Red Sox

Final: Red Sox 11, Tigers 7

The Red Sox pounded out 14 hits, including four homers, and needed every last one of them as an early six-run lead was threatened in the late innings before the Sox sealed an 11-7 victory over the Detroit Tigers.

Five different Sox hitters enjoyed multi-hit night with homers coming from Kike Hernandez, Alex Verdugo, Xander Bogaerts and Hunter Renfroe.

Nick Pivetta survived a rocky second innings (two runs on four hits) to get through five innings, but Austin Brice was charged four runs in relief making it hairy.
