Cleveland jumped ahead 2-1 on Duncan's two-run double in the fourth, after Matt LaPorta singled and moved to third on Jordan Brown's first career hit - a fan-intereference double down the right-field line.

The Indians made it 3-1 in the fifth when Trevor Crowe scored on Choo's double-play grounder. They chased Lackey with three more runs in the sixth, when he walked in a run before Choo lined reliever Dustin Richardson's first pitch to right for a two-run single.

Beltre's sacrifice fly made it 1-0 in the first. The Red Sox might have scored more, but Choo made a running, leaping grab with runners on first and third. Carmona walked the next hitter before fanning Bill Hall and Eric Patterson.

Carmona also got out of a first-and-third, no-out jam in the fifth by striking out Patterson and getting Marco Scutaro to hit into a double play.

Boston knuckleballer Tim Wakefield pitched two innings of relief on his 44th birthday and became just the second Red Sox player ever to play at that age. Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski is the other.
