The Indians played and won ugly Saturday at Fenway Park, but there were no complaints over style points in the visitor's clubhouse.

Not only did the Indians strand 13 runners, they went 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position. Still, they managed to beat Boston, 3-2, and end a four-game losing streak on a lovely June afternoon.

"There are times when we are going to have to win games like this," said manager Terry Francona.

Saturday was one of those days. After a going 3-1 against Texas to start this 10-game trip, the Indians have lost four straight – two to Kansas City and the first two to Boston in this four-game series. They have a chance to go home at 5-5 with a victory on Sunday.

The Indians loaded the bases three times Saturday and managed to score two runs. Their two-run, game-winning rally came in the seventh and consisted of Asdrubal Cabrera scoring the tying run on an error by catcher A.J. Pierzynski and Carlos Santana forcing home the winning run with a bases-loaded walk.

The 1927 Yankees can rest easy. The 2014 Indians are still using training wheels when they come to the batter's box.

"This is a good win," said Jason Kipnis, who had three of the Indians' 10 hits. "Usually when we strand a lot of runners and don't come up with the big hit, we're usually on the downside of things.
