Jeimer Candelario hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the 10th inning, and the Detroit Tigers stopped a six-game slide by holding off the Boston Red Sox for a 6-5 victory on Wednesday night. Robbie Grossman began the Detroit 10th on second and advanced to third on Jonathan Schoop’s leadoff single. Candelario then went deep against Garrett Whitlock (0-1), sending a drive to right for his third homer.
Franchy Cordero woke up on Thursday in an 0-for-25 slump and he figured he'd end the day the same way. Then Kiké Hernandez came down with a tight hamstring in the first inning, and Cordero was suddenly in the game — in the No. 1 spot in the batting order. Cordero had three hits, made a shoestring catch to end a Tigers threat and then brought home the game-winning run in the eighth with the help of Detroit's fourth error.
