BOSTON — Danny Salazar pitched seven strong innings to cool off Boston’s hot bats, and Lonnie Chisenhall had a solo homer and three RBIs to carry the Cleveland Indians past the Red Sox 8-2 on Monday night.

Carlos Santana also hit a solo shot, and Chisenhall’s two-run double highlighted a five-run fourth that lifted Cleveland to its sixth win in nine games.

Salazar (11-6) allowed one run on four hits, striking out five and walking one. He’s given up two-or-fewer runs in six of his last seven starts.

Travis Shaw drove in both Boston runs with a solo homer and an RBI single for the Red Sox, who scored 45 runs on 60 hits in their previous three games against Seattle.

The Indians broke a scoreless tie with their five-run inning against Matt Barnes (3-3).
