Tribe rally falls short vs. Red Sox

Posted: Updated:

Cleveland (WOIO) - It took four starts, but Justin Masterson proved he's human. The Indians' ace, who was simply spectacular in his first three starts of 2013, struggled early on Wednesday night, as the Red Sox jumped on him for three in the first, and while the Indians would rally, they'd never complete the comeback, falling to the Sox for the second straight night, 6-3 at Progressive Field.

Nick Swisher and Jason Giambi went back-to-back with home runs in the 6th to spark the rally, and cut the Red Sox lead to 5-3, but that's as close at the Tribe would get.

Masterson went five innings, giving up four runs on 11 hits.
