BOSTON, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Nick Green drove in the winning run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning Monday to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 6-5 win over AL Central-leading Detroit.

The win ended Boston's six-game losing streak.

Green also homered, as did Dustin Pedroia and Jason Bay for the Red Sox.

Ramon Ramirez (6-3) earned the win and Jonathan Papelbon recorded the final four outs for his 28th save.

Detroit's Magglio Ordonez had a triple, two doubles, a run scored and an RBI and Placido Polanco had three hits, an RBI and a run for the Tigers, who had won four of five coming in.

Boston starter Brad Penny allowed three runs on six hits in six innings and Detroit starter Edwin Jackson gave up four runs on nine hits in four innings. Zach Miner (5-2) was charged with the loss.
