The Detroit Tigers and starting pitcher Rick Porcello were looking to continue their phenomenal start to the 2014 MLB season against the Boston Red Sox. Detroit manager Brad Ausmus led the (25-12) Tigers into Fenway Park with the best record in baseball.

The Los Angeles Dodgers were hoping to continue their dominance over the Arizona Diamondbacks by starting their ace Clayton Kershaw. The Diamondbacks have struggled at home this season, winning the fewest games (4) of all MLB teams at home.
