CLEVELAND — It was a close game for the Cleveland Indians (52-61) Friday evening, but they ultimately fell to the visiting Boston Red Sox (56-58) in game two of the four-game series. The final score was 3-2, Red Sox.
The Indians were the first to score with a home run in the first inning by Asdrubal Cabrera, giving the Tribe the lead through the third inning. A run in the fourth inning scored by Red Sox’s Mike Aviles tied the game at 1 through the fifth inning. The Red Sox took the lead in the sixth inning with a two-run home run by Cody Ross which brought in Dustin Pedroia, bringing the score to 3-1 in favor of the Red Sox.
Also in the sixth inning, the Indians managed to add one more to their score with a run scored by Jason Donald. However that would be the only runs both teams would score as the remainder of the innings went without runs.
There was one injury to make note of: Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks left the game after being hit on the right wrist by a pitch in the ninth inning.
The Indians lost game two of a four-game series with the Red Sox by a score of 3-2. Game three of the series is on Saturday with first pitch set for 6:05 p.m.
