Sale wins 7th straight decision; Red Sox beat Tigers 11-3

At Fenway for three games this weekend are the Detroit Tigers, who are hovering around.500 but are just 2.5 games out of first place in the ugly AL Central.

Per Evan Drellich of CSNNE, the Boston Red Sox have chose to option first baseman Sam Travis back to Triple-A.

Moreland went 3 for 4 with two RBI and a run scored.

Pomeranz has allowed two earned runs or fewer in five straight starts for the Red Sox.

Sale (8-2) pitched seven solid innings, giving up three runs on nine hits, striking out seven without issuing a walk.

A bloop single, followed by a bad pick-off attempt helped the Red Sox tie it in the eighth, then Bradley completed the comeback with his eighth homer of the season, a towering shot to right that cleared Detroits bullpen and reached the stands. They could get on track with a win over the struggling Detroit Tigers on Sunday night. Verlander allowed three hits and an unearned run in his seven innings (no-decision) as the Tigers rallied in the eighth for the victory.

Nicholas Castellanos and Mikie Mahtook hit solo homers for the Tigers, who lost their third straight. He spoiled a respectable start from Jordan Zimmerman, who went 6 innings and allowed just two runs. Yesterday, the righty reliever faced hitters in competitive at-bats for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery a little over a year ago.

The big inning started when right fielder J.D. Martinez failed to catch up to a Xander Bogaerts pop fly in short right ("we caught a break", said Farrell) before Bogaerts took second on Wilson's wild pickoff throw.

Andrew Benintendi had a two-run single in the eighth and finished with three RBIs. Boston still had two runners on and one out, but the rally ended when Sandoval hit into a double play.

While facing the Red Sox isn't a new experience, Norris has never started at Fenway and has only one appearance at the ballpark - striking out the only batter he faced, recently retired Boston slugger David Ortiz, on September 5, 2014. He has lost only once this season in his new home ballpark and felt right at home from his first start.

Tigers: Detroit activated C James McCann from the 10-day disabled list Friday and had him back in the starting lineup in the series opener.

Chris Sale finally knows what it feels like to get a win against the Detroit Tigers when he's facing their ace Justin Verlander. The Red Sox activated 2B Dustin Pedroia and recalled LHP Brian Johnson from Triple-A Pawtucket and both started, Pedroia going 0-for-4 - while 1B Sam Travis and RHP Brandon Workman were both optioned back to Pawtucket. One of his two losses this season was against Detroit, which beat Boston 2-1 on April 10 despite 10 strikeouts by Sale.
