Tight-Knit Red Sox Team Wins Again, 6-3

Just two days removed from the attack on Boston, the Red Sox again broke out to an early lead and held on for a victory in Cleveland. The 6-3 win was propelled by another decent start by Alfredo Aceves, timely hitting and another door-slamming performance by the bullpen. Mike Napoli and Daniel Nava each drove in two runs, while spot-starting first-baseman Mike Carp went 3 for 3 with an RBI. Jacoby Ellsbury, Shane Victorino and Dustin Pedroia also had multiple-hit performances. The Red Sox have now won five straight and will play one more at Progressive Field before they head back to Boston for a 10-game homestand beginning on Friday.
