Nolan Jones and Austin Hedges also homered, and Steven Kwan had three hits to help Guardians snap a three-game losing streak. Bryan Shaw made his first start after a record 732 relief appearances, and Kirk McCarty (1-2) earned his first career victory, pitching four scoreless innings and striking out four.

The Guardians scored solo runs in the first two innings before Jones hit a three-run homer to make it 5-0 in the third. Boston scored two in the bottom half to chase Shaw, and had the bases loaded with one out.

But Nick Sandlin got Kevin Plawecki on a shallow popup, and Jones, in right field, threw out Bogaerts trying to tag from third to end the inning. The Guardians lead the majors with 27 outfield assists.
