Red Sox Vs. Indians: Cleveland Falls 3-2 As Boston's Clay Buchholz Dominates

The Indians modest two-game winning streak was snapped on Friday night, as Cleveland fell 3-2 to the visiting Boston Red Sox.

Chris Seddon pitched well for Cleveland, allowing just two earned runs in six innings of work, but he was outdone by Boston starter Clay Buchholz, who threw a complete game two-hitter for his 10th win of the season.

Asdrubal Cabrera had the only two hits for the Indians, including a home run in the first inning off Buchholz. It was the shortstop's 13th homer on the year, and 49th run batted in.

The two team's will square off again on Saturday, with first pitch schedule for 6:05pm EST from Progressive Field. Zach McAllister will be on the mound for Cleveland, opposed by Franklin Morales of the Red Sox.
