The Red Sox jumped on Indians starter Trevor Bauer, knocking him out of the game in the second and winning, 9-1, on Tuesday.
Bauer has struggled in his last three starts, and fell victim to Mookie Betts’ three-run double in the second, the biggest blow.
The Indians scored on Michael Brantley’s ninth homer, a solo shot; Brantley has three hits in two games since returning from a sore left shoulder.
W: Eduardo Rodriguez (7-5)
L: Trevor Bauer (9-10)
HR: Brantley (9, 7th inning off Rodríguez 0 on, 0 Out)
