BOSTON -- Miguel Cabrera was sitting at his locker when a slight smile appeared as he was asked about how well the Detroit Tigers have started this season. Joe Montana Super Bowl Jersey . "I mean, it looks like it," he said after the Tigers completed a three-game series sweep over Boston with their 11th straight road win, 6-2 over the Red Sox on Sunday night. "Our coaches, our staff make sure we got out there ready to play," he said. "You always want to do that. Its the way to play. You feel more comfortable." Victor Martinez hit a two-run homer and Torii Hunter added a solo shot as the Tigers posted their sixth consecutive win and 15th in 18 games to raise their majors-best record to 27-12. Ian Kinsler had four hits, and Cabrera added three and two RBIs as Detroit dominated in the first meeting since losing last seasons AL championship series to the eventual World Series champion Red Sox in six games. "It really comes down to the starting pitching and the bullpen," Detroits first-year manager Brad Ausmus said. "The starters have set the tempo and got us deep into the game. Weve also got some big hits. Miggy and Victor have been hitting well all season long." Xander Bogaerts had two hits and an RBI for struggling Boston, which has lost a season-high four straight. It was the first time the Red Sox were swept at home in a multigame series by the Tigers since losing four in June of 1983. "With the top of their order, any mistake we made, we paid for it," Boston manager John Farrell said. "They came in swinging the bats well, and when Jake (Peavy) missed his location, that lineup made us pay for it." Bostons David Ortiz went 0 for 2 with two walks, ending his 10-game hitting streak.

Last seasons AL ERA champ gave up two runs -- one earned -- and five hits, striking out three and walking three, including one intentional to Ortiz on a 3-2 pitch. "He was actually pretty crisp. Fastball, changeup, slider all looked pretty good," Ausmus said. "Command around the zone was pretty good. We wanted to stop him around 85ish pitches. He got us through five. A pretty good first start back off the DL." Trailing 1-0 in the third, the Tigers scored three runs off Peavy (1-2). Cabreras RBI single tied it before Martinez followed with his homer into Bostons bullpen. They made it 4-1 on Cabreras sacrifice fly in the fifth. Peavy was tagged for five runs on 11 hits in six innings. He has given up at least one homer in each of his nine starts, the majors longest active streak. "We just caught a team when they were hot and they played better throughout the series than we did," Peavy said. Hunters homer, which cleared the Green Monster and left Fenway Park entirely, made it 6-2 in the seventh. Boston loaded the bases with one out in the fifth, but managed only one run to cut it to 4-2 when Dustin Pedroia scored after third baseman Don Kelly threw low to the plate on a slow grounder for an error. Grady Sizemore then lined to Sanchez, who fired to third and doubled off Shane Victorino. Mike Avilas RBI single increased Detroits lead to 5-2 in the sixth. The Red Sox -- held to one run in the first two games -- hadnt led in the series until Bogaerts RBI single gave them a 1-0 edge in the second. NOTES: Peavy has thrown 1,999 career innings. ...

"Hes certainly got a history and knowledge and a high baseball IQ," general manager Terry Ryan said.LEICESTER, England -- Manchester United twice surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 5-3 to Leicester in a wild Premier League game on Sunday, with the promoted side scoring four times in 20 minutes to cap its thrilling comeback. Angel Di Marias exquisite chip put United 2-0 ahead in the 16th minute but it proved in vain as Leicester came from 3-1 down with 28 minutes left. Penalties by David Nugent and Leonardo Ulloa -- the second after Tyler Blacketts sending-off -- came either side of goals by Esteban Cambiasso and Jamie Vardy as Uniteds defence imploded at King Power Stadium. Robin van Persie and Di Maria scored to give United a great start before Ulloa reduced the deficit in the 18th with a third goal in a five-minute span. Ander Herrera regained the two-goal lead with a deft flick before United collapsed, leaving the team with five points from its opening five games. "We have too many players who want to seek for the goal," United manager Louis van Gaal said. "It is not good," he added, "because we have the game in our pocket and gave it away." After beating Queens Park Rangers 4-0 last weekend, Uniteds all-star attack looks in good shape, with Radamel Falcao making his first start and setting up Van Persies deflected header for the 13th-minute opener. Di Maria repaid even more of his $99 million price tag by producing another effervescent display and his goal -- a scooop over the goalkeeper from about 15 yards (meters) out -- would have been the highlight on another day. Tevin Coleman Super Bowl Jersey. But United continue to look vulnerable defensively, with Blacketts upcoming suspension and a first-half injury to Jonny Evans not helping. Leicester could have won by even more as it created chance after chance in the final minutes. "It was absolutely brilliant," said Vardy. "We exploited their weaknesses and we got the result." Leicesters fightback was sparked by a penalty awarded after Rafael da Silva was adjudged to have pushed Vardy in the back. The striker appeared to have got away with a nudge on Rafael seconds earlier. Nugent slammed his penalty down the middle, Cambiasso drove in a low shot less than two minutes later for the equalizer before Vardy was sent clean through in the 79th minute to slip a low shot past David de Gea, with no United defender near him. Blackett was bundled off the ball by Vardy in the 83rd minute and, in attempts to get the ball back, tackled the striker from behind. Blackett was shown a straight red card and Ulloa made no mistake from the spot. "How is it possible to give this game away?" Van Gaal said. "Leicester has proven already in four games that they have a strong character and that when they are 3-1 down, you can play all the game with more possession but you cannot do these kind of things."
