WATCH: Obstruction call costs Sox in loss to Indians originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Oscar Mercado kept the Indians rally going with a single, then landed the knockout blow on a wild sequence of events following a double by Cleveland’s Yu Chang. As Mercado hustled from second to third base, he shoved Red Sox second baseman out of his way and made it all the way to the plate.
The throw home beat Mercado, but it didn’t matter. Munoz was called for interference, allowing Mercado to score the go-ahead run for the Indians.
Boston went on to fall to Cleveland, 7-5.
While the Red Sox took two out of three in the series, losing in such a brutal fashion undoubtedly puts a damper on things. They’ll look to get back on track when they begin a pivotal series vs. the first-place Tampa Bay Rays on Monday.
