David Ortiz contributed three hits and two RBI’s to lift his Boston Red Sox past the Detroit Tigers 6-3 yesterday at Fenway Park. Daniel Bard allowed just two runs in five innings to notch the W over Tigers ace Justin Verlander, who let up a scattered 10 hits and five runs in six innings of work.
“I felt like they made a really good adjustment against me. I felt like I was actually pitching decent and they were hitting some decent pitches,” Verlander said. “Obviously, this is a good lineup and they were more than capable of doing that. I can’t say I pitched bad, but it was a battle because of the way that they were putting together at-bats against me.” The Sox will face the Tigers again tonight and tomorrow at home before traveling to Toronto to battle the Blue Jays over the weekend.
