left field, and while he was casually rounding first he tripped. Johnson walked off the field under his own power, though, and appears to be OK.

With all this, Boston's Friday lineup is set. Boston expects to have Betts back, but they will still not have Bogaerts. All in all, a much better day from the bullpen than yesterday, and a good one.”. He is expected to play Sunday.
