  • Pedroia's single wins it in 11th; Red Sox beat Phillies 6-5

The center fielder is enjoying one of those streaks now.

Jordan Zimmermann yielded six hits, two runs and three walks over six innings of solid work Friday in a loss to the Red Sox. The Red Sox were running out of time until Bogaerts, Moreland and Bradley came through in the eighth. Boston still had two runners on and one out, but the rally ended when Sandoval hit into a double play.

"A attractive swing. Well hit".

"It's important, it's very important", said Bradley. Dustin Pedroia delivered a sacrifice fly and after Verlander felt he was squeezed on a two-strike pitch, that man - Moreland - singled through the hole at second base. This was a big win. Considering the numbers that the Angels and Royals were able to put up against Norris, there is a good chance the Red Sox offense gets going on Sunday Night Baseball.

"I was hoping for a long time to throw like that".

Meanwhile, the Tigers can score a ton of runs but they have also struggled in terms of giving up too many runs thanks to the inconsistencies of their pitching staff. Norris has struggled in each of his past couple of starts so it's hard to trust him on the road in a tough ballpark on Sunday Night Baseball. "That was the key", said Farrell.

Matt Barnes (4-2) pitched one inning of relief and got the win and Craig Kimbrel picked up his 18th save. The Tiger rank seventh in on base percentage and 11 in runs scored this season. They had scored just three runs in their previous 25 innings before erupting in the eighth.

Pedroia is hitting.292 (50 for 171) in 45 games with two homers and 21 RBIs. Alex Wilson allowed the three runs for the Tigers, blowing his third save of the season. He was hit on the leg by a 111 miles per hour liner off the bat of Bogaerts in the first inning but stayed in, manager Brad Ausmus saying, "It's tough to shake him off the mound". “Unless his legs severed, hes not coming out.”.

Nicholas Castellanos and Mikey Mahtook homered and Martinez and Jose Iglesias both had three hits for the Tigers (29-31).

"Oh my god, it's so exciting, because it's my dream", he said after the game. "The first half went to us".

The Red Sox came right back in the bottom half of the seventh and they stopped playing around.

NOTES: Boston manager John Farrell met with LHP David Price concerning Price's outburst at the media in New York Wednesday night. Meanwhile, the Tigers have really struggled on the road this season with a 13-20 mark away from home. The Tigers activated C James McCann and sent C John Hicks back to Triple-A Toledo.

Chris Sale won round two of the matchup with Tigers' ace Justin Verlander.

Their first lead of the game, after trailing 3-0 in the fourth inning. RHP Justin Verlander, who had a throwing session Thursday to check the health of his right leg after an early exit in his last start, was cleared for his scheduled start Saturday. Friday night was Pride Night at Fenway.
