The Red Sox got on the scoreboard quickly when Victorino hit his third home run of the season in the top of the first inning off Tigers starting pitcher Doug Fister. Boston added a single run in the third and then chased Fister in a four-run fourth inning.
Jon Lester started for the Red Sox going 5.2 innings allowing five runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out three. For Lester, it was his first win since May 15. He ran into real trouble in the bottom of the fifth inning when Detroit erupted for four runs, three of them Miguel Cabrera's 20th home run of the year with two on.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
