Sox Soar in Game Five

This article is more than 12 years old.

The AL Championship series is coming back to Boston. The Red Sox got a 7-1 win over the Indians in Cleveland to stay alive for Game 6 tomorrow night.

Josh Beckett dominated the Indians for the second time in the 3-2 series. Manny Ramirez drove in the go-ahead run with a 390-foot single.

Kevin Youkilis set the tone with a first-inning homer off Cleveland ace C.C. Sabathia, who gave up four runs and 10 hits in six-plus innings. Boston added three runs in the eighth.

Beckett, who beat Cleveland in the opener, allowed only a run in the first. He gave up five total hits in eight innings. He struck out 11, walked one and was around the plate with almost every one of his 109 pitches.

Curt Schilling, who has 9-3 record in 17 career postseason starts, goes against Fausto Carmona tomorrow night.
