BOSTON (AP) -

David Ortiz homered and hit two doubles, and the Boston Red Sox moved above .500 for the first time this season, tagging Justin Verlander for 10 hits in a 6-3 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.

Verlander (5-3) lost his second straight start since taking a no-hitter into the ninth inning against Pittsburgh on May 18.

The reigning American League MVP and Cy Young winner allowed five runs on 10 hits, struck out seven and walked one in six innings.

Daniel Bard (5-5) pitched 5 1-3 innings for Boston, allowing two runs on five hits with four strikeouts and two walks.
