Drew Pomeranz and the Boston bullpen outdueled Corey Kluber and the Cleveland bullpen as the Red Sox won 6-1 last night. The win gets the Sox to a season-high 20 games over .500.
Pomeranz and Kluber were locked up in a scoreless tie until Mitch Moreland's 5th inning home run.
And that was it until the 8th when Mookie Betts drove in an insurance run. Kluber left the game with a dozen strikeouts.
Then the Sox tacked on more runs in the 9th, the big hit an Eduardo Nunez two-run homer.
Pomeranz and three Sox relievers limited Cleveland to just three hits.
Pomeranz gets his 13the win (13-4) and lowered his ERA to 3.14.
Chris Sale pitches the final game of the series tonight.
