BOSTON -- Detroits Rick Porcello would rather forget the last time he pitched in Fenway Park. Aqib Talib Jersey . Hes likely to remember his outing Saturday night. Porcello pitched eight solid innings to win his sixth straight start and the red-hot Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 6-1. It was the 10th consecutive road win for the Tigers, who are a majors best 26-12. Detroit won for the 14th time in 17 games. In his last Fenway start, the right-hander was tagged for nine runs and seven hits -- three homers -- in five innings during a 20-4 loss to the Red Sox on Sept. 4. "I got beat around. Thats the way it is," he said. "Everybody gets their butt kicked and the difference is how well you can rebound from it." On Saturday, Porcello (7-1) gave up one run on six hits, striking out four and walking one. It was the fifth time in six starts hes allowed two or fewer runs. Miguel Cabrera had a homer, RBI single and one of Detroits six doubles, and Victor Martinez added a pair of singles. "Weve been playing some good baseball right now," Cabrera said. "Were aggressive and focused on what were going to do on the field and getting it done." Tigers manager Brad Ausmus felt Porcello had good command of all of his pitches. "That was probably his best outing," he said. "His fastball is always the key, but he threw good curveballs and some changeups." Xander Bogaerts had a solo homer and Mike Napoli three singles for the slumping Red Sox, who have scored just one run in the first two games of the three-game series. Boston lost the opener 1-0 Friday. "Early runs, we find ourselves behind," Boston manager John Farrell said. "One real scoring threat in the fourth inning and we come up empty. That was pretty much the story here tonight." John Lackey (5-3) gave up more than two runs for the first time in five starts, allowing six -- five earned -- on nine hits in 5 1-3 innings. He felt like he was just slightly missing in the strike zone. "Just didnt get some locations there in the fifth inning," he said. "That was pretty much the inning Id like to take back. I just didnt locate some balls in that inning for sure." Bostons David Ortiz had a single to extend his hitting streak to 10 games, going 19 for 40 with five homers and eight RBIs during that stretch. With Detroit leading 1-0 in the third, Cabrera hit a fly ball down the right field line, hooking it around the Pesky Pole about 10 to 15 feet and a couple of rows into the seats. "It was lucky shot. Right on the line," Cabrera said, smiling. "In other ballparks its a fly." In the fourth, Torii Hunter had an RBI double and scored on Cabreras single to make it 4-0. The Red Sox were scoreless for 14 straight innings until Bogaerts homered into the seats above the Green Monster leading off the fifth. Rajai Davis RBI double made it 5-1 and chased Lackey in the sixth. Davis scored on Ian Kinslers sacrifice fly. The Tigers loaded the bases with no outs against Lackey in the second, but only managed one run on Alex Avilas fielders choice grounder. Bostons slumbering offence loaded the bases with two outs in the fourth, but A.J. Pierzynski grounded weakly to second. NOTES: The Red Sox placed 3B Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled list before the game for the second time this season. This time, he was sidelined with a fractured right index finger he hurt in Fridays loss. He missed 19 games in April with a strained right calf. To take his place on the roster, the team recalled INF Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket. Holt played third and batted ninth, going 0 for 3. ... Switch-hitting Tigers DH Martinez didnt even try to mess with facing the shift his first time up, pushing a soft grounder into left field against Lackey on the first pitch he saw. He came in with excellent career numbers against the right-hander, hitting .407 (11 for 27). ... Boston 1B Napoli made a nice catch on Cabreras foul pop, leaning over the railing and into the first row of seats and Dustin Pedroia made a diving stab of Martinezs liner. ... Tigers RHP Anibal Sanchez (0-2, 3.13 ERA) faces RHP Jake Peavy (1-1, 3.94) in a nationally televised Sunday night series finale. Denver Broncos Jerseys . A-Rod is also disqualified from any post-season play. So at the tender age of 38, he will miss all of next season. As a result of missing the coming season, hes also out $25 million (which coincidentally is my hourly rate). Demarcus Walker Jersey . The ninth-seeded Safarova doused Swede Johanna Larsson 6-2, 6-3 on the green clay at Family Circle Tennis Center. The Czech player was a finalist here two years ago and captured back-to-back doubles titles in 2012 and last year. http://www.broncosproauthentic.com/Black-Friday-Shane-Ray-Jersey/ . Hes recovered from a scary injury and cleared to play. Mingo, who was hospitalized with a bruised lung he sustained in an Aug.Edwin Encarnacion tries to etch his name into Major League Baseballs record books tonight, as the Toronto Blue Jays attempt to bounce back from a rare loss in the second test of a four-game set against the Kansas City Royals. Encarnacions historic month continued on Thursday with two more home runs, but his teams nine-game winning streak came to an end, as Kansas City managed an 8-6 win in 10 innings. An error by shortstop Jose Reyes with two outs in the ninth led to the game- tying run and the Royals scored twice in the 10th off Todd Redmond (0-4) to win it. Alcides Escobar singled and Pedro Ciriaco was hit by a pitch to put two on with no outs in the 10th. Nori Aoki moved the runners with a sacrifice bunt for Omar Infante, whose liner to left knocked in both runners. Wade Davis (4-1) tossed two perfect innings in relief of James Shields to earn the win and Greg Holland pitched around a two-out infield single to nail down his 15th save. The loss spoiled another brilliant performance by Encarnacion, whose 15th and 16th home runs in May tied him with Mickey Mantle for most in the month in American League history. Hes also one shy of Barry Bonds major league record set in 2001. "I dont know where it goes down in history, but its pretty historic in my mind," manager John Gibbons said. This was the slluggers fifth multi-home run game in May after hitting just two homers total in April. Carlos Henderson Jersey. "Encarnacion is probably the hottest hitter on the planet right now," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "Hes got 16 home runs in May." Jose Bautista also went deep for Toronto, which had won 12 of 13 coming in. All nine Royals starters had at least one hit as their four-game skid was halted. Salvador Perez hit a solo home run, Infante drove in three runs and Escobar had three hits. Hoping to slow Encarnacion down on Friday will be lefty Jason Vargas, who is 4-2 with a 3.55 ERA. Vargas did not get a decision on Sunday in Anaheim, despite a solid effort that saw him surrender just a run and three hits in 6 1/3 innings of a 4-3 loss. Vargas has faced the Blue Jays seven times and is 1-3 against them with a 5.90 ERA. Toronto, meanwhile, will turn to lefty J.A. Happ, who has won his last three starts. Happ beat the Oakland Athletics on Sunday, as he scattered four hits and struck out seven over seven scoreless innings to run his record to 4-1, while lowering his ERA to 3.34. "Hes filling up the strike zone," Gibbons said. "Hes locked in right now." Happ has faced the Royals three times and is 2-1 against them with a 5.40 ERA. The Royals took two of three from the Jays earlier this season.
