Andrew Romine’s bases-loaded walk off Brad Ziegler completed a three-run Tigers rally in the eighth inning, ending Detroit’s three-game losing streak and Boston’s six-game winning streak with a 4-3 Tigers victory yesterday afternoon at Comerica Park.
Ian Kinsler, Erick Aybar and Miguel Cabrera each lined base hits off Junici Tazawa to start the bottom of the eighth inning, with Cabrera singling home Kinsler for his 1,000th RBI as a Tiger.
Matt Boyd started for the Tigers and although he pitched well he got a no-decision.
Boyd threw six innings, giving up one run on five hits with four strike-outs and two walks.
Justin Wilson got the win in relief.
The series continues tonight at Comerica Park.
Michael Fulmer will start for Detroit and Rick Porcello will take the mound for the Red Sox.
The first pitch is scheduled for 7:10.
