Cleveland Indian and Canyon High graduate Chris Seddon pitches against the Boston Red Sox on Friday in Cleveland.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Canyon High graduate Chris Seddon allowed five hits and two earned runs over six innings in his second start since the Indians purchased the left-hander’s contract from Triple-A Columbus on Aug. 5, but it wasn’t enough to get past Boston on Friday night.

Clay Buchholz pitched a two-hitter, Cody Ross hit a two-run homer, and the Boston Red Sox broke a three-game losing streak by beating the Cleveland Indians 3-2.

Buchholz (10-3) gave up one earned run in his second complete game of the season and fifth of his career. The right-hander improved to 8-2 in 17 starts following a loss the last two years.

Ross broke a 1-1 tie with a 420-foot shot over the wall in center field off Seddon (0-1) in the sixth inning.

Asdrubal Cabrera had both Cleveland hits, including his 13th homer, but the Indians had their two-game winning streak broken and lost for the 12th time in 14 games.

Boston third baseman Will Middlebrooks left in the ninth after being hit in the right wrist with a pitch from Esmil Rogers.
Buchholz hasn’t allowed more than two earned runs in five consecutive starts, the longest streak by a Boston starter since Tim Wakefield did it six times in a row in 2002. Buchholz didn’t get a decision in three of those outings, however.

The right-hander gave up Cabrera’s one-out homer in the first and an unearned run in the sixth. He struck out six, walked none, and moved to 6-1 with a 2.08 ERA in 11 starts since May 27.

The Red Sox tied it at 1 with an unearned run in the fourth after a throwing error by Seddon.

Mike Aviles drew a one-out walk and advanced to third on a wild pickoff throw by Seddon. Dustin Pedroia singled him home.
