Clay being Clay.

The Indians jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning off Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, three of them on Carlos Santana's first home run of the season. Buch lasted just four innings, charged with five runs on six hits and three walks as Cleveland beat the Red Sox 7-6 at Progressive Field on Wednesday night.

Brock Holt (pictured) put Boston on the scoreboard with a two-run blast in the top of the second inning. David Ortiz and Hanley Ramirez went back-to-back in the top of the sixth to give the Red Sox a brief 6-5 lead.

The Indians tied the game with a run in the bottom of the sixth and took a 7-6 lead in the seventh on a solo blast to left by Mike Napoli.
