Buchholz and Pedroia carry Red Sox past Tigers 7-3
BOSTON (AP) - Dustin Pedroia hit a tiebreaking homer and drove in three runs to support Clay Buchholz's eight solid innings, leading the Boston Red Sox over the Detroit Tigers 7-3 Monday night for their third straight win.
The Red Sox opened a 10-game homestand - their longest of the season - after taking two of three at Yankee Stadium over the weekend.
Will Middlebrooks had a two-run homer and Carl Crawford added an RBI triple for Boston.
Austin Jackson began the game with a homer and Miguel Cabrera had an RBI single for the Tigers, who lost for the fourth time in five games.
