Sale win 7th straight decision; Red Sox beat Tigers 11-3

Yeah. That guy

A bloop single, followed by a bad pick-off attempt helped the Red Sox tie it in the eighth, then Bradley completed the comeback with his eighth homer of the season, a towering shot to right that cleared Detroits bullpen and reached the stands. Boston came back to win the game thanks to Moreland's big day and Jackie Bradley's go-ahead homer in the eighth inning.

Moreland almost homered again in his next at-bat with a double off the wall in center, but the Red Sox failed to get the run home. Against right-handers this season, he owns a sparkling 44.0% hard-hit rate and 41.9% fly-ball rate, so he's worth checking out anytime Boston is facing a righty. Last season, Pomeranz went 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA in two starts against Detroit. He was hit on the leg by a 111 miles per hour liner off the bat of Bogaerts in the first inning but stayed in, manager Brad Ausmus saying, "It's tough to shake him off the mound".

The current Tigers have had some success against Sale, led by Victor Martinez's 21-for-49 (.429) batting performance with four homers and nine RBIs, Jose Iglesias' 9-for-29 (.310) mark and Ian Kinsler's three homers.

Moreland went 3 for 4 with two RBI and a run scored. Yesterday, the righty reliever faced hitters in competitive at-bats for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery a little over a year ago. Boston still had two runners on and one out, but the rally ended when Pablo Sandoval hit into a double play. “We had just lost two on the road so we definitely wanted to start things off right back at home.

The Red Sox offense finally rewarded their ace in the bottom half of that inning, and made Verlander throw a whopping 36 pitches in the process.


"That's a tough team over there", Sale said. "Unless his leg's severed, he's not coming out". J.D. Martinez is 3-for-4 with an RBI against him. Bradley also drove in a run with a single in the fourth.

“It was a great win for us, ” Moreland said.

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.

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. The Red Sox optioned 1B Sam Travis and RHP Brandon Workman to Triple-A Pawtucket. His ERA has dropped from 5.29 to 4.02 over that span and he has put together three straight wins to improve to 6-3 on the season. This is the sixth time Verlander and Sale have gone up against each other and in the five previous meetings, the Tigers won each time. But he is 2-1 with an 0.82 ERA in his last five starts against Boston.
