Missed Catch Lets Cleveland Sneak Winning Run In Over Red Sox

Last updated on Wednesday, April 29, 2009

(CLEVELAND, OH) - Boston reliever Javier Lopez could not handle a toss from first baseman Kevin Youkilis, allowing the winning run to score as the Cleveland Indians defeated the Red Sox 9-8.

Ben Francisco hit a three-run home run and Mark DeRosa added a solo shot as the Indians ended Boston's eleven-game winning streak. DeRosa led off the bottom of the ninth with a bloop single off Lopez and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Francisco.

After Lopez got Grady Sizemore to strike out, Asdrubal Cabrera hit a ground ball to Youkilis.

Lopez dropped the flip from Youkilis, allowing DeRosa to score the game-winner from second base.
