The Detroit Tigers left everything soaked after a 9-7 loss to the Red Sox at home

Detroit Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario, who was playing through puddles on the inside, made the mistake that shaped the outcome of Wednesday afternoon’s game, but left-back Eduardo Rodriguez was not guilty.

“My job is to get the next guy out,” Rodriguez said.

A throwing error from Candelario with two outs in the fourth inning led the Boston Red Sox to attack Rodriguez in five more runs in what ended up being a six-run frame for the road team.

The Tigers lost, 9-7.

“No apologies,” Candelario said. “I just made the mistake. That’s what it is. It’s always disappointing not to make those games, but we will go from there. We will work hard not to make those mistakes again.”

Tiger's left fielder Austin Meadows is trying to rob a homer who was hit by Enrique Hernandez during the third inning action on Wednesday, April 13, 2022 at Comerica Park in Detroit.

Fifteen minutes after the first pitch, the rain began to fall on Comerica Park and continued until the bottom of the fifth inning. The crew took the course several times to pour fresh soil in an attempt to preserve the sloppy infield, batter’s box and pitcher’s mound.

Detroit fell to a record of 2-4, losing rows against each other to the Chicago White Sox and Red Sox to open the 2022 season. The Tigers travel to Kansas City for a four-game series.
