View Comments

[photogallerylink id=36496 align=right]Jhonny Peralta hit two homers in his first game since being traded and the struggling Detroit Tigers withstood a grand slam by David Ortiz in the ninth inning and beat the Boston Red Sox 6-5 on Friday night.

Peralta, obtained from the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday, hit a solo homer in his first at bat in the second inning then connected again off Jon Lester, a two-run shot in the fifth.

Detroit took a 6-1 lead into the ninth and Jose Valverde struck out leadoff hitter Eric Patterson. Then he walked the next three batters and Ortiz connected for his 22nd homer, just clearing the low fence in right field. With two outs, Adrian Beltre doubled and J.D. Drew was walked intentionally before Mike Cameron took a called third strike.
