      Miguel Cabrera hit a solo homer and RBI single, Rick Porcello pitched eight solid innings to win his sixth straight start and the red-hot Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 6-1 Saturday night.

      It was the 10th consecutive road win for the Tigers, who are a majors' best 26-12. Detroit won for the 14th time in 17 games.

      Porcello (7-1) gave up one run, six hits, striking out four and walking one.
