Vazquez homer does in Cleveland

Boston Red Sox - PlayerWatch

Trevor Bauer (9-8, 5.25 ERA) will toe the rubber for the Tribe here, and he has won his last two starts, allowing four runs and 13 hits in a combined 13 innings.

That's when Cleveland got to Sale again - as Edwin Encarnacion took advantage of Fenway's short porch for a two-run homer.

Red Sox fans rendered their verdict with their voices and hands Tuesday night in the case of Dennis Eckersley vs. David Price et al. Trevor Bauer gets the starting assignment when the Cleveland Indians face the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday. Jackson sprinted toward the Boston bullpen in right center, timed his jump perfectly and snagged the would-be homer by Ramirez, grabbing the bullpen wall and tumbling over - all while holding on to the baseball.

This was Austin Jackson's 5th HR robbery of his career, tied for 11th most in Major League Baseball since his debut in 2010. He hasn't allowed a run in his last three games.

Nope. Boston Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez belted a 3-run home run to help propel the Red Sox back into first place with a 12-10 win. As insane, as thrilling, as attractive a ball game as any fan, and even I suspect, non-fan, could ask for.

'He looked like Willie Mays making that catch, ' George Butler wrote, referencing the Hall of Fame outfielder who is widely considered one of the best fielders the game has ever seen.

Kyle Busch not only victor in Overton's 400 at Pocono
Denny Hamlin leads all active drivers with four wins here with Jimmie Johnson(3) and Kurt Busch(3) right in his rearview mirror. She was in tears over the final laps and celebrated in victory lane a win that her husband dedicated to his late grandmother.

Said Kimbrel: "Right now is the time to roll".

Benintendi is hitting.167 with a.467 OPS in his last 22 games, but will be back in the lineup tonight.

Now, as a member of the Cleveland Indians, he's added an even better highlight to his repertoire.

I hadn't thought this team was in need of leadership, as they seem to really care about each other, almost tripping over themselves to show how they have each other's backs.

Unfortunately, the Indians lost this one in the bottom of the 9th when Christian Vazquez hit a three-run walk-off homer. The Red Sox jumped a half-game ahead of the Yankees atop the American League East after a NY loss. New acquisition Joe Smith pitched two scoreless in his return to Cleveland. Pedroia missed the last three games before the Red Sox made the roster move Tuesday.

Indians: 2B Jason Kipnis (hamstring) and OF Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) are both working back from injuries so the club concentrated on bullpen help.
