Indians homer in 19th straight game, beating Red Sox 11-5

Sports

BOSTON (AP) — Franmil Reyes homered over the Green Monster to spark a three-run third inning — Cleveland’s franchise-record tying 19th straight game with a home run — and the Indians salvaged the finale of the series with an 11-5 victory over the COVID-impacted Boston Red Sox.

Reyes added a two-run double and went 4 for 4, and Bradley Zimmer had a two-run single for the Indians, who matched their single-season record streak of homering in consecutive games, set in May of 2000.

The Red Sox scratched scheduled starter Nick Pivetta before the game, placing him on the COVID-19-related injured list.

About 30 minutes before the first pitch, they added infielder/outfielder Danny Santana to the list, giving them 11 players, six position and five pitchers, in the last 10 days.
