Red Sox fall to Tigers after Rough Eighth Inning

By DJ Harding

The Boston Red Sox played another game of Spring Training today versus the Detroit Tigers.

Boston has gone winless in their last five games after not suffering a loss in their first 14 games. Their Record now stands at 9-4-4 which is the best record in the Grapefruit League and third best in the MLB behind the Kansas City Royals and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Boston batted first as Raimel Tapia was a prime example of how to start a game off right as he homered in the first at bat of the game.

The Red Sox would keep their lead through the first three innings as in the top of the fourth Rob Refsnyder would hit a home run of his own and extend Boston’s lead to 2-0

Detroit would score in the bottom of the fourth and bring the lead back to one run.

But Boston would hold their lead until the bottom of the eighth which is when the floodgates would open for Detroit as they would score five runs and turn a 2-1 lead by Boston into a 6-2 lead by Detroit.

Detroit would finish the game in the top of the ninth and go on to win 6-2

Boston now has a record of 9-5-4 and now have six straight winless games. The Red Sox will continue Spring Training tomorrow against the Tampa Bay Rays.
