BOSTON -- Justin Verlander gave the Detroit Tigers a quality start Monday night, and they capitalized. They could use more of that in a tightening AL Central race.Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning, Verlander pitched six solid innings and the Tigers beat the Red Sox 4-2 to spoil Drew Pomeranzs second start with Boston.Victor Martinez and James McCann also drove in runs for the Tigers. Detroit pulled within 5 1/2 games of idle AL Central-leading Cleveland.I think its start by start, Verlander said. You tend to string starts together, occasionally. Im not thinking about the last one that happened, just thinking about the next one.Verlander (10-6) allowed one run and five hits and struck out five to pick up the victory. He is 3-0 in his last five starts.Francisco Rodriguez earned his 28th save.Pomeranz (8-8), recently acquired from the San Diego Padres, gave up four hits and struck out seven in six innings. Both of the runs he allowed came via Iglesias homer.Boston, which had scored 46 runs in its last six outings, failed to homer Monday. That ended a streak of 15 straight games with at least one.Pomeranz entered Mondays start looking to bounce back from his dismal Boston debut last week against San Francisco, in which he gave up five runs in just three innings.He was cruising through five innings Monday, allowing just two hits. That changed in the sixth when Iglesias crushed Pomeranzs fastball high over the Green Monster in left for a two-run homer to put the Tigers up 2-1.It was the first career homer in Fenway for Iglesias, who started his career in Boston before being traded to Detroit in 2013.When I was here I never had the opportunity to do that so I was really happy to do that against them, he said.Iglesias scored his second run of the game in the eighth, trotting across home plate on Martinezs single off reliever Clay Buchholz to make it 4-1.I had a good curveball tonight. I was locating my fastball a lot better, Pomeranz said. I was in a lot better counts all night. I really made one bad pitch.Boston loaded the bases on three straight singles off Justin Wilson to begin its half of the eighth. A single by Sandy Leon pulled the Red Sox within 4-2, but Wilson settled down to get an out and Rodriguez came on to help end the rally.Bostons hitters had several long at-bats against Verlander, pushing his pitch count above 40 through just two innings. In the second, Travis Shaw lined a double into the right-field corner, scoring Jackie Bradley Jr.TRAINERS ROOMTigers: RHP Jordan Zimmermann, who has been sidelined since July 1 with a right neck strain, began a rehab assignment in Triple-A Toledo on Sunday night.Red Sox: CF Mookie Betts returned to the lineup Monday after missing a pair of games with right knee soreness. ... Manager John Farrell said RHP Craig Kimbrel (left knee surgery) is progressing and looked good in a short bullpen session. He could make a rehab start this weekend.KEEPING OPTIONS OPENRed Sox management is keeping its ears open to trade offers, but president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said its not something he believes must happen to make a postseason push. He thinks the bullpen, which has been battered by injuries, will bounce back when Junichi Tazawa and Kimbrel are back to full strength. I think were in position where were open-minded, but not a necessity, Dombrowski said.RETURN TRIPTigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia made his first return to Fenway Park since he left in free agency in 2013 to join the Miami Marlins. The Red Sox honored him with a video tribute after the second inning. I feel like Boston gave me my second chance, he said. I was in Texas, sitting in Triple-A and they traded for me, gave me an opportunity to play here -- kind of resurge, resurrect my career.UP NEXTTigers: RHP Mike Pelfrey (3-9, 4.78 ERA) is coming off a victory at Chicago last week, in which he allowed the White Sox just one run in 5 1/3 innings. Pelfrey hasnt allowed a home run his last eight road starts, spanning 45 1/3 innings.Red Sox: RHP Steven Wright (12-5, 2.67) has won his last four starts. His lone appearance against Detroit was last July, when he allowed four runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss.---Follow Kyle Hightower on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/khightower Air Max 90 Cheap China .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week.

DETROIT -- The Detroit Pistons are ready to move downtown -- into what is already being billed as one of the most unique sports neighborhoods in the nation.The Pistons formally announced plans Tuesday to move into Little Caesars Arena next season and share that new venue with the Detroit Red Wings, a relocation that would put all four of the citys major sports teams within a few blocks of each other. The arena is being built in the same part of downtown where the Tigers and Lions host their games at Comerica Park and Ford Field, respectively.Tuesdays news conference was held in a room at Cass Tech High School that had a view of all three of those nearby sports venues.This is the only city now with all four teams in the downtown area, Mayor Mike Duggan said. You can walk within 10 minutes to all of them. You can go around the country, and there are cities where all four teams are somewhere in the border of their city. In Denver, theyve got basketball and hockey and baseball downtown, and the Broncos play a mile outside.Duggan said after moving downtown next season, the Pistons will have their headquarters and a practice facility in the city by 2018.Duggan called the agreement for the Pistons to move preliminary and said final agreements would likely be approved early next year by Detroits Downtown Development Authority, the Michigan Strategic Fund and the Detroit City Council. The agreement calls for a contribution of $34.5 million from the DDA to cover modifications to the new arena to accommodate an NBA team.Duggan said by law, those funds can only be used for infrastructure and economic development downtown.These funds have to be spent on economic development purposes in this region, and we couldnt think of anything more important than bringing the Pistons back home, he said.Michael LaFaive of the Michigan-based Mackinac Center for Public Policy was critical of the plan, saying taxpayers shouldnt be put in a position to back business ventures of private entrepreneurs.Let entrepreneurs risk their own resources and flourish or flounder on their own accord, he said in an email.Duggan and Pistons owner Tom Gores were at the news conference, along with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and Ilitch Holdings President and CEO Christopher Ilitch. The Red Wings are owned by Mike and Marian Ilitch, and Gores said the oppportunity to partner with them played a big role in the decision to move.ddddddddddddI thought this would be a great partnership, and I would tell you, if I didnt feel it, then we have a home, and we wouldve stayed there, Gores said. But theres a bigger picture here.The Red Wings are in their final season at Joe Louis Arena before the NHL team moves to Little Caesars Arena. The Pistons have played at The Palace of Auburn Hills since 1988 and were at the Pontiac Silverdome for a decade before that.The Pistons were downtown when they called Cobo Arena home from 1961-78 before heading to Pontiac and then Auburn Hills. The Palace is about 30 miles from downtown Detroit.Watching our city decline over the years has been difficult, but emotionally, the most painful experiences were when our sports franchises either left town or tried to leave town, Duggan said.The Lions also played at the Silverdome before moving to Ford Field in 2002. Now, the Pistons are eager to make the same move to downtown Detroit.Weve seen these trends of our teams moving really from suburban areas outside of urban areas, back into downtown areas, Silver said. Little Caesars Arena is just another fantastic example of that trend.The Pistons move is subject to NBA approval and is expected to be presented to the board of governors sometime after Jan. 1.The Palace was built with private funds by William Davidson, who owned the Pistons before his death in 2009. The team has won three championships in Auburn Hills, although the atmosphere slipped in recent years as the Pistons went through a rough stretch.Detroit returned to the playoffs last season for the first time since 2009.Gores bought the Pistons from Karen Davidson in 2011, and by that point, the team had become a suburban outlier, with the Lions having moved downtown to play alongside the Ilitch-owned Tigers and Red Wings.Now, Gores is joining forces with the Ilitches and moving his team into that same area.This community is getting the world-class sports and entertainment district it deserves, Christopher Ilitch said. A perfect addition to a city in the midst of an incredible and historic transformation.---Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtrister ' ' '
