Boston Red Sox
An error in the ninth inning cost the Red Sox the game on Monday.
Brock Holt, who started in place of Mitch Moreland and hadn’t played first base in two years, threw the ball away trying to catch Brandon Guyer at third on a sacrifice bunt.
Holt had trouble getting the ball out of his mitt and by the time he did, wouldn’t have had Guyer with a good throw. The throw went wide of Devers at third and Guyer trotted home with the game-winning run, 5-4 the final.
John Farrell may regret using Craig Kimbrell to close out the ninth in a four-run game at Fenway on Sunday.
Matt Barnes, Heath Hembree and Brandon Workman all played a part in giving up a run in the eighth and a run in the ninth and now Doug Fister starts in game two.
Tuesday’s pitching matchup is the most lopsided in the series and it’s tipped the Indians’ way.
Fister will face Carlos Carrasco, cruising right along after a couple of hiccups against both the Sox and Yankees to start the month. He’s rebounded with one run over 13 innings in his last two outings.
Andrew Miller had to leave Monday’s game with a knee injury. He’ll be evaluated further on Tuesday.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: the Indians should roll right along.
Fister was good in a July 31 start against Cleveland and not so good a week ago against the Indians again. A third start against that lineup in a little over three weeks is far from ideal.
