Porcello was outstanding once again, giving up two runs on four hits and a pair of walks while striking out eight in seven innings of work. His record improved to 17-3 while his ERA dropped to 3.22.

Hanley Ramirez paced the Red Sox offense with three hits; he also drove in four runs.

David Ortiz (28) and Jackie Bradley Jr. (21) each hit two-run home runs in the top of the first inning to give Boston an early 4-0 lead.

Detroit sliced the lead in half in the second on a two-run shot by J.D. Martinez that drove in former Red Sox Victor Martinez.

Every Red Sox starter had at least one hit. Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts, Ortiz, Sandy Leon, and Andrew Benintendi each had two.

Heath Hembree came on in the eighth and Fernando Abad pitched the ninth to close out the game.
