Mike B. | On 18, Aug 2015
Danny Salazar pitched another gem on Monday, and with some help from a five-run fourth, he led the Indians to an 8-2 win in the series opener in Boston. The Indians have won six of their last nine games.
Salazar allowed just one run on four hits in seven innings, and over his last seven starts, has a 1.45 ERA (8 ER/49.2 IP) with 48 strikeouts.
The Indians trailed, though, before a five-run fourth. Abraham Almonte singled, scoring Michael Brantley, who doubled, Lonnie Chisenhall doubled home Carlos Santana (single) and Almonte, Jerry Sands drove in Yan Gomes (walk) with an RBI groundout and Mike Aviles singled in Chisenhall.
Santana and Chisenhall added solo homers and Michael Brantley an RBI fielder’s choice for the remaining Tribe scoring.
W: Danny Salazar (11-6)
