The Tigers offense was limited to three hits and three bases on balls with Nicholas Castellanos going 2-4. The Tigers have named Blaine Hardy as the starter at the Red Sox on Wednesday. Hardy defeated the Blue Jays 5-2 last time out with both runs given up on three hits and four BB through six frames.
The Boston Red Sox continue to battle the Yankees for supremacy in the AL East and maintained their lead in the division with Tuesday’s victory. Boston starter Steven Wright allowed two hits and three walks over seven innings to get the win with two relievers putting up zeros.
The Red Sox totaled ten hits and walked five times with Xander Bogaerts going solo while JD Martinez went 2-4 with a homer, two RBI’s and three runs. The Red Sox are hoping Eduardo Rodriguez stays hot on the mound when he faces Detroit. Rodriguez has won three straight after downing Toronto 6-4 with a pair of runs plated over 6.2 innings.
Detroit are 5-2 in their last 7 overall and are 5-2 in their last 7 overall. Boston are 20-8 in their last 28 home games and are 41-18 in their last 59 overall and are 41-18 in their last 59 overall.
This one is tough to figure out with Hardy looking good despite coming out of the bullpen. The Red Sox will put him to the test…
