Red Sox bumble away victory in 7-5 loss to Detroit

boston-redsox-logo1

Ugly seventh and eighth innings by the Red Sox allowed Detroit to plate four runs Sunday in a 7-5, come-from-behind victory for the Tigers.

Andrew Miller (0-2) picked up the loss for the Sox, who fell to 45-33 on the season. Boston leads Baltimore by 2.0 games and New York by 2.5 games in the AL East. Miller hit Detroit’s Jhonny Peralta with the bases loaded in the seventh, plating Austin Jackson.

In the eighth Torii Hunter drove in Avasail Garcia with a sac fly and Prince Fielder singled home Bryan Holaday and Jackson.

Felix Doubront worked 5.0 innings for Boston, allowing two earned runs on four hits. The Sox actually had success against Tigers ace Justin Verlander, scoring four runs on seven hits in five innings. Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz each had three hit days for Boston.

What they’ll be saying: Both of the Red Sox’ bullpen Andrews struggled Sunday as Andrew Bailey allowed singles to Jackson and Miguel Cabrera before Miller plunked Peralta. The Sox ’pen has been highly suspect as of late.

It was an ugly game all around for Boston as manager John Farrell was ejected in the eighth after umpires said Daniel Nava dropped the ball on a Tigers would-be fly out. Nava seemed to have dropped the ball on his transfer to throwing the ball to the infield.
