BOSTON (AP) — David Ortiz and Will Middlebrooks each hit two-run homers, Kevin Youkilis had a solo shot and the surging Boston Red Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 6-4 on Wednesday night.
The Red Sox have won for the 14th time in 19 games but remain in last in a jammed AL East.
Miguel Cabrera went 4 for 5 with three doubles and drove in a run for Detroit, which has dropped the first three of a four-game series in Fenway Park.
Adrian Gonzalez had a pair of doubles for Boston, his second breaking a 4-all tie in the seventh.
The Red Sox can close out the sweep Thursday night when Josh Beckett faces Tigers righty Max Scherzer.
