Doubront leads Red Sox to 7-4 win over Tigers

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) -

Felix Doubront pitched six innings of four-hit ball, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered on Monday to lead the Boston Red Sox over the Detroit Tigers 7-4.

The victory was tainted by an injury to 2008 AL MVP Dustin Pedroia, who left in the fifth inning with a jammed right thumb.

The Tigers played most of the game without manager Jim Leyland and third-base coach Gene Lamont, ejected following a disputed foul tip in the second.

Doubront (5-2) gave up home runs to Gerald Laird and Delmon Young and just a pair of singles.

He struck out six and walked one.

Jhonny Peralta hit a two-run homer in the ninth, and Doug Fister (0-3) allowed six runs and 11 hits in five-plus innings..
