CLEVELAND (AP) -- Brent Lillibridge homered, drove in two runs and scored on a squeeze bunt to back Zack McAllister's strong pitching as the Cleveland Indians beat the Boston Red Sox 5-2 on Saturday night. Lillibridge, acquired on July 24 from Boston, tied a career high with three hits. He hit his first homer in nearly a year and had an RBI single off Franklin Morales (3-2). McAllister (5-4) allowed three hits, including a two-run double by Adrian Gonzalez, in a career-high eight innings. Chris Perez pitched the ninth for his 31st save in 35 chances for Cleveland, 3-1 since an 11-game losing streak. Boston has lost eight of 11.
