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

"A number of guys aren't 100 percent, but a lot of fight in this group".

The Tigers led 4-3 in the eighth when Bruce Rondon (0-1) allowed a leadoff walk to Betts and a single by Chris Young.

"He's intentionally-walked a couple of times to get to me, and I've got him a couple of times in the past", Castellanos said.

After righty Jordan Zimmermann allowed an early run, Iglesias evened the score with an estimated 432-foot home run to leftfield in the third inning.

"Certainly what he did previous year, that's not a fluke", Farrell said of his catcher. "I think Nick could have a very big year".

After that, baserunners became scarce for both sides.

The Tigers played a video tribute before the game honoring owner Mike Ilitch, who died shortly before the start of spring training.

Laurel Easter egg hunts scheduled this week
Club Hood, Easter Egg Brunch and Hunt, 24th Street and Wainwright Drive, 11:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. hunts on Sunday. The organization is also continuing an "old Elks tradition of including several "golden eggs" in each age group".

Justin Wilson got the win for Detroit with a scoreless eighth and Francisco Rodriguez notched his second save of the season. (Shane) Greene was down as well. "But in the fifth inning. they were able to get him that second and third time through the order". "I feel like I'm a kid playing baseball again, where before I was trying to do a bunch of different things with mechanics and approaches and what not, trying to find myself in the big leagues". Mike Foltynewicz (0-1) walked three in 3 2/3 innings to end a five-game winning streak dating to last season.

"It's nothing to scoff at", said Tigers manager Brad Ausmus. "There's no die in this team". And he was in control after that, putting down 11 straight Red Sox hitters.

"Kimbrel's a high-powered closer, and these guys had good at-bats against him".

It for a bit like the one run they managed would be enough, however. Verlander left the game with seven innings pitched and four strikeouts, while allowing one run on three hits and two walks. After Jose Iglesias flew out to right field and JaCoby Jones was blown away by a high fastball, Sale just needed one more out to give the Red Sox lineup another chance in a tie game.

It was 1-1 with two outs in the bottom of the eighth. Santana (2-0) held the White Sox to two singles and lowered his ERA to 0.69. The two staged an old-fashioned duel that saw Sale outlast his rival by pitching into the eighth, but ultimately leave with the loss after Tigers scratched out a run to complete their 2-1 victory. Detroit's second baseman took full advantage, depositing it into the left field seats to tie the game at one. Nicholas Castellanos put the Tigers up 4-3 with a homer in the seventh, but that lead - like all their others - was short-lived. Boston also was without shortstop Xander Bogaerts and reliever Matt Barnes, who are on the bereavement list.

Sale allowed his first baserunner of the game to the ninth hitter he faced as Austin Romine laced a two-out automatic double down the third base line.

That may have been the case with two attention-seekers who ran on the field at Comerica Park on Saturday before getting caught during a game against the Red Sox. He was moving well and hopes to avoid the disabled list.
