Ortiz's homer in 9th lifts Red Sox over Tigers

DETROIT — David Ortiz hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning, and the Boston Red Sox rallied for a 5-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, snapping their five-game losing streak. The Red Sox left men on base all night long, including when Ortiz was retired on a deep flyball to center in the seventh. But there was no doubt about his homer off Joba Chamberlain (1-3), which carried about halfway up the section of seats beyond the wall in right. Chamberlain was trying to protect a one-run lead instead of struggling closer Joe Nathan, who had pitched the previous two nights. John Lackey (7-4) pitched eight sharp innings for Boston, and Koji Uehara pitched a perfect ninth for his 12th save in 12 chances. Detroit's Miguel Cabrera left in the sixth with left hamstring tightness.
