The Indians put together a 12-hit attack on Thursday night and left Fenway Park with an 8-3 victory, behind veteran starter Derek Lowe.
Lowe, a former Red Sox pitcher came back to Beantown and easily outdueled Josh Beckett. Lowe allowed just two runs over six innings and struck out two. Beckett heard the wrath of the Red Sox fans, giving up seven hits and seven runs and getting knocked out of the game in the third inning.
The Indians chased him thanks to a Jack Hannahan two-run homer in the second and a power explosion in the third. Jason Kipnis homered, while Shin-Soo Choo and Michael Brantley contributed to the attack. Brantley had four hits for the Indians in the runaway win.
Sipp, Smith, Pestano, and Hagadone all came on for the Bullpen Mafia and did the job.
Lowe is now 5-1 on the season.
The Indians, now 18-13, will be back at it Friday night at the 100-year-old ballpark.
