Red Sox Beat Tigers 14-1 For 11th Win In 13 Games
Jacoby Ellsbury hit a three-run homer in a five-run second inning, and the hot-hitting Boston Red Sox went on to rout the Detroit Tigers 14-1 in an eight-inning, rain-shortened game Thursday.
The Red Sox, who beat Cleveland 14-2 on Wednesday, scored at least 14 runs in back-to-back games for the first time since 1998. Boston has won 11 of 13 and trail the AL East-leading New York Yankees by percentage points.
Carl Crawford's two-run triple gave the Red Sox a seven-run lead and chased Max Scherzer.
Alfredo Aceves (2-0) allowed a run on five hits and struck out six over six innings. Aceves made his second start with Boston and the seventh of his career.
