Boston Red Sox vs Detroit Tigers: Injury Reports, Predicted Lineups – April 13th, 2022

The Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers face each other in the final game of a three-game series in Detroit this Wednesday. The two teams are looking to get off to a better start after both lost series against division rivals this weekend.

The Boston Red Sox lost two out of three to the New York Yankees, while the Tigers lost two out of three to the Chicago White Sox. The first game of the series on Monday proved to be a dramatic 3-1 victory for the Tigers as shortstop Javy Baez delivered in the clutch with a two-run home run to give them a 3-1 lead.

In the ninth inning, JD Martinez of the Red Sox nearly tied it up with a home run to right field, but the ball was caught right at the wall to preserve a Tigers victory.

The second game of the series resulted in a comeback win for the Red Sox by a score of 5-3.
