Red Sox Vs. Indians Live Blog: Inning By Inning Updates For Game 3

The Sox and Indians are set to go in game three of their four-game series.

Josh Tomlin will not be taking the mound tonight for the Indians as planned, being replaced by Zach McAllister after making the trip to the disabled list with a sore wrist.

We'll keep you up-to-date with all of the action as it goes down in Fenway park.

Indians 1, Red Sox 4, Final -- A tidy two hour, forty minute game ends with Alfredo Aceves recording a 1-2-3 ninth, striking out Carlos Santana to end the night.

Indians 1, Red Sox 4, End 8th -- But for Ross' homer, the Sox have gone completely quiet since the beginning. Then again, that's why you get the lead early.

Indians 1, Red Sox 4, Mid 8th -- Vicente Padilla replaces Andrew Miller and sees similar success, sitting down the Indians in order, leaving the Sox just three outs away from a second straight win.

Indians 1, Red Sox 4, End 7th -- For all that Zach McAllister hasn't had a tremendous night, he has managed to keep the Indians alive when it looked like he might be due for a relatively early departure. A 1-2-3 seventh leaves him with 112 pitches, however, so one has to imagine that's it for him.

Indians 1, Red Sox 4, Mid 7th -- Andrew Miller retires the side in order. The real good news is simply the fact that he's in, however. Nice to see Bobby not trying to stretch his starter too far...for once.

Indians 1, Red Sox 4, End 6th -- The Red Sox waste no time at all getting their run back from the Indians, as Cody Ross clears everything in left field for a solo home run. That's the sort of thing that Cody brings to the Sox. Not consistently, but when he gets into one, he really gets into it.

Indians 1, Red Sox 3, Mid 6th -- Felix Doubront has his greatest trouble of the night, surrendering a run in the sixth after a leadoff double. The inning was sufficiently long to spike his pitch count over 100, so he is likely done after six innings of one-run ball. A solid outing, but his troubles are the same as ever.

Indians 0, Red Sox 3, End 5th -- Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, and Adrian Gonzalez go down in order, as the Sox' offense finally goes quiet.

Indians 0, Red Sox 3, Mid 5th -- Another walk keeps Doubront away from a 1-2-3 inning, but through five he's rolling through this Indian's lineup. 84 pitches is a bit high for a 1-hitter, so pitch count remains an issue for Felix Doubront, but one heck of a performance so far.

Indians 0, Red Sox 3, End 4th -- The Sox build the lead to three runs with a quick fourth-inning rally. Daniel Nava continues to reach pace at a torrid pace by flipping a single into left field. Cody Ross ends up surrendering the first out of the inning on an unlucky line drive to third base, but Jarrod Satlamacchia revives the rally by doubling to right field. Another lineout to left field lets Daniel Nava score on a close play at home, sliding through Lou Marson's legs to touch home as the ball reaches the plate before Jason Kipnis makes a good ranging play to prevent a single up the middle and record the third out.

The Sox could have easily sent all six men to the basepaths, but they'll have to settle for three and a run after some bad luck and good defense.

Indians 0, Red Sox 2, Mid 4th -- After a line drive out to start the inning, Doubront gets back to weak contact and strikeouts, getting a ground ball from Asdrubal Cabrera, and sitting down Carlos Santana swinging at strike three.

Indians 0, Red Sox 2, End 3rd -- The Red Sox grab a 2-0 lead behind the two men who have been getting it done all year long in Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz. Mike Aviles leads the inning off by dropping a blooper into right-center field, and then scores when Dustin Pedroia hits a wall ball double that nearly leaves the park. One at bat later, David Ortiz makes it a moot point by driving Pedroia in with a double of his own.

Indians 0, Red Sox 0, Mid 3rd -- Felix Doubront is through his third scoreless inning in Fenway, with both his third strikeout and first walk of the game. A line drive off the bat of Michael Brantley threatened to keep the inning going, but Mike Aviles reacted quickly and ranged to his left to pick the ball off his shoetops for the out.

Indians 0, Red Sox 0, End 2nd -- Another baserunner stranded at first for the Sox, as Daniel Nava puts a single on a line to left before Cody Ross flies out and Jarrod Saltalamacchia strike out to end an unproductive inning.

Indians 0, Red Sox 0, Mid 2nd -- The Indians have their first hit of the game, but waste the baserunner in quite a hurry, as Travis Hafner runs into the out at second, trying to turn a single into a double. A bit of strong contact for the Indians in the second--hopefully not a sign of things to come.

Indians 0, Red Sox 0, End 1st -- The Red Sox grab the first baserunner of the game as Dustin Pedroia drops a bloop single to center field, but Zach McAllister manages to work through a difficult Adrian Gonzalez at bat to record the third out and a scoreless first.

Indians 0, Red Sox 0, Mid 1st -- Felix Doubront is off to a strong start Saturday night, taking advantage of a wide strike zone to sit down both Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis looking at strike three as part of a 1-2-3 first.
