This game was every fans dream, you have two great teams battling it out going back fourth throughout the entirety of the game. This was one of those games that just had you glued to the TV screen because you were afraid if you blinked you were going to miss something big. From the get go tonight both these teams were locked in offensively, what can you expect from two power house AL teams, the American League is all about offensive fire power, there's a reason no pitcher in the AL had under a 3 ERA. Red Sox got the scoring started early tonight as they came up in the top of the first getting some base runners on, Hanley Ramirez hit a laser into the left-center field gap, and Pedroia would score. Brock Holt also tried scoring on this play, he was originally called safe, but after review it was clear that he was out, and the Indians escaped only allowing one run. Chisenhall would tie the game up in the second for the Indians with an RBI single. Then, the home run party began. Andrew Benintendi, the young Red Sox outfielder who has come on strong down the stretch this year, hit the first home run of the game in the top of the 3rd inning making the score 2-1. The Indians decided to unleash their guns after that, Roberto Perez got it started with a solo shot of his own, tying the game at 2-2. Then, after the next batter grounded out, Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor went back to back to take a 4-2 lead. Sandy Leon cut that lead to one after he hit a solo homer in the fifth inning, that would ultimately lead to Trevor Bauer getting pulled from the game, and on came Andrew Miller to save the day. Miller did just that getting out of a jam, along with pitching two innings of scoreless baseball tonight. Kipnis would get that insurance right back in the bottom of the inning with an RBI single, that would ultimately lead to Rick Porcello's exit, who proved tonight that he's not Cy Young worthy despite his stat line. The Red Sox bullpen did a good job of keeping the Indians quiet after that allowing no runs for the rest of the game. Red Sox would pull within one again as Brock Holt hit the 6th solo home run of the night, thankfully for both these ball clubs no one was on base for these home runs, or else this game could've gotten outta hand for either team. That's why getting base runners on is so important folks, sure home runs are great, but if no one's on base for them, they're really not all that effective. The score was 5-4 when the Cleveland Indians closer Cody Allen took the mound to secure the 5 out save, and the game one victory for the Indians. He did just that, he struck out 4 of the 5 batters he faced, and the Indians won game one 5-4 in a great start to what should be an amazing series. Indians need a big start from Kluber tomorrow though because their bullpen is fried after tonight.
