Jacoby Ellsbury's 2-out, 2-RBI double in the bottom of the 9th inning capped a 4-run rally and lifted the Red Sox to a 6-5 win over the Cleveland Indians at Fenway Park.

Dustin Pedroia left off the 9th inning with a walk, followed by a David Ortiz double. Pedroia came in on a ground out by Mike Napoli. Ortiz stole third (his second steal of third base this season) and scored on another ground out by Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Stephen Drew walked and was singled to third by Jonny Gomes. Jose Iglesias had an epic 7-pitch at bat that resulted in a walk to set up the Ellsbury (pictured) dramatics.

The Red Sox had trouble figuring out Corey Kluber and Felix Doubront was inconsistent as Boston fell behind the Indians 4-1 after 6.

Doubront (pictured) gave up a pair of runs in the first inning. He was charged with 4 runs on 5 hits including a pair of home runs over his six innings of work. He allowed two walks while striking out eight.

Kluber held the Red Sox to just three hits in 6.2 innings. He walked one and struck out ten.

The 9th inning double by Ellsbury was his second hit of the game. Stephen Drew had three hits on the afternoon. Craig Breslow was the winner in relief.
