Sam Kennedy gets promoted to Red Sox CEO, contract extension

Red Sox's Fister beats Indians for his first win of season

On Tuesday, the Cleveland Indians outfielder leaped high over the center-field wall at Fenway Park, secured the ball and did a back flip into the bullpen to rob Red Sox designated hitter Hanley Ramirez of a home run. Allen's pitch went wild, eluding catcher Yan Gomes and allowing Moreland to reach first.

His arrival, coupled with the promotion of the young phenom Rafael Devers, has this Red Sox team showing life again just before the division started getting out of their grasp.

Lindor, Guyer, Jose Ramirez, Encarnacion and Santana all had multiple hits for the Indians, with Ramirez leading the way with three.

Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox lock horns in the second of the three game series tonight.

Manaea credited Brady while holding firm that he himself can rebound in his next start. Sale made it through five innings, but allowed seven runs of his own.

But Cleveland hit three straight singles off Sale in the top of the first, and the offensive barrage began.

Hector Rondon (3-1) got five outs for the win and Mike Montgomery pitched three innings for his third save. The right-hander is 0-2 with a 12.91 ERA in three games (two starts) over 7 2/3 innings vs. Boston.

Kennedy, a MA native, has been with the Red Sox organization since before the 2002 season. It is definitely looking like the Indians could pull off an away win and leave the Red Sox struggling to get back on track.

Ramirez got up with Boston trailing 7-5 in the fifth inning.

On Tuesday, Eckersley was at the Red Sox-Cleveland game not for NESN, but to fulfill a commitment to the team by meeting with fans at Fenway Park's Legends Suite.

Sandy Leon had been behind the plate for each of Chris Sale's outings, but last night Vazquezstarted because Leon is dealing with a right knee injury. Fister is 0-5 this year and has a 7.46 ERA. "That particular one, I got back and I tried to get to the fence first".

Casey Lawrence (1-3) picked up his first Major League Baseball win after after entering the game in the fourth inning.

Holt's ensuing RBI single and Nunez's RBI double tied it 5-5 and ended Carrasco's night after only 56 pitches.

The Indians placed RHP Josh Tomlin on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring and recalled LHP Tyler Olson from Triple-A Columbus.

Toronto came out on top after dropping three of four and snapped a four-game road losing streak.

"He's dealt with quite a bit of pain", Sox manager John Farrell said.
