Rain Delay Doesn’t Stop Sox in 8-1 Win Over Cleveland

After getting blown out on Thursday night 12-3 on Terry Francona’s return to Fenway as Indians manager, the Red Sox had a tougher test on Friday night with former Red Sox pitcher Justin Masterson on the mound for the Cleveland Indians. But, the Sox came out strong winning 8-1 with John Lackey having a great night on the hill. Lackey pitched seven innings giving up only two hits, one run and striking out eight batters.

The Red Sox bats notched 9 hits including 2 hits from Dustin Pedroia and a three run home run for Mike Carp. Hearing the terrible news of Will Middlebrooks and Shane Victorino heading to the 15 day DL, the Red Sox are hoping the bats can sustain nights like Friday night.

Red Sox ace Jon Lester is on the mound on Saturday looking for his 7th win of the season.
