The matchup between heralded Tigers’ rookie pitcher Michael Fulmer and former Tiger Rick Porcello proved to be no contest Friday night, as the Boston Red Sox demolished the Detroit Tigers 10-2. Fulmer gave up two two-run homers in the first inning. He then pitched four scoreless innings, but left as the Sox scored two in the sixth. He was charged with six runs on 10 hits. Boston added two more off Bruce Rondon in the seventh, and two off Mark Lowe in the eighth. Porcello went seven innings, and earned his 17th win of the season for the Sox. Detroit’s only runs came on a two-run J.D. Martinez home run in the second inning.

That series continues tonight in Detroit. Daniel Norris will start against Drew Pomeranz. Hear the first pitch at 7:10 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.

Cleveland won, so the Indians extended their lead over the Tigers to seven games in the American League Central Division.

The Milwaukee Brewers’ late comeback fell short, as they lost to the Seattle Mariners 7-6 Friday night. Rookie pitcher Brent Suter threw three scoreless innings, but gave up a run in the fourth, and left the game as Seattle scored three in the fifth. The M’s added single runs in the sixth, seventh and eighth. Milwaukee came back, with solo home runs from Chris Carter, Jonathan Villar and Keon Broxton, and trailed by three entering the ninth inning. In the ninth, Ryan Braun’s two-out, bases-loaded single drove in two runs and left runners at the corners, but Hernan Perez struck out to end the game.

The Brewers continue that interleague series against the Mariners in Seattle tonight. Wily Peralta will start against Felix Hernandez.

Milwaukee brought outfielder Domingo Santana off the disabled list in time for last night’s game. Outfielder Ramon Flores was designated for assignment to open a roster spot for Santana. Pitcher Damien Magnifico was optioned to Colorado Springs to make room for Suter.
