"That's sports. There's ups and downs. Nobody's at the peak of their game forever," Verlander said. "I'll get back there. I will. It's just, like I said, finding that click — finding that rhythm."

Detroit led 2-0 after the first inning, but Verlander gave up two runs in the second.

The Tigers scored a run in the bottom of the second, but Verlander again couldn't hold the lead. Pedroia reached on an infield single, and David Ortiz's single put runners on first and third. Mike Napoli's grounder tied the game at 3.

Boston starter Felix Doubront was in trouble at the start, walking the first two Detroit hitters and then allowing Cabrera's double that bounced over the wall in center field for the slugger's 75th RBI of the year.

Fielder's RBI groundout made it 2-0, but Jacoby Ellsbury made a nice sliding catch in center on Peralta's drive for the third out, preventing any more scoring.

Detroit loaded the bases for Hunter with two outs in the fourth, but Victorino made a nice catch and held on while slamming into the wall in foul ground in right.

Boston is giving Andrew Bailey a break from closing after he lost Thursday's game at Detroit in the ninth inning. He came on with a one-run lead in the seventh Sunday but allowed singles to Jackson and Cabrera before giving way to Miller.

Detroit's bullpen has also been maligned this year, but Drew Smyly pitched 2 2-3 scoreless innings before Benoit finished.

Fielder was Detroit's designated hitter, leaving Martinez to make a rare appearance at first base. Martinez made a nice play in the sixth, diving to his left to knock down Ellsbury's grounder, then flipping the ball backward to Smyly, who covered for the 3-1 putout.

Hunter made a tumbling catch in right for the last out of the game.

NOTES: Boston did not put LHP Franklin Morales on the DL after he exited Saturday night's game with discomfort in his throwing shoulder. Farrell said Morales would be evaluated thoroughly on Monday. ... Both teams are off Monday. Boston returns home and sends RHP Ryan Dempster (4-8) to the mound against Colorado RHP Juan Nicasio (4-3) on Tuesday night. Detroit's homestand continues Tuesday night. Tigers RHP Rick Porcello (4-4) faces LHP C.J. Wilson (6-5) of the Los Angeles Angels.
