INDIANAPOLIS (June 16, 2016) – Wilfredo Boscan worked six scoreless innings to set up the Indians for their first series sweep of the season with a 5-1 win over Pawtucket on Thursday at Victory Field.

Josh Bell tallied an RBI in the fifth to extend his RBI streak to five straight games – longest on the team this year.

After three full scoreless frames, the Indians (36-30) plated the game’s first runs in the fourth. The Tribe loaded the bases with no outs ahead of a walk drawn by Ed Easley. A second run scored on a ball put in play by Gift Ngoepe when PawSox second baseman Jose Vicinio couldn’t start an inning-ending double play.

Max Moroff walked to start the fifth, and the Tribe followed him with three straight hits to score three in the inning. Adam Frazier banged a triple off the right field wall which caromed awkwardly for right fielder Henry Ramos and nearly allowed him to score.

Wilfredo Boscan (5-5) finished with six scoreless innings, allowing four hits and striking out one. Henry Owens (4-3) received the loss for the PawSox (33-33).

Dovydas Neverauskas made his Triple-A debut in the seventh, allowing one earned run. Pedro Florimon kept an additional run off the board when he threw out PawSox catcher Dan Butler for the second time in the game – this one at the plate.

Kelvin Marte pitched a perfect ninth to close out the win.

The Tribe next hits the road to take on Charlotte on Friday at 7:05 p.m.
