Boesch hitting better away from home
CLEVELAND -- Friday's two-hit game continued a trend for Brennan Boesch, who has statistically been a better hitter away from Comerica Park. There's little to explain it, but the trend is tough to explain away.

Boesch's .267 average on the road is 38 points higher than his average at home. Moreover, 16 of his 58 road hits have been doubles, including four out of his seven hits at Progressive Field. Boesch's slugging percentage is higher in Detroit (.386 to .382) because of his home runs -- nine out of his 12 total on the year.

Boesch had gone 6-for-17 on the road current trip entering Saturday's matchup with Cleveland's Justin Masterson.
