(AP) — The Detroit Tigers may be especially eager to return home after a poorly timed downpour further soured their road trip and helped extend their decade-long stretch of struggles at Fenway Park.

First, though, they’ll try to salvage the finale Wednesday night as the Boston Red Sox chase a three-game sweep and fifth straight win overall in a matchup of sinkerballers Aaron Cook and Rick Porcello.

Detroit (54-50) had won 13 of 15 coming into this nine-game trip but has dropped six of the first eight, falling 4-1 on Tuesday. The Red Sox scored four times in the fourth inning off Justin Verlander, then caught a break when the Tigers had the bases loaded with two outs in the sixth.
