Red Sox falter late in loss to Tigers

DETROIT — Torii Hunter hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning after two Boston errors helped load the bases, and Prince Fielder added a two-run single to help the Detroit Tigers to a sloppy 7-5 victory over the Red Sox on Sunday.

Justin Verlander struggled, and Detroit trailed 4-3 in the seventh before Andrew Miller (0-2) hit Jhonny Peralta with a pitch with the bases loaded to tie it.
