G125: Red Sox 9, Cleveland 1

Red Sox   - 110 010 330 - 9 12  0
Cleveland - 100 000 000 - 1  1  0
Doug Fister (9-1-1-2-6, 114) allowed a home run to the first game he faced, but that was the only hit he gave up all night. It was the first one-hitter of his career.

Fister is the third pitcher in the modern era (since 1900) to pitch a one-hitter with the only hit being a leadoff homer (Robin Roberts on May 13, 1954 and Jack McDowell on July 14, 1991 (only 83 pitches!)).

Eduardo Nunez doubled and homered and drove in five runs. Jackie Bradley also homered, but left with an injured left thumb.

Elias: "Nunez homered for the fifth time in 21 games since joining the Red Sox ... after he hit only four home runs in 302 at-bats for the Giants earlier this season. No other player in major-league history has homered five times in his first 25 games for a team after playing for another major-league team earlier that season, getting at least 300 at-bats, and producing fewer than five home runs."

AL East: The Yankees beat the Tigers 13-4. ... Aaron Judge did not strike out tonight. His streak ends at 37 games (July 8-August 21), tying Bill Stoneman's all-time mark (from 1971-72). Judge holds the single-season record.
