Tigers drop opener to Red Sox 5-3

His moonshot capped a night that saw the Red Sox, stymied to the tune of one run in the last two games against the Yankees in NY, rally from three runs down to pull out the win. "But, yeah, scoring three runs on Sale is not easy to do".

"Oh my god, it's so exciting, because it's my dream", he said after the game. Nicholas Castellanos hit an RBI double to drive in Jose Iglesias, who'd reached on an infield single with one out.

The left-hander still managed to log a quality start, allowing three earned runs (four total) on five hits and three walks with seven strikeouts. Boston still had two runners on and one out, but the rally ended when Sandoval hit into a double play.

Sale escaped a jam in the third with runners on the corners and no outs by striking out three straight, including slugger Miguel Cabrera looking with a 96-mph fastball on the inside corner. "The command was what caused him issues", Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said of Norris, who walked three in the third inning. "The first half went to us". Batters are hitting just.231 against him at home compared to.288 on the road.

The Red Sox came right back in the bottom half of the seventh and they stopped playing around.

Moreland went 3 for 4 with two RBI and a run scored. "Unless his leg's severed, he's not coming out". He almost homered again to start the sixth with a deep fly off the center-field wall for a double. “We just battled, never quit and continued to grind out at-bats trying to create some opportunities.”.


Yankory Pimentel, a pitcher in the Boston Red Sox's minor league system, received an 80-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reported Friday.

Any chance of a second straight Johnson shutout was quickly lost when Castellanos homered for the second straight day, with one out in the first.

Red Sox: 2B Dustin Pedroia returned to the lineup after a stint on the 10-day DL with a sprained left wrist. He had been sidelined with a cut on his left hand.

But as dominant as he has been in his career, his teams had yet to win a game when Justin Verlander got the start on the other side.

Red Sox: LHP Chris Sale (7-2) has won his last six decisions. RHP Justin Verlander, who had a throwing session Thursday to check the health of his right leg after an early exit in his last start, was cleared for his scheduled start Saturday.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Boston is the favorite in tonight's game, as the Red Sox are getting odds of -190 to win, while the Tigers are listed with a money line of +175 to prevail. Norris is 2-4 with a 4.48 ERA on the season and he hasn't earned a win since May 1.
