BOSTON – Nick Green hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly and one of Boston's three homers, and the Red Sox ended their three-game power outage and six-game losing streak with a 6-5 win over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.
The Red Sox, which scored just two runs in the final three games of a four-game sweep by the Yankees in New York, squandered a 5-3 lead when Manny Delcarmen allowed two runs in the seventh. They went back in front in the bottom of the inning on singles by J.D. Drew and Casey Kotchman and Green's sacrifice fly.
Papelbon got his 28th save in 31 opportunities. Zach Miner (5-2) took the loss.
