(SportsNetwork.com) - After snapping a four-game losing streak on Saturday, the Cleveland Indians will attempt to finish off their four-game series versus the Red Sox at Fenway Park on a high note Sunday afternoon.
The Indians managed to end their slide with a 3-2 victory on Saturday, coming from behind in the seventh inning when Asdrubal Cabrera scored on an error and Carlos Santana plated the game-winning run with a bases-loaded walk.
"We're going to have to win some games like that," Indians manager Terry Francona said.
After T.J. House pitched a solid 5 1/3 innings, allowing seven hits and two earned runs, John Axford (2-3) earned the victory in relief.
Cody Allen struck out two in a perfect ninth inning for his seventh save.
The 2-3-4 spots in Cleveland's lineup -- Cabrera, Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis -- combined for seven of the team's 10 hits, although the squad stranded 13 runners and went 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position.
Jake Peavy gave up only one run in six strong innings but his lead was blown in the seventh when Craig Breslow (2-2) surrendered two unearned runs.
David Ortiz put the Red Sox on top with an RBI double in the first inning. Jonny Gomes finished 2-for-4 with an RBI.
Corey Kluber will attempt to continue his career year for the Indians on Sunday. He's 6-4 with a 3.35 ERA and has piled up 104 strikeouts (fourth in the AL) paired with only 22 walks in 91 1/3 innings.
Kluber wasn't his sharpest during his most recent outing, lasting just five innings while allowing six hits and six runs (three earned) in a loss to Kansas City on June 10.
The 28-year-old right-hander has not handled the Red Sox well over the course of his career, going winless in four appearances with a 6.23 ERA.
Getting the call for Boston will be Brandon Workman, who is 1-0 with a 2.86 ERA in seven showings (four starts) this season.
Workman was masterful in a June 10 victory over Baltimore, allowing just one hit and one walk while striking out four in 6 2/3 scoreless innings.
"He was outstanding, especially in light of the two different rain delays," Boston manager John Farrell said. "He was able to stay loose with a couple of almost simulated innings in the batting cage."
The second-year hurler faced the Indians on June 4, yielding three earned runs over five innings of work in a no-decision.
