Lester gets easy win, Sox rout Indians 14-1

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Jon Lester struck out 12 over six innings for his first win in six weeks and the Boston Red Sox salvaged a four-game split by routing the Cleveland Indians 14-1 Sunday.

Adrian Gonzalez hit a two-run homer and two-run double. Carl Crawford had three RBIs and three of Boston's seven doubles.

The Red Sox built a 6-1 lead against Corey Kluber (0-1) and scored their most runs since hammering Miami 15-5 in an interleague game June 20.

Lester (6-10) was on cruise control with the big lead after struggling to an 0-5 record and 7.49 ERA in seven starts since beating Toronto on June 27. He gave up three hits and one run to move to 5-1 lifetime against Cleveland.
