BOSTON (AP) -- Xander Bogaerts' single up the middle off Blaine Hardy in the 11th inning drove home the winning run, and the Boston Red Sox snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.
Hardy (3-2) gave up a leadoff walk to Mookie Betts, who moved to second on Brock Holt's sacrifice bunt. Bogaerts then sent a changeup into center field and Betts beat the throw home in a play that withstood a video review as the Red Sox celebrated their first victory in nearly two weeks.
Justin Masterson (4-2) worked around Ian Kinsler's third hit and a walk in the 11th to earn the victory on a night Justin Verlander and former Detroit teammate Rick Porcello dueled to a draw.
