BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox held on after blowing three previous leads to beat the Tigers 12-9.

Franchy Cordero came off the bench with three hits to snap an 0-for-25 slump, then brought home the game-winning run in the eighth with the help of Detroit’s fourth error.

The Red Sox led 4-1, 5-4 and 8-7 before falling behind 9-8 and rallying one last time, scoring four runs in the eighth. Rafael Devers drove in three runs on a pair of singles.

But the Red Sox third baseman also committed two errors. Matt Andriese earned the win despite giving up the lead in the eighth.
