BOSTON (AP) — Cleveland pitcher Shane Bieber was sure to thank fellow rookie Greg Allen for making his debut at Fenway Park a successful one.The rare times Bieber made a mistake http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-kent-hrbek-jersey , Allen was there to cover — no matter the distance — with a pair of catches in deep center field that helped the Indians beat the Boston Red Sox 6-3 Tuesday night.“He does it night after night. It’s incredible,” Bieber said of Allen. “You can’t really count him out. He’s so fast and gets such good jumps and has such a good feel for playing the outfield, he’s always got a chance.”Allen, who hit a go-ahead home run in the seventh inning to beat Boston on Monday, came back to double, single and drive in a run.But he made the biggest impact in this matchup of AL division leaders with his glove.First, Allen raced back and slammed into the padded wall to take away an extra-base hit from Xander Bogaerts leading off the fifth inning.Then, with the Red Sox trying to rally in the seventh, Allen again came through.The Red Sox had already scored once to make it 5-1 and had two on with no outs when Mitch Moreland hit a long drive toward the dirt triangle way bakc in center.Allen slid to a stop as he caught the ball over his shoulder — it was a sacrifice fly and finished Bieber, but thwarted Boston’s momentum.“That dude’s like a ballhog out there. He wants everything Kennys Vargas Jersey ,” said catcher Yan Gomes, whose solo homer in the eighth also helped simmer down the Boston fans.Bieber (7-2) took a shutout in the seventh. He went 6 1-3 innings, allowing three runs on five hits. He struck out five and didn’t walk a batter.Melky Cabrera homered for the second straight game and Yan Gomes also connected for Cleveland, which improved to 15-4 in August.Boston, with the best record in the majors, has lost three in a row for just the second time this season.“We’re not swinging the bat well right now,” manager Alex Cora said.Down 5-0, Boston scored three times in the seventh. Brad Hand got his 25th save.Gomes singled home Cabrera early, and hit a solo homer in the eighth.Nathan Eovaldi (5-5) had been 2-0 in four starts for the Red Sox since coming over from Tampa Bay in a trade at the deadline, but took his first loss with Boston.CLEVELAND’S ROCKINGThe Indians have won nine of 10 Bert Blyleven Jersey , including the first two of the four-game series at Fenway Park.Manager Terry Francona said it’s great to see young players like Bieber and Allen, who extended his hitting streak to 14, play so well in a big series, but it’s still the regular season.“We just wanted to win tonight. That’s all,” Francona said.FIRST LOSSEovaldi went 5 1-3 innings, allowing four runs on 10 hits and a walk. He struck out two.“They were just able to string hits together,” Eovaldi said. “I need to do a better job of executing my pitches when I’m ahead in the count. I felt like they were just able to work counts and find a way to get the job done.”TRAINER’S ROOMIndians: DH Edwin Encarnacion, out since Aug. 12 with a right wrist contusion, could be activated from the DL Thursday for the last of the four-game series. Francona said Encarnacion is close, but the Indians won’t rush to get him back in the lineup.“He’s doing so good that we just want to do the right thing http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-o_neill-jersey ,” Francona said.Red Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (right ankle ligament) will likely make one more rehabilitation start before returning to the club, Cora said. Rodriguez threw four scoreless innings four Double-A Portland on Monday.UP NEXTIndians: RHP Carlos Carrasco (15-6, 3.33 ERA) pitched seven scoreless innings Friday against Baltimore while winning his 15th start of the season.Red Sox: LHP Brian Johnson (4-3, 4.00) has won three of his last four starts as makes his first career appearance against Cleveland. ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cincinnati Reds right-hander Luis Castillo made life easy for catcher Tucker Barnhart on Saturday night.Castillo tossed 6 2/3 shutout innings and combined with two relievers on a two-hitter to lead the Reds to a 4-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.Barnhart said working with Castillo was easy.“(He has) video game stuff,” Barnhart said. “Tonight was an example of that. He was able to throw all three pitches for strikes. He was able to keep them off balance all night long.”The Reds snapped a three-game losing streak.St. Louis, which won a major league-best 22 games in August, lost for the second time in six games.The Cardinals are 4 1/2 games behind Chicago in the NL Central after the Cubs beat Philadelphia 7-1.Castillo (8-11) gave up two hits and struck out a career-high 11. He gave up a leadoff single to Matt Carpenter in the first before retiring 15 of the next 16 hitters.Castillo has had an up-and-down season and has struggled with consistency.“We feel like he can do this,” Cincinnati interim manager Jim Riggleman. “He’s not 21, he’s 25. It’s time. We just hope he builds on that, has a good September Jacoby Ellsbury Jersey , and takes us into 2019 as a guy that can anchor our staff.”Castillo had given up five earned runs in two of his last three starts.“A good part was I was on the same page with Tucker,” Castillo said. “He was calling the right pitches. I was throwing the right pitches. That was a big part of my success.Castillo was making his 27th start of the season and said this might have been his best performance to date.“I’ve had a couple good ones, but I felt really, really good in this one,” Castillo said. “I faced a really good team that’s trying to get into the playoffs. To be able to perform and do what I did tonight was really good for me.”David Hernandez and Raisel Iglesias completed the two-hitter, which was the Reds fifth shutout of the season.Suarez keyed a three-run outburst against Daniel Poncedeleon (0-1) in the fourth. Joey Votto broke the scoreless tie with a run-scoring double. Scooter Gennett followed with a hit to set the stage for Suarez’s drive off the wall in left. Suarez, who has hit safely in 11 successive games against St. Louis, pushed his RBI total to 98,.Barnhart added a run-scoring single in the seventh.Poncedeleon, in his third major league start http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-don-mattingly-jersey , retired the first 10 batters he faced on 43 pitches. But the next six hitters reached safely ending his night after 3 1-3 innings. Poncedeleon gave up three runs on five hits. He struck out four and walked one.“I think I lost the arm slot on my fastball,” Poncedeleon said. “I was searching out there.”St. Louis has won 20 of its last 26 and has a 29-14 record since manager Mike Shildt took over for Mike Matheny on July 15.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: OF Marcell Ozuna was activated from the 10-day disabled list prior to the contest. Ozuna has been bothered by right shoulder inflammation. He is expected to start on Sunday.RHP Adam Wainwright tossed five shutout innings in a rehab outing with Triple-A Memphis in Nashville on Saturday. He gave up five hits, struck out seven and walked two in a 90-pitch outing. Wainwright has missed 98 games with elbow inflammation.UP NEXTRHP Anthony DeSclafani (7-4, 4.34) will face Luke Weaver (7-11, 4.59) in the final game of the three-game series on Sunday. DeSclafani has gone at least six innings in each of his last five starts with a 3-1 record and a 2.62 ERA over that span. Weaver is 3-0 lifetime against the Reds.
