April 9, 1986

The Boston Red Sox picked up a win at Tiger Stadium, knocking off the Detroit Tigers, 5-2. Starting pitcher Bruce Hurst, who captured player of the game honors, was a big reason why. In 8.2 innings, Hurst surrendered 7 hits, while striking out 10 and walking 1. He allowed 2 runs.

The Red Sox, now 2-0, have hit the ground running this season. Boston used the timely hitting of Wade Boggs to capture the win. The third baseman stroked a 2-run double in the top of the fifth inning to put the Red Sox on top, 2-1. It was his only hit in 4 at-bats, but he made it count.

 "At the end of the day, it's always about your starting pitcher," said Boston skipper John McNamara
