The Boston Red Sox started off a two game series with the Cleveland Indians on the right foot.
The game was tight all the way through, with Jon Lester pitching a no-hitter through three innings and then unraveling in the fourth, giving up two runs and three hits.
Julian Tavarez worked out of a bases-loaded jam to help keep the Sox down by three. Then the Sox cam back and scored three in ninth off Joe Borowski capped by a Manny Ramirez two-run home run.
Some good news: David Ortiz broke out of a 0-17 slump, going 2-5 (the slump was the worst of his career)
Julian Tavarez has established himself a good middle to long relief pitcher.
