Boston opened a 10-game road trip with a 5-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians that featured bad baserunning, a blown 3-1 lead, and an ineffective Felix Doubront.
Doubront didn't get out of the 5th inning, charged with 4 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks while striking out 4. With the loss, his record dropped to 10-6 on the season.
Adrian Gonzalez (pictured) gave the Red Sox a 2-1 lead in the top of the 4th inning with his 12th home run of the season, and Boston would add another run in the top of the 5th before Cleveland scored 3 times in the bottom of the 5th to take the lead. The Indians added an insurance run in the bottom of the 8th.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia had a very rough night with 3 strikeouts; he now has 101 on the season. Jim Monaghan 8/09/2012 10:18:00 PM Tweet
