Zimmermann, Tigers shut down Red Sox

Nova (1-0) allowed just an unearned run over six innings in his first start since signing a three-year deal in the offseason to stay with the Pirates, who acquired him from the New York Yankees last summer.

“Yeah, the arm feels good, the delivery feels good, ” Wilson said.

Boston led 1-0 after Jackie Bradley Jr.'s second-inning sacrifice fly when Iglesias tied it in the third with a solo shot to left.

Lefty Daniel Norris went 6 1/3 innings for the Tigers, allowing three runs on seven hits with three walks and two strikeouts.

The Tigers would take the lead for good in the fifth inning when James McCann hit a home run to give Detroit a 2-1 lead in the game. Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts didn't play Saturday.

He allowed solid contact early in this afternoon's game against the Red Sox, not missing many bats, dancing into and out of jams on the bases.

"Tomorrow's another game, just like the other 161 we're going to play", he said.

Closer Craig Kimbrel made things interesting in the ninth, walking the first two batters on nine pitches before allowing a mammoth blast down the right field line to Victor Martinez with one out that hooked foul.

The Tigers earned their ninth consecutive Opening Day victory at home with a wild come from behind win against the Boston Red Sox.

Iglesias, who smacked the 11th home run of his career, also doubled in a run and scored another. Bradley, who robbed Nick Castellanos of an extra-base hit in the eighth, clutched his right knee but was able to walk off the field. Dustin Pedroia followed with what was originally ruled a double play, but after replay, the call was overturned with Hernandez safe at second.

Miguel Cabrera had never gone more than 5 PA into a season without a hit. The Red Sox will send the center fielder back to Boston for more tests, but both Bradley and the team are hopeful he won't need a trip to the disabled list. He had quite an ordeal getting from Florida to Detroit, though.

Detroit's slugger has yet to record a hit in the 2017 season but it will likely come in this series. "They couldn't find any flights to Detroit until Monday, so he flew to Columbus and he's now in a auto". I heard him say something and then I tried to move, and just kind of landed awkwardly. Pablo Sandoval drove in three and hit his first home run since 2015 in the setback. Some debris fell into the lower seating area, but nobody appeared hurt.

Left-hander Drew Pomeranz (forearm strain) threw Saturday and is on track to start Tuesday against Baltimore.

"The home opener in Detroit is a big deal, so you want to feel good about your chances of winning", manager Brad Ausmus said.

Farrell said Price threw with increments at 60, 90 and 120 feet and "was able to spin the ball on flat ground" before the Red Sox took on the Detroit Tigers.
