Xander Bogaerts hit a pair of home runs including the 100th of his career while the Red Sox bullpen delivered 6.1 scoreless innings, helping carry the Red Sox to a 5-1 victory and a series win against the Indians. Rafael Devers (2-for-4) and Bogaerts (3-for-4, 4 RBIs) combined for back-to-back homers in the third inning to give the Sox an initial 2-0 cushion. Bogaerts struck again for Boston in the seventh though, punishing the Indians for intentionally walking Devers to give the Sox a 5-1 lead with a blast to left field.
