Victor Martinez #41 of the Detroit Tigers is congratulated by teammate Austin Jackson #14 after hitting a two-run home run in the third inning against the Boston Red Sox during the game at Fenway Park on May 18, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts.

If you thought Fenway Park looked a little cleaner than normal after Sunday’s night game, you were right. So why was it so clean you ask?

Well, the Detroit Tigers broke out their brooms when they completed a weekend sweep of the Boston Red Sox with a 6-2 win. It’s the 11th straight road win for the Tigers. It is also the first time since the wretched 2012 season where the local nine has lost four games in a row.

The top three hitters in the Tigers order, Ian Kinsler (four hits), Torii Hunter (two hits, RBI) and Miguel Cabrera (three hits, 2 RBIs) did the most damage by going a combined 9-for-14 in the game with three RBIs. Oh and former catcher Victor Martinez delivered the decisive blow in the 3rd with a two-run home run.

Jake Peavy struggled with the command of his breaking stuff and it showed as evidenced by the numbers above. He allowed five runs on 11 hits with two strikeouts over over six innings of work.

Xander Bogaerts had two hits to lead the Red Sox and had the only RBI of the night on a single in the 2nd inning. The other Red Sox run scored on a Mike Napoli fielder’s choice with the bases loaded.
