Dramatic win for Red Sox

Cleveland tied it on Francisco Lindor's leadoff home run in the top of the ninth and took a 10-9 lead on Craig Kimbrel's bases-loaded wild pitch with Jackson at the plate. The Red Sox led 9-7 when new relief pitcher Addison Reed allowed a solo home run in the eighth inning. The Indians have the second best record in the AL, and are followed closely by the Red Sox in fourth, after the Yankees took over second spot two nights ago.

Ramirez belted an 83mph slider from Indians reliever Dan Otero to deep right-centre field but Jackson leapt at the wall and caught the ball as his momentum carried him head-first over the outfield wall and into the Red Sox bullpen.

Boston Red Sox outfielder/second baseman Brock Holt is not in Wednesday's lineup versus the Cleveland Indians.

RAYS 6, ASTROS 4 Evan Longoria became the second Tampa Bay player to hit for the cycle and drove in three runs to lead the visiting Rays over Houston.

Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez (7) and his teammates react after he hit a walk-off home run during the ninth inning of Tuesday night's game against the Indians at Fenway Park.

It was a nice deadline acquisition but the team still ahead of the Red Sox by half a game for first place in the division made a much louder noise before the deadline passed. The Red Sox picked up a game on the Yankees with Tuesday's victory over the visiting Cleveland Indians which gave the team wins in four of six.

With two runners on and two runners out, it was time for the Vazquez to put this game to bed. "It just seemed like every ball just found the grass or got by somebody".

Porcello, the soon-to-be AL Cy Young Award victor, coughed up five runs on six hits - including three home runs - in 4 1/3 innings.

Speaking to MLB.com's Brian McTaggart, Astros ace Dallas Keuchel said of his team's action at the deadline, "I'm not going to lie, disappointment is a little bit of an understatement".

The Red Sox should be able to keep putting runs up on the board against Bauer, who is 3-5 in nine road starts with a 6.69 ERA. "When you jump up 5-0 on Sale, that's doing something", Francona said.

Moreland got three runs back for Boston with his three-run blast, approximately 402 feet, with one out in the second. "We haven't had a game like this for a long time", Farrell said.

The Red Sox have the home-field advantage tonight and they will be throwing their struggling right-hander to the mound in Doug Fister.

You might think that Cleveland might have the edge in the starting pitching matchup, but Rick Porcello (4-14, 4.55 ERA) has been solid lately despite losing each of his last four starts. New acquisition Joe Smith pitched two scoreless in his return to Cleveland.
