BOSTON (AP) - Felix Doubront pitched six innings of four-hit ball, and Jarrod
Saltalamacchia homered on Monday to lead the Boston Red Sox over the Detroit
The victory was tainted by an injury to 2008 AL MVP Dustin Pedroia, who left
in the fifth inning with a jammed right thumb. The Tigers played most of the
game without manager Jim Leyland and third-base coach Gene Lamont, ejected
following a disputed foul tip in the second.
Doubront (5-2) gave up home runs to Gerald Laird and Delmon Young and just a
pair of singles. He struck out six and walked one.
Jhonny Peralta hit a two-run homer in the ninth, and Doug Fister (0-3)
allowed six runs and 11 hits in five-plus innings..
