Fister fires 1-hitter as Red Sox romp Indians 9-1

Doug Fister gave up a leadoff homer in the first inning to Francisco Lindor and then nothing else, finishing with a career-best one-hitter, and Eduardo Nunez had five RBIs as the Boston Red Sox rolled to a 9-1 win over the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Red Sox 9, Indians 1: Doug Fister threw a complete-game one-hitter in his best start as a member of the Red Sox. Fister gave up a leadoff homer, then didn't allow a hit to the next 28 batters. It was his eighth career complete game and the first in which he allowed one hit. Eduardo Nunez, another midseason pick-up, hit his fifth homer in 100 plate appearances with the Red Sox after going deep four times in 318 plate appearances with the Giants.

Tough day on the injury front, as two of the top 30 starting pitchers of the past month, Danny Salazar (No. 29 on the Player Rater) and Alex Wood (No. 25), the No. 16 overall player during that same time frame, Joey Gallo, and the No. 30 player for the season, Cody Bellinger, all landed in the DL. Of those, Salazar's is of greatest concern, as it's his third DL stint in the past 13 months and second for an elbow issue. I can't say I'd plan on him contributing to fantasy teams the rest of the way.

Andrew Miller: "I wasn't doing us any favors" by staying in the game. Said he felt fine until the pitch that walked Mookie Betts. Felt same thing on first pitch to Andrew Benintendi. "I hope it's not something that holds me back," said Miller, who will be reevaluated Tuesday. "Hopefully it's just a blip in the whole scheme of things."
