About last night: The Tigers’ bats woke up — with seven runs against the Red Sox, two more than in their five previous games combined — but the bullpen, filling in for Matthew Boyd’s missed start with left knee tendinitis, was bombed early and often in an 11-7 loss in Boston.
Games notes: Game two of a three-game set. … Detroit has lost its past five series while Boston, first in the American League East, most recently dropped three of four vs. Texas. Casey Mize is making his sixth start of the year and first of his young career vs. the Red Sox. He has three outings of three earned runs or fewer this season and two starts with five earned runs or more. … The Red Sox offense, second in the league in OPS and third in runs, is led by former Tiger JD Martinez. Martinez ranks among MLB’s top 10 in hits, home runs, RBI and OPS.
