Benintendi's 2B ends Boston's scoreless streak

October 11th, 2016

BOSTON -- The Red Sox snapped their 14-inning scoreless streak in the bottom of the fifth inning of their 4-3 loss in Game 3 of the American League Division Series, as briefly trimmed the Indians' lead to 2-1 with a RBI double off the Green Monster. The loss sent Cleveland to a 3-0 series sweep and on to the ALCS against the Blue Jays.

Benintendi's one-out drive off chased home all the way from first base, with Bogaerts diving past catcher after a daring send by Boston third-base coach Brian Butterfield.

The run was Boston's first since hit a solo home run in the eighth inning of Game 1 at Progressive Field. Boston left the tying run at second base as struck out and grounded out.

The one-run deficit was short-lived, however, as Cleveland's , a former Red Sox outfielder, hammered a two-run homer in the next frame to put the Indians up 4-1.
