After holding a 3-1 lead in the ALCS, the Cleveland Indians drop their third straight game and are eliminated from the postseason by the Boston Red Sox in an 11-2 shellacking at Fenway Park.
Boston scores single runs in each of the first three innings before Cleveland chips back with a pair in the fourth and fifth. The Indians missed an opportunity in the seventh when the still-speedy Kenny Lofton was held at third base by coach Joel Skinner. He would not score. The Red Sox responded with two in the bottom of the inning and six in the eighth for the dagger.
The Red Sox will proceed to sweep the Colorado Rockies in four games in the World Series. October 21st is a bad day in general in Indians history, as the team lost their lone two games played on this date in the World Series, 3-2 in 1995 to the Atlanta Braves and 14-11 in 1997 to the Florida Marlins.
