It may have been the preseason, but Patriots fans should be encourage by Aaron Dobson's spectacular leaping catch for a touchdown in his debut.

Tigers Rough Up Sox 7-2

The Tigers got their first win of the season, beating the Red Sox 7-2 in front of a sold out crowd. Marcus Thames and Carlos Guillen homered for Detroit, while new acquisition Edgar Renteria had three hits against his former ball club.

Mike Lowell left the game with a sprained thumb after diving for a sharp grounder. Terry Francona said for now, Lowell is listed as day-to-day.

Jon Lester pitched scoreless baseball through the first three innings. With the Sox up 2-0, the Tigers broke through in the fourth inning. Lester finished with 5 1/3 innings, five hits, four earned runs, and four walks.

Tigers catcher Pudge Rodriguez got the 2,500th hit of his career. He doesn’t need 3000 hits to get in, he’s almost a lock in my book (unless those steroid allegations are true).

The Sox play the Tigers in the rubber match Thursday with Tim Wakefield on the hill opposing lefty Nate Robertson. Game time is set for 7:05.
