Stanford Solid Against Sox

Jason Stanford looked good, but the Tribe lost to the Boston Red Sox in exhibition action. Here's more on the game...

Jason Stanford helped his bid for claiming a spot in the Indians rotation Wednesday, but Cleveland lost to the Boston Red Sox 3-1 in Fort Myers, Fla.

The left-hander allowed one run and three hits over four innings, walking one and striking out one.

Casey Blake gave Cleveland a 1-0 lead with his fourth homer of the spring, a third-inning shot off Curt Schilling.

Schilling gave up only one other hit in six innings -- Jody Gerut's double in the fourth. The only other Cleveland batter to reach base against Schilling was Chris Clapinski, who got to second when left fielder Brian Daubach dropped his fly ball for an error.

Boston's David Ortiz went 2-for-3, including his fifth homer in the sixth off right-hander Giovanni Carrara.

Boston's other runs scored on Kevin Millar's sacrifice fly in the fourth off Stanford and Cesar Crespo's RBI single in the seventh off rookie right-hander Kazuhito Tadano. Recommended Stories
