Tigers top Red Sox 6-5 after wild 8th inning

The Red Sox center fielder was making an impact during Game 2 of the series after driving in Boston's first and only run in the 4-1 loss on a 412-foot sacrifice fly and making two outstanding catches in the outfield.

Righty Joe Kelly walked James McCann to load the bases before losing Jones on a full-count pitch. Iglesias, the slick-fielding shortstop traded to Detroit from Boston in the 2013 trade that brought Jake Peavy to Boston, had only four homers last season. "To me, we had to go to our best reliever to try and lock it down". Rodriguez posted a 3.24 ERA after the All-Star break last season. The Red Sox scored five runs to take the lead in the top half of the inning.

Sandoval got his bat through the zone and hit the pitch out the opposite way to left field, giving the Red Sox a one-run lead that would prove to be short lived.

Zimmermann (1-0) allowed a run and four hits. He has already driven in four runs on the young season. "Obviously, we've got (Justin Verlander), who started opening day, and I feel like the home opener is the second-best honor, in my books. The wheels were coming off a little bit".

You don't want to miss out on any of the action, so we're here to provide all the information you need to find out where and when to tune in.

Fulmer's gem went for naught once Bruce Rondon came in from the Tigers pen and promptly gave up three runs with Alex Wilson and Francisco Rodriguez allowing a run each to turn a 4-0 lead in to a 5-4 deficit.

The Detroit Tigers have a lot riding on Jordan Zimmermann this season, so a solid outing in his first start was an encouraging sign. He walked two and struck out four. The offense couldn't take advantage of early opportunities, Wright had some lapses in his start and the bullpen just lost all semblance of control in that fateful eighth inning. Tyler Collins, who started Friday in right, misjudged a flyball in the seventh for an error - but he also had two hits.

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.

"I got ahead of him 0-2, and then just threw an extremely bad pitch over the plate", Rodriguez said. Miguel Cabrera was hitless yet again, and his first hit of the year continues to elude him. "I" buttons to all fans in attendance Friday, in honor of owner Mike Ilitch, who died shortly before the start of spring training.

Two quick outs, then five straight batters reached base to give the Tigers the lead.
