BOSTON -- Nick Swisher finally has something to savour in a tough season -- a game-winning homer. He had spent 16 days on the disabled list before being activated Thursday. He was batting just .203 when he came to bat in the 11th inning on Sunday. Then he led off the inning with his fourth homer of the season, giving the Cleveland Indians their second straight 3-2 comeback win over the Boston Red Sox. "This years been kind of crazy for me, personally, just to come up with a hit like that to help this team win a ballgame," Swisher said. "I was so stoked, man. I wanted to smile all the way around the bases." Cleveland manager Terry Francona was pretty excited by the good view he had from the third base dugout of the homer just inside the right field foul pole. "At that point its not relief," he said, "its elation." The Red Sox wasted an excellent opportunity to win the game in the ninth when they loaded the bases with three walks by John Axford. Then Scott Atchison came in and got Brock Holt to end the threat with a groundout to second. "He throws strikes," Francona said. "Thats why hes out there." The Red Sox left eight runners on base. "We had opportunities," Boston manager John Farrell said. "We walked the bases loaded in the ninth and (were) a base hit away, or a swing away from ending it right there. Its been elusive." Cody Allen (3-1) ended the game with two perfect innings, striking out three. Junichi Tazawa (1-1) took the loss one day after walking in the winning run. Swisher had been 1 for 8 in two of the first three games of the series after recovering from a hyperextended right knee and was 0 for 4 Sunday before his homer. "He obviously has that (home run) capability, but were challenging him given his four previous at-bats on the day and maybe some of the inconsistencies hes had during the season," Farrell said, "and got beat on it." The win was the Indians second straight after four consecutive losses. Michael Brantley gave Cleveland a 1-0 lead in the first with his 11th homer. But in the next five innings, Brandon Workman allowed just three hits, a walk and a hit batsman. Boston tied the game in the first on a single by leadoff hitter Holt, a wild pitch and an RBI single by David Ortiz. The Red Sox took a 2-1 lead in the fifth against Corey Kluber after a walk to Jackie Bradley Jr. and a single by Holt put runners at first and third with one out. Dustin Pedroia then grounded to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who threw to second baseman Jason Kipnis for the forceout. But Pedroia hustled to beat the throw to first, avoiding a double play and allowing Bradley to score. Just as they did in Saturday nights loss, the Red Sox took a 2-1 lead into the seventh and lost it. David Murphy walked and reached third on a single by Carlos Santana with no outs. Workman was replaced by Burke Badenhop, who allowed a tying sacrifice fly by Yan Gomes. "All we can do is keep going out there and keep getting guys on base and working," Bostons A.J. Pierzynski said. "Guys hit some balls hard. They made some good plays. Theres nothing you can do." Cleveland threatened in the 10th when Craig Breslow issued two-out walks to Brantley and Kipnis, but Lonnie Chisenhall grounded into a forceout.
