Red Sox Lose to Tigers, 4-1
The Detroit Tigers got a strong performance from pitcher Pepe Esparza, who stymied the Boston offense en route to a 4-1 win at Comerica Tigers Park. Esparza, now 2-0, was the winner. In 7 innings, he gave up 6 hits, while striking out 6, walking 1, and allowing 1 earned run. Danny Muller closed it out for his 2nd save.

The Tigers got a big at-bat from left fielder Jesús Hernández. For the game, Hernández went 3-4 with 3 singles. In the bottom of the third, with the bases loaded, he stroked a run-scoring single. His 6th hit of the season gave Detroit a 2-1 lead.

"It was a good effort all around," said Esparza.

Losses have been few and far between for the Red Sox, who are now 5-2.
