Mike Aviles started the rally in the 12th with a one-out infield
single off Edward Mujica (2-2) and Michael Bourn followed with a
single to right to move Aviles to third. The Red Sox brought in an
extra infielder to try to keep the winning run at third but Cabrera
drove an 0-1 splitter on a line out to right.
Cabrera scored three runs and David Murphy added two RBIs while
Carlos Carrasco (1-3) earned the win in relief for the Indians, who
ran their winning streak to six straight. David Ortiz homered and
Brock Holt drove in two for Boston in a game that finished nearly
seven hours after the scheduled start due to a two-hour, 42-minute
rain delay and the extra innings.
Ortiz crushed an 0-2 slider into the seats in right for a two-run
blast that put Boston on top 2-1 in the sixth. Cleveland came right
back in the bottom of the frame, putting the first two on with a
walk and a hit against Brandon Workman before Chris Capuano came on
and surrendered an RBI single to Jason Kipnis, a bunt single to load
the bases and Murphy's two-run double that gave Cleveland a 4-2
The Red Sox knocked Corey Kluber out in the seventh, putting the
first two on with a walk and a single and moving them over on a bunt
before Holt's two-run single to center knotted it at 4 and ended
