Tigers edged out 4-3 in game 1 of DH by Red Sox

David Ortiz had a pinch-hit homer in the ninth inning off Jose Valverde to give the Boston Red Sox a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers in the opener of day-night doubleheader.

Ortiz, pinch-hitting for Jarrod Saltalamacchia, worked a full count against the Tigers’ closer, then hit a line drive over the scoreboard in right-center.

Andy Dirks started Detroit’s rally with a homer in the fourth, and Brennan Boesch’s fourth home run pulled the Tigers to 3-2 in the sixth.

Miguel Cabrera followed with a double, took third on Martinez’s groundout and scored on Jhonny Peralta’s single.

Matt Albers (1-2) picked up the win with two shutout innings of relief, while Valverde took the loss. Jonathan Papelbon pitched a perfect ninth for his 10th save.
