The Tigers can move within a half game of the best record in the American League tonight. Standing in their way is right-hander Ryan Dempster, who has struggled in 2013. Rick Porcello will start for the Tigers.
A tight game was busted wide open when the Red Sox scored 15 runs over the final three innings. The Red Sox would score in every inning but one and club eight home runs on the night, the most ever allowed by the Tigers in one game.
