Fausto can’t finish

With a one-run lead in the bottom of the ninth, closer Fausto Carmona struck out the first two batters. So, he had recovered from his blown save a few night earlier, right? Wrong. Carmona walked the bases loaded, two coming from hit batters, and gave up a Mark Loretta double off the Green Monster to end it as the Red Sox won in dramatic fashion again, 6-5.

The Tribe, much like night before, scored early and went up 3-0 in the first. Jeremy Sowers was able to stretch his scoreless streak to 22 innings before he gave up two in the fifth. Three of the Sowers’ five strikeouts in the game were by slugger David Ortiz. After a Manny Ramirez and Wily Mo Pena home run gave the Red Sox the lead in the sixth, Travis Hafner responded with a two-run shot in the eighth to put the Indians on top. What looked to be a rare series victory for the Tribe ended in disaster once again.
