Red Sox Win at Cleveland, 9-6
With second baseman Kevin Newman leading the charge, the Boston Red Sox defeated the Cleveland Indians, 9-6, at Progressive Field. Newman, who is tied for 9th in the AL in triples with 4, went 2-3 with a home run, while scoring 3 runs. Boston is now riding a 4-game win streak.

The result might have been different, had it not been for Javier Baez, the Boston shortstop. Baez had a run-scoring walk in the top of the seventh inning to put the Red Sox ahead, 4-3. For the game, Baez had 1 double and 1 single in 4 at-bats.

"It feels good to get this one," Newman told the Boston Times.
