Detroit (AP) — Miguel Cabrera hit his 498 home run and the Detroit Tigers defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-2 on Tuesday night.
Cabrera added a single and recorded a career hit of 2,944, one more than Frank Robinson to finish in 36th place.
The Red Sox lost five of the season’s best games in a row, from the 0-4 start to the 10-game road trip.
Tigers starter Wily Peralta allowed two runs with six hits in four 2/3 innings and combined five reliefs to shut out the Red Sox in the final 4 1/3 innings.
Gregory Soto threw the ninth with a twelfth save in thirteen attempts.
Garrett Richards (6-7) lost and allowed 5 hits, 3 runs and 2 walks in 4 innings.
Boston first led 1-0, thanks to two defensive mistakes by the Tigers. Xander Bogaerts was two outs, and after Jeimer Candelario juggled, he hit the grounder in third place before throwing big into first place. JD Martinez continued with a single to the right, and Bogaerts easily scored when Robbie Grossman couldn’t pick up the ball cleanly.
Hunter Renfroe led second place in this year’s 17th home run, and Cabrera did the same at the end of the inning.
The Tigers loaded the bass in fourth without outs. Richards defeated Eric Haase, but Harold Castro hit a sacrifice fly to 2-2.
Boston finished fifth, 2-2, when Kyle Funkhouse (5-1) replaced Peralta and defeated Alex Verdugo.
Akil Baddoo finished Richards’ night with an RBI double in the fifth inning, giving the Tigers a 3-2 lead.
Grossman’s RBI single put the Tigers in 7th place 4-2.
The Red Sox brought Matt Barnes closer to the COVID-19 injured list after beginning to show viral-like symptoms on Tuesday. Burns is quarantined at the team hotel while waiting for test results. Boston filled his roster with Marwin Gonzalez, a utility man who had been out on the right hamstring tension since July 13.
