Former Sox Pitcher Beats His Former Teammates

CLEVELAND (AP) – Justin Masterson beat his former team with his

first career shutout as the Cleveland Indians routed the Boston Red

Sox 11-0 Wednesday night.

Travis Hafner hit his 10th career grand slam – first since May

7, 2007 – in an eight-run eighth inning against Boston's bullpen.

Boof Bonser and Joe Nelson combined to throw 60 pitches to 14

batters, walking five and allowing seven hits.

Masterson (2-5) faced the Red Sox for the first time and earned

his second straight win after a long losing streak. The

right-hander struck out six, walked two and allowed a pair of

harmless one-out singles – to Victor Martinez in the third inning

and J.D. Drew in the fifth.
