Sox Blow Lead and Game In Cleveland

Indians edge Red Sox 3-2

AP Sports Writer
      CLEVELAND (AP) – Asdrubal Cabrera's two-out RBI double in the
eighth inning – the latest big hit delivered by Cleveland's
shortstop – rallied the Indians to a 3-2 win on Monday night over
the Boston Red Sox, who also lost second baseman Dustin Pedroia
with a leg injury.
      Cabrera, who went 5 for 5 with two homers and five RBIs on
Sunday, drove his double off reliever Daniel Bard (1-4) to the wall
in left field, scoring Michael Brantley and helping the Indians win
their fourth straight and improve to 19-4 at home.
      Cabrera also homered in the fourth, his third homer in two days.
      Joe Smith (2-1) got one out in the eighth, and closer Chris
Perez got Carl Crawford to bounce into a game-ending double play
for his 13th save.
      Trailing 2-1 and being held in check by Boston starter Clay
Buchholz, the Indians came up with some more late-inning magic.
