BOSTON -- Fueled by a walk-off single from Xander Bogaerts in the 11th inning, the Red Sox snapped an eight-game skid with a 2-1 victory over the Tigers on Friday night at Fenway Park.
After tallying lone runs in the third, the Sox and Tigers traded zeros for seven innings until Bogaerts ended the deadlock with his well-timed single, which scored Mookie Betts from second on a close play at the plate. Both teams had to wait a little over four minutes before the safe call at home was ruled to stand after a challenge by Detroit.
