Indians Rally Past Red Sox

BOSTON (AP) - Jason Kipnis had three hits and the Cleveland Indians rallied with two runs in the seventh inning on Saturday to beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 and snap a four-game losing streak.
Asdrubal Cabrera and Michael Brantley each had a pair of hits for Cleveland, which had lost eight of its past nine games at Fenway Park. John Axford (2-3) earned the win with one scoreless inning in relief of T.J. House.

Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his seventh save.

Craig Breslow (2-2) took the loss, allowing two unearned runs and two hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning.

The Red Sox led 2-1 when Breslow relieved Jake Peavy to start the seventh. Cabrera hit a grounder behind second base that shortstop Jonathan Herrera grabbed with a diving stop, but his throw to first short-hopped Mike Napoli and popped off the heel of his glove.
