Tigers hand Red Sox fifth straight loss
DETROIT (AP) -- Miguel Cabrera had three hits, Eugenio Suarez homered for his first hit in the majors and the Detroit Tigers beat Boston 8-6 Saturday night, sending the Red Sox to their fifth straight loss.
Detroit has won all five games against the Red Sox this season after losing to them in the AL championship series last year.
Suarez’s solo shot in the fourth came in the shortstop’s third at-bat since he was called up from the minors earlier in the week to make his big league debut.
Nick Castellanos also homered for the Tigers, and Dustin Pedroia went deep for Boston. Detroit closer Joe Nathan allowed two runs in the ninth in a non-save situation, but retired Stephen Drew on a flyout with two on to end it.
Max Scherzer (7-2) allowed four runs and 11 hits in 6 2-3 innings. Jon Lester (6-7) took the loss.
