Ortiz powers Red Sox over Tigers

David Ortiz went deep twice and drove in four runs as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Detroit Tigers 7-2 Friday night in the opener of a three-game set at Comerica Park.

The Red Sox won the game as -120 favorites, and the nine runs went as a PUSH against the posted over/under (9) set by sportsbooks.

Clay Buchholz tossed 6 1-3 innings for the win, giving up just three hits and one earned run.

Max Scherzer was tagged with the loss for the Tigers, allowing six runs off six hits.
