Zimmermann, Tigers shut down Red Sox

Red Sox: LHP David Price (elbow strain) threw out to 120 feet in what Farrell described as "another consistent work day.".

With three key offensive players out of the starting lineup, the Boston Red Sox continued to struggle offensively, plating just one run in a 4-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers, dropping their second straight at Comerica Park.

"It changes the whole outlook of our team, to have the (No.) 1, 2 or 3 guy - he could be any of those guys - in the rotation healthy and throwing the ball well", second baseman Ian Kinsler said. Right fielder Mookie Betts hasn't played since Monday, as he is just beginning to recover from the flu. Hanley Ramirez was still out with an illness. He was placed on bereavement list on Thursday. He'd get into a bit of trouble in the second, walking two in the frame, but he escaped unscathed thanks to Justin Upton getting caught stealing on a good throw/catch/tag combination from Vazquez and Pedroia.

Fulmer had several shaky innings, but he was able to pitch skillfully out of jams to get the Tigers critical outs when needed. "We expect him to be a guy who can pitch behind (Justin Verlander)".

Albert Pujols hit his 592nd career homer in the ninth inning and added a tying two-run single before Cliff Pennington's drive to the wall capped the Los Angeles Angels' rally from a six-run deficit for a 10-9 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Hes converted 21 chances in a row.

Zimmermann would go onto fire off six innings, surrendering just four hits, one run and a walk. However this is a great price with the defending AL Cy Young victor against a Tigers' pitcher in Norris who has gotten throttled by Boston in his career.

Porcello looked briefly hobbled at one point when he brushed against Detroit third base coach Dave Clark while going to back up the base.

"First and foremost, I'm happy we won the game and I was able to pitch into the seventh", Porcello said on Saturday.

However, much-delayed pact on the Teesta water sharing remained elusive for the two sides. Both parties will together sign 25 pacts regarding civil nuclear cooperation, defence.

"I feel really good", Leon told reporters.

"I'm not thinking too much about what happened a year ago", said Porcello, who needs two strikeouts to reach 1,000 for his career.

Offensive stars for the Red Sox included Chris Young (2-for-4), Marco Hernandez (3-for-4), and Leon (2-for-4).

Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera watches his fly out during the third inning of a baseball game against the Boston Red Sox, Friday, April 7, 2017, in Detroit.

The Tigers blew a 4-0 lead in the top of the eighth, when Pablo Sandoval gave the Red Sox the lead with a three-run homer off Francisco Rodriguez.

PHOENIX - Paul Goldschmidt doubled in two during a five-run fifth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied from three down to beat the Cleveland Indians 7-3 on Friday night.

The Red Sox appeared to have hit into a double play in the seventh, but a call at second base was overturned after a replay review.
