The Indians jumped all over Josh Beckett, chasing him in the third inning after plating seven. Derek Lowe earned his fifth win, which must be killing the faithful in Bawston. Kipnis hit his sixth home run, and Jack Hannahan hit one of his own. Pestano made things interesting by loading the bases, but got out of the eighth without surrendering a run.
