The Detroit News: Red Sox exact some retribution against Tigers with 11-4 romp
Boston -- The defending champs came to eat Wednesday.
After losing both ends of the doubleheader Tuesday, the first time they've done that since 2015 -- the first time they've done it at home against the Tigers since 1965 -- and falling to 9-15 on the season, the Boston Red Sox had a little fire in their belly.
They attacked starter Tyson Ross early and cruised to an 11-4 win over the Tigers.
And not coincidentally, the Red Sox offense started to produce just when former Tigers slugger J.D. Martinez heated up. He had a rough day Tuesday.

BOSTON (AP) -- J.D. Martinez had three hits and Eduardo Rodriguez pitched six strong innings as the Boston Red Sox rebounded from a doubleheader sweep by Detroit and beat the Tigers 11-4 Wednesday night.
The defending World Series champion Red Sox avoided their fourth losing streak of three games or more. They had only four losing streaks of three games each last season while piling up a club record 108 victories.
Martinez hit two singles, a double and drove in a run, and Christian Vazquez had two RBI singles.
Nicholas Castellanos had an RBI single for the Tigers, a day after their first doubleheader sweep in Boston since 1965.

The Detroit News: Matt Boyd keeps his cool, offense busts loose as Tigers beat Red Sox in Game 1

Boston -- You know when a black cat crosses your path, it's supposed to be bad luck, right?
Well, if Chris Sale's intentions were to intimidate or fluster Matthew Boyd before the game Tuesday, they failed. Back-fired, actually.
"Oh, you noticed that," Boyd said, with a smile. "That was, yeah..."
As a normal part of his pre-game warm-up reginem, Boyd was in right field throwing long-toss with bullpen catcher Tim Remes.
Red Sox starter Sale, as if Boyd was trodding on his turf, walked straight through Boyd's path, not even acknowledging Boyd or the fact that a baseball was being thrown back and forth from about 100 feet.
Boston.com: Red Sox doubleheader swept by Detroit for first time since 1965
Chris Sale remained winless and frustrated, but at least he saw a slight improvement. That was about the closest thing to good news for the Red Sox on Tuesday.
Sale struck out 10, but it wasn't enough as Detroit beat Boston 7-4 to start the Tigers' first doubleheader sweep at Fenway Park since August 1965. Spencer Turnbull (1-2) pitched five shutout innings for his first major league win, leading the Tigers to a 4-2 victory in the nightcap that left the Red Sox at 9-15.
"It's a long day. Fortunately for us, we came out on top and healthy," Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire said.
