Joe Kelly no-hit the Indians through 6.2 innings in his first start coming off the disabled list as the Red Sox topped Cleveland 9-1 at Fenway Park on Saturday afternoon.

Kelly (pictured) struck out seven and walked three (all in the fifth inning) and allowed just one hit - a two-out double in the sixth to Juan Uribe - before manager John Farrell went to his bullpen.

The offense was in sync, too, banging out 13 hits led by Mookie Betts' three hits which included a solo home run and a grand slam. Xander Bogaerts, David Ortiz, Hanley Ramirez, and Travis Shaw each had multi-hit games.

Jackie Bradley, Jr. had an infield hit in the sixth inning to extend his hitting streak to 26 straight games. He also made a tremendous sliding catch in the top of the seventh that kept Kelly's no-hit bid alive.
