On Sunday afternoon, the Red Sox seemed to take out a year's worth of frustration out on the hapless Cleveland Indians. Behind six brilliant innings from Jon Lester (1 earned run, 12 strikeouts, 2 walks), Boston unloaded on five Tribe hurlers for 16 hits in a blowout 14-1 victory at the Former Jake On The Lake. Carl Crawford and Mike Aviles had three hits each, and Adrian Gonzalez continued hist torrid post-All Star tear—going 2 for 4 with 4 RBIs (including his 13th HR). Crawford had three RBIs, Ellsbury two. So, it's on to Baltimore to take on the mighty (now third place) O's.
