BOSTON — A.J. Pierzynski, Mike Napoli and Dustin Pedroia hit two-run doubles and the Boston Red Sox scored their season-high in runs in a 10-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.


After managing just one run in a three-game series at Baltimore, Boston won its second straight over Cleveland, which has lost four in a row.
