Chris Sale gives up seven runs...the new eighth inning man Addison Reed gives up a home run to the first batter he faces...and Craig Kimbrel blows a save, but gets the win.

It was that kind of night at Fenway Park as the Red Sox came from behind to beat the Indians 12-10 on a three-run, walk-off home run by Christian Vazquez.

The win, combined with a Yankees loss, moved the Red Sox back into first place in the American League East.

Sale gave up seven runs on eight hits and a walk over five innings, the most runs he's allowed all year. He struck out five and gave up a pair of home runs.

Trailing 5-0, Boston tied the game with five run in the bottom of the second inning with three coming on a Mitch Moreland home run and an RBI single by Brock Holt and a run-scoring double by Eduardo Nunez (pictured).

After Cleveland took a 7-5 lead in the fifth, Boston rallied for four in the bottom of the sixth on a single by Betts and a bases-clearing double by Nunez.

Kimbrel gave up a game-tying home run to Francisco Lindor in the top of the ninth and the winning run scored on a wild pitch.

Vazquez and Nunez each had three hits in the win. Betts, Holt, Rafael Devers and Moreland each had two.
