Kevin Youkilis hit a sacrifice fly in the first to bring in Boston's first run.
NOTES: Before the game, the Red Sox placed closer Jonathan Papelbon on the bereavement list. ... Squeezed out of at-bats, Indians OF/1B Matt LaPorta was optioned to Triple-A Columbus. Manager Manny Acta said LaPorta, acquired in the 2008 deal from Milwaukee for CC Sabathia, will benefit more by playing every day in the minors than sitting and getting occasional time in Cleveland. Acta said the club sees LaPorta as a future first baseman. ... Tito Francona, the father of Red Sox manager Terry Francona, visited his son before the game. The elder Francona drove over from his home in Western Pennsylvania. ... The Indians selected LHP Drew Pomeranz with the No. 5 overall pick in the baseball draft. It was Cleveland's highest selection since 1992. Pomeranz went 9-2 this season for Mississippi.
