WATCH: Obstruction call costs Sox in loss to Indians originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Red Sox found a new way to fall apart in the late innings during Sunday’s series finale vs. the Cleveland Indians.

They held a two-run lead in the eighth inning that was erased by an Austin Hedges homer off Austin Davis that tied the score at 5. Things only went downhill from there.

Devers explains why he stared down Indians starter

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.
