Eduardo Rodriguez was in line to earn his first win since May on Monday night, but the Boston Red Sox bullpen was unable to seal the deal in a 5-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.

The All-Star lefty is 4-3 with a 1.65 ERA in 48 appearances. Clevinger was pitching on an odd schedule after last Wednesday's rainout and did not not look sharp, yielding four walks and four hits - including two home runs.

The Indians also reported a second injury on Monday.

Plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt was struck on the mask by a warmup pitch in the sixth inning from Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly.

Dodgers outfielder Curtis Granderson became both the first player in Major League Baseball history to hit two grand slams in a four-game span for different teams, and the first player in history to hit a grand slam both batting leadoff and batting cleanup in the same season when he he cleared the bases in the seventh inning of a 6-5 win in 12 innings against the Pirates.

Miller issued a walk to Mookie Betts to lead off the frame before throwing one pitch (a ball) to Andrew Benintendi. Teammates ran onto the field and doused Perez with water and white powder. The Indians did their damage on seven hits and a trio of BB with Roberto Perez clubbing a three run bomb while Brandon Guyer went 2-3 and scored twice. Tomlin has been on the disabled list since July 31 with a strained left hamstring. Cleveland are 8-2 in their last 10 overall and Cleveland are 10-3 in their last 13 home games while the under is 9-3-1 in Cleveland last 13 overall. On the trip, Bruce hit.375, with five doubles, three home runs and 12 RBIs in 40 at bats. He was replaced by INF/OF Brock Holt.
