The Red Sox had gone ahead 5-3 in the sixth on consecutive homers by Daniel Nava and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. But closer Joel Hanrahan couldn't hold the lead on a night when their nearly 10-year home sellout streak ended after two seasons in which they missed the playoffs.
Chris Davis led off the ninth with his fifth homer. Hanrahan (0-1) retired the next two batters, then allowed a single by Ryan Flaherty. He then walked Nolan Reimold and Nate McLouth to load the bases and threw a wild pitch that brought pinch runner Alexi Casilla home with the tying run.
On the next pitch, Machado hit the ball over the Green Monster for his first homer.
Boston's sellout streak began on May 15, 2003, lasted 820 games, including the postseason, and was the longest in major pro sports history. It broke the record of 814 set by the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers from 1977-95.
BLUE JAYS 8, TIGERS 6
DETROIT -- J.P. Arencibia hit a three-run double in the seventh inning and Toronto rallied from a five-run deficit to beat Detroit.
Detroit led 6-1 in the sixth, but starter Rick Porcello allowed hits to the first three batters. They all eventually scored, and Toronto added four more runs the following inning. Brayan Villarreal (0-1) came on with one on and one out in the seventh and proceeded to walk three straight hitters, forcing in a run. Arendcibia followed with a drive to the gap in left-center off Octavio Dotel.
RAYS 2, RANGERS 0
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Matt Moore and four Rays relievers combined on a five-hitter and Tampa Bay beat Texas in the coldest day game ever at Rangers Ballpark.
It was only 39 degrees when the game started after a rain delay of 1 hour, 29 minutes. That was 40 degrees colder than Tuesday night.
Evan Longoria had a sacrifice fly for the Rays, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Their other run came on a grounder after Derek Holland (0-1) walked the bases loaded, his only three walks in his eight innings.
Moore (2-0) limited Texas to a single and struck out five in five-plus innings, but walked six.
ROYALS 3, TWINS 0
Butler homered in the first, while Francoeur led off the seventh with a home run to extend his hitting streak to seven games. The Royals got another run in the seventh when Alcides Escobar's single scored Chris Getz. Salvador Perez had three of the nine Kansas City hits.
Davis (1-0) held the Twins to four singles in five scoreless innings, striking out six, walking three and hitting a batter.
Twins right-hander Liam Hendriks (0-1) took the loss.
