Sale shuts down Tigers in Red Sox victory

Bultman Analyzing Mike Fiers’ trade value after strong start against the Red Sox

This time, he allowed seven hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings, striking out six.

The major league-leading Red Sox lost for just the second time in 15 games, and their AL East lead over the New York Yankees slipped to 4 1/2 games.

Matthew Boyd (4-9) allowed a run and three hits in five-plus innings. Jeimer Candelario homered for the Tigers in the seventh. He had gone five straight starts with at least 11 strikeouts - and only one walk in each - but that streak came to an end when he was lifted Sunday after 99 pitches.

IN THE BATTER'S BOX- The Red Sox put two on the board in the second inning on ground outs from Rafael Devers and Eduardo Nunez to take an early 2-0 lead.

With men on second and third and nobody out, Devers hit a grounder to first baseman John Hicks, who immediately threw home - only to have Steve Pearce, the Boston runner at third, stay put. The only time the southpaw allowed a runner past first base was in the fourth when Nicholas Castellanos doubled to center field. Devers was tagged out.

After grinding through three terrible months at the plate, Bradley has now put together a month of consistently-hard contact that was capped off with a 390-foot three-run homer to opposite field Sunday afternoon, when he sparked the Red Sox offense in a 9-1 win over the Detroit Tigers. Bradley followed with his seventh homer of the year, giving Boston a 6-0 lead.

The game was delayed 1 hour, 35 minutes at the start because of rain.

In his first appearance since starting the 2018 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, Chris Sale looked near flawless on the mound, tossing six innings of scoreless ball giving up two hits, no walks and nine strikeouts in Boston's 9-1 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday afternoon.

Boston heads to Baltimore for a three-game series. Rick Porcello will be on the mound for the Red Sox while Kevin Gausman gets the ball for the O's.

Tigers: Detroit put RHP Michael Fulmer on the disabled list before the game with a left oblique strain, and Gardenhire said Fulmer will be "out for a while".
