Despite Coke's pitching, Tigers lose to Red Sox, 1-0

On a misty & miserable night in Boston, Jarrod Saltalamacchia doubled off the left field wall in the eighth inning, scoring Carl Crawford from first and giving the Red Sox their fifth straight win, defeating the Detroit Tigers, 1-0.

Boston’s Clay Buchholz and Detroit’s Phil Coke each pitched seven shutout innings. Then Daniel Bard, who replaced Buchholz to start the eighth, threw one pitch before the game was delayed for 26 minutes by rain. When play resumed, Bard (1-3) retired the side in order.

Ryan Perry set down the first two Red Sox batters in the bottom of the eighth. But Tigers manager Jim Leyland brought in lefty Daniel Schlereth (0-1) to face lefty Crawford. The move backfired when Crawford walked on a full count. Leyland visited Schlereth on the mound but left him in and Saltalamacchia got his go-ahead hit.
