Nick Swisher's solo home run in the top of the 11th inning proved to be the difference as Cleveland beat the Red Sox 3-2 on Father's Day at Fenway Park.

Cleveland and Boston traded first-inning runs with the Indians getting a Michael Brantley solo home run and the Red Sox responding with an RBI single by David Ortiz.

Dustin Pedroia drove in the second Boston run with an RBI ground out in the bottom of the 5th; Cleveland tied the game with a sacrifice fly by Yan Gomes in the top of the 7th.
