Box Score: Indians 8, Red Sox 3

The Indians jumped all over Josh Beckett, chasing him in the third inning after plating seven. Derek Lowe earned his fifth win, which must be killing the faithful in Bawston. Kipnis hit his sixth home run, and Jack Hannahan hit one of his own. Pestano made things interesting by loading the bases, but got out of the eighth without surrendering a run.

    Great to see Brantley come back strong after a rough 5 game stretch where he went 3-19 and 0 for last 7 and that drop the other night..  offensive MVP tonight and brought his average up to .256.  let’s get that up to .280 sonny!

    Not sure if anyone else noticed, but after walking off the mound in the 1st, Beckett appeared to be yelling something at the Indians dugout. We turned around and scored 7. Not sure what he said, but sure did provide a spark!!

    It was only a matter of time until Brantley started to get hits. He has had quality at bats for the longest time, just seemed to run into bad luck. Hafner and Santana didn’t play all that well, but the rest of the team stepped up.

    Derek Lowe is the anti-Masterson.  We just seem to lift him up and get him wins (whereas how many QS have we let Masterson get a ND on the last 2 years?)
