BOSTON, July 5 (UPI) -- Mark Redman scattered nine hits over eight innings Friday night as the Detroit Tigers defeated the Boston Red Sox, 9-5, for their first three-game winning streak in six weeks.
A somber night at Fenway Park began with a moment of silence following the death of Boston legend Ted Williams at the age of 83. That was followed by the playing of taps and a two-minute video tribute to baseball's most recent .400 hitter.
Williams' uniform No. 9 was cut into the grass in his familiar spot in left field.
Redman (4-8) yielded four runs and struck out four without a walk to halt a personal three-game slide.
Jose Paniagua gave up a run in the ninth for Detroit, which had not won a road series all year until Thursday but have taken three of their last four games away from Comerica Park.
