Indians Vs. Red Sox: Cleveland Tries To Bounce Back As Series With Boston Continues

The Cleveland Indians (52-61) hope to heat up their offense on Saturday evening when they host the Boston Red Sox (56-58) in the third game of a four-game weekend series at Progressive Field.

The Indians were stymied by Red Sox' starter Clay Buchholz on Friday night as the right-handers threw a complete game two-hitter as Boston evened the series with a 3-2 win which snapped a three-game losing streak for the Sox.

Cleveland will turn to right-hander Zach McAllister (4-4, 3.60 ERA) to try to avoid streaking in the wrong direction. McAllister has suffered from a lack of run support of late and has not won a game since beating Tampa Bay on July 16h.

The Red Sox will counter with Franklin Morales (3-2, 3.14 ERA) on the mound to build on the gem from Buchholz. Morales is coming off of a strong outing when he gave up on run and three hits in six innings to earn a win over Minnesota.

The game is scheduled to start at 6:05 p.m. ET and will be televised on SportsTime Ohio.
