In what has been a rare phenomenon of late, the Red Sox had multiple facets of the game clicking last night.

Jon Lester was dominant on the mound and the offense put together a well-rounded effort as the Sox dropped the Cleveland Indians, 5-2, in the opener of a four-game series at Fenway Park.

A sellout crowd of 37,750 watched Lester throw 72⁄3 stellar innings to even his record at 7-7. Lester gave up two runs, one earned, on eight hits with four strikeouts and a walk.

The bats delivered with 12 hits and produced timely production from throughout the order. Koji Uehara closed out the ninth to pick up his 14th save of the season.

The Red Sox returned home following a 2-7 road swing that began with a series sweep by the Indians in Cleveland. The Sox offense was downgraded from weak to frail in Baltimore, where they were shut out twice and outscored 10-1 in a three-game set.

Manager John Farrell tweaked the batting order by giving third baseman Xander Bogaerts the night off. But Farrell insisted before the game there would not be radical alterations to the Red Sox approach.

“We’ve had this conversation with individual players and with the staff and that we can’t abandon the strengths that this team and these individual players have shown in the past,” said Farrell.

“That is put up relentless at-bats, get on base and overall I think we do a good job getting on base. I firmly believe this will turn and there is confidence in this group of players to put together a streak of wins that gets us back in the mix.”
