Boston was held scoreless on eight hits by a trio of Detroit pitchers including starter Mike Fiers who went 6.1 for his seventh win of the year.

Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi each had two hits for the Red Sox. Betts (pictured) also make a spectacular catch in right to rob a home run by Leonys Martin.

Boston starter Brian Johnson allowed two runs over five innings. He gave up five hits and struck out an equal number of Tigers while not allowing a walk.

The Red Sox have now scored just one run in 18 innings this weekend. They will send Chris Sale to the mound on Sunday afternoon.
