Nix, Marte homer for Indians in 9-1 win vs. Boston

Associated Press

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Justin Masterson delivers in the fourth inning against the Boston Red Sox.

BOSTON — Justin Masterson doesn’t hold a grudge against the Red Sox for shipping him to Cleveland at the trading deadline last year.

Instead, he holds on to the things he learned during his three years in the Boston organization.

“It keeps you locked in the whole time, because you know that at any time they can make that comeback,” Masterson said Wednesday night after beating his former team for the second time this season, pitching five solid innings to lead the Indians to a 9-1 victory over the Red Sox.

Andy Marte hit a three-run homer in a five-run seventh inning, and Jayson Nix homered off the Fisk Pole to give Cleveland its fourth win in five games. The Indians took advantage of three Boston errors to score seven unearned runs, including all five in the seventh when they turned a 4-1 game into a 9-1 blowout.
