Old friend Iglesias leads Tigers past Red Sox, 4-1

Old friend Iglesias leads Tigers past Red Sox, 4-1”

Verlander bagged a win in his first outing, recording 6.1 innings, six hits and two earned. Iglesias, who was 0-for-12 entering the game, made his first hit of the season a big one as he drilled a 94 miles per hour fastball into the left-field stands.

A sellout crowd at Comerica Park watched in stunned silence as the Detroit Tigers' bullpen squandered a four-run lead with an all-systems meltdown in the eighth inning. Cabrera was 0-for-12 in his first four games, longest he has ever gone hitless at the start of a season.

But the Red Sox battled back.

- As if the Red Sox's luck couldn't get any worse, minor league pitcher Brian Johnson exited his start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday after being hit in the head with a line drive. Betts returned to the team but didn't play. Hanley Ramirez just went down with the flu, while Brock Holt finally came back from the illness today, despite not feeling 100%. Boston also was without shortstop Xander Bogaerts and reliever Matt Barnes, who are on the bereavement list. Here's what the batting order will look like for the Red Sox this afternoon. "The first couple of innings, I couldn't get a real good feel for my breaking stuff".

Bradley Jr.'s deep sacrifice fly in the second put Boston on top and Detroit tied it in the third. It was their only run of the day.

But it was a defensive play in the fourth inning that Zimmermann noted as one of the biggest of the day, when Mitch Moreland - "A thorn in my side", Zimmermann said - hit a ball off the rightfield wall.

That was answered earlier in the week, when Castellanos was slotted second. Farrell said the team was waiting for an MRI to be reviewed.

The fifth inning of work for Rodriguez started innocently enough as he overwhelmed Mikie Mahtook on three pitches to pick up the first out. Jacoby Jones and Jose Iglesias, the #8 and #9 hitters respectively smacked back-to-back doubles to tack on another run while leadoff man Ian Kinsler drove in Iglesias with a RBI single for a 4-1 lead.

Zimmermann refused to give the Sox life in the sixth, ensuring the ever-critical lockdown inning after a big inning from his offense.

With the win, the Tigers improved to 2-1 on the young season.

Kimbrel then struck out Upton and Tyler Collins to end it.

A wild pitch moved both runners into scoring position. The Tigers will also wear "Mr".

Greene and Ryan each danced around baserunners.

Fulmer takes the mound Friday when the Tigers host the Boston Red Sox in Detroit's first home game of the season. Justin Wilson did a real nice job in the ninth to close it out, get the save in the ninth, ” Ausmus said. On Aug. 7, 2015, he gave up five runs on nine hits in 3 1/3 innings.
