Veteran second baseman Ian Kinsler upset about sixth-inning error that, along with Cameron Maybin miscue in CF, proved costly in Tigers' 4-2 win. Kinsler particularly disappointed about not getting the win for pitcher Mike Pelfrey, who "battled his butt off" and pitched well on Sunday: "To not come up with that play hurts a little bit."

Red Sox fans had to wait six innings to see if Xander Bogaerts would extend his hitting streak to 22 games. He came through with a single to left. Watch out Teddy Ballgame.

Oakland A's take the series with a 4-2 win against the Tigers today. Pelfrey falls to 0-5, though the club's sixth-inning demise definitely not all on his shoulders. Ian Kinsler error and Cameron Maybin miscue on Butler's ball to CF supremely costly as well.

Tigers pitcher Mike Pelfrey's day ends with bases loaded and two outs in the sixth inning. Pelfrey, encountering some difficulty in the third time through the A's order, gave up two hits and two walks, but second baseman Ian Kinsler's untimely error also extended the inning, allowed A's to score. 2-1
