Surging Tigers beat Red Sox 6-1
DETROIT 6, BOSTON 1

By KEN POWTAK
Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) -- Detroit's Rick Porcello would rather forget the
last time he pitched in Fenway Park. He's likely to remember his
outing Saturday night.

Porcello pitched eight solid innings to win his sixth straight
start and the red-hot Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 6-1.

It was the 10th consecutive road win for the Tigers, who are a
majors' best 26-12. Detroit won for the 14th time in 17 games.

In his last Fenway start, the right-hander was tagged for nine
runs and seven hits - three homers - in five innings during a
20-4 loss to the Red Sox on Sept. 4.

"I got beat around. That's the way it is," he said. "Everybody
gets their butt kicked and the difference is how well you can
rebound from it."

On Saturday, Porcello (7-1) gave up one run on six hits,
striking out four and walking one. It was the fifth time in six
starts he's allowed two or fewer runs.

Miguel Cabrera had a homer, RBI single and one of Detroit's six
doubles, and Victor Martinez added a pair of singles.

"We've been playing some good baseball right now," Cabrera said.
"We're aggressive and focused on what we're going to do on the
field and getting it done."

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus felt Porcello had good command of all
of his pitches.

"That was probably his best outing," he said. "His fastball is
always the key, but he threw good curveballs and some
changeups."

Xander Bogaerts had a solo homer and Mike Napoli three singles
for the slumping Red Sox, who have scored just one run in the
first two games of the three-game series. Boston lost the opener
1-0 Friday.

"Early runs, we find ourselves behind," Boston manager John
Farrell said. "One real scoring threat in the fourth inning and
we come up empty. That was pretty much the story here tonight."

John Lackey (5-3) gave up more than two runs for the first time
in five starts, allowing six - five earned - on nine hits in 5
1-3 innings. He felt like he was just slightly missing in the
strike zone.

"Just didn't get some locations there in the fifth inning," he
said. "That was pretty much the inning I'd like to take back. I
just didn't locate some balls in that inning for sure."

Boston's David Ortiz had a single to extend his hitting streak
to 10 games, going 19 for 40 with five homers and eight RBIs
during that stretch.

With Detroit leading 1-0 in the third, Cabrera hit a fly ball
down the right field line, hooking it around the Pesky Pole
about 10 to 15 feet and a couple of rows into the seats.

"It was lucky shot. Right on the line," Cabrera said, smiling.
"In other ballparks it's a fly."

In the fourth, Torii Hunter had an RBI double and scored on
Cabrera's single to make it 4-0.

The Red Sox were scoreless for 14 straight innings until
Bogaerts homered into the seats above the Green Monster leading
off the fifth. Rajai Davis' RBI double made it 5-1 and chased
Lackey in the sixth. Davis scored on Ian Kinsler's sacrifice
fly.

The Tigers loaded the bases with no outs against Lackey in the
second, but only managed one run on Alex Avila's fielder's
choice grounder.

Boston's slumbering offense loaded the bases with two outs in
the fourth, but A.J. Pierzynski grounded weakly to second.

NOTES: The Red Sox placed 3B Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day
disabled list before the game for the second time this season.
This time, he was sidelined with a fractured right index finger
he hurt in Friday's loss. He missed 19 games in April with a
strained right calf. To take his place on the roster, the team
recalled INF Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket. Holt played
third and batted ninth, going 0 for 3. ... Switch-hitting Tigers
DH Martinez didn't even try to mess with facing the shift his
first time up, pushing a soft grounder into left field against
Lackey on the first pitch he saw. He came in with excellent
career numbers against the right-hander, hitting .407 (11 for
27). ... Boston 1B Napoli made a nice catch on Cabrera's foul
pop, leaning over the railing and into the first row of seats
and Dustin Pedroia made a diving stab of Martinez's liner. ...
Tigers RHP Anibal Sanchez (0-2, 3.13 ERA) faces RHP Jake Peavy
(1-1, 3.94) in a nationally televised Sunday night series
finale.
