CLEVELAND - Justin Masterson beat his former team with his first career shutout as the Cleveland Indians routed the Boston Red Sox 11-0 last night.
Travis Hafner hit his 10th career grand slam - first since May 7, 2007 - in an eight-run eighth inning against Boston's bullpen. Boof Bonser and Joe Nelson combined to throw 60 pitches to 14 batters, walking five and allowing seven hits.
Masterson (2-5) faced the Red Sox for the first time and earned his second consecutive win after a long losing streak.
The right-hander struck out six, walked two, and allowed a pair of harmless one-out singles - to Victor Martinez in the third inning and J.D. Drew in the fifth.
The complete-game shutout was the first by an Indians pitcher against Boston since Jack McDowell on April 15, 1996.
