A seven-run fifth inning is more than enough for the Cleveland Indians, as they defeat the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park by a 7-3 final to take a 3-1 lead in the American League Championship Series.
Paul Byrd earns his second win of the postseason with five innings of work on the mound. Casey Blake starts the scoring for the Tribe in the fifth with a leadoff home run off of Boston losing pitcher Tim Wakefield. Asdrubal Cabrera and Victor Martinez supply runs on singles before a three-run home run from Jhonny Peralta. Blake, the tenth of 12 men to bat in the inning, adds another RBI with a single to center.
Despite being just one win away from their third trip to the World Series since 1995, this will be the final win this season for the Indians.
