Heading to Cleveland to face the Indians and some old friends on a seven-game winning, things were looking up for the Boston Red Sox. But after rallying to tie the game in the 7th last night, Andrew Miller‘s nemesis Michael Bourn got the best of him and now the Red Sox have lost two straight games.
Bourn delivered a two-run double in the bottom half of the inning and the Indians bullpen made it hold up in a 5-3 win over Red Sox at Progressive Field.
Xander Bogaerts continues to shine offensively for the local nine as he had two extra base hits, a double and a solo home run. He scored two runs including the game-tying run at the time off the bat of Dustin Pedroia.
Jonathan Herrera added the other RBI for the Red Sox with a single in the 6th inning. He along with Pedroia also had two hits.
Jake Peavy was saddled with the loss after allowing all five runs to come across in 6 1/3 innings. Miller had been responsible for the two runners Peavy left him with.
There’s no sense in panicking just yet. This is how the season has gone so far. It just would be nice to see them get back on track and string some more wins together and get back up over .500.
