The Indians beat the Red Sox, 7-6, on Wednesday night, to earn the club’s first victory of the 2016 season.
The Tribe took a 4-0 lead in the first on a Jason Kipnis RBI double and a Carlos Santana three-run homer. After Boston regained the lead with a four-run sixth, Juan Uribe managed a sac fly in the sixth before Mike Napoli’s solo shot in the seventh, which proved to be the game-winner.
Zach McAllister, Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen combined to throw 3.2 scoreless innings to seal the victory.
