BOSTON, May 6 (UPI) -- Victor Martinez was one of four Cleveland players with three hits and delivered a solo homer Wednesday, leading the Indians past Boston 9-2.

The Red Sox, coming off their second sweep of the New York Yankees this year, had a nine-game home winning streak snapped.

Asdrubal Cabrera, Martinez, Shin-Soo Choo and Mark DeRosa, batting second through fifth, accounted for all but one of the Cleveland hits and drove in all but one of the runs.

Martinez doubled home two runs in the fifth to put the Indians in front for good, had an RBI single in the seventh and added his homer in the ninth. DeRosa contributed a two-run homer in the seventh.

Carl Pavano (2-3) worked six innings to get the win, giving up two runs on six hits. Aaron Laffey allowed two hits over the final three innings for his first save of the season.

Justin Masterson (2-2) was roughed up for six runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out six. Masterson also gave up six runs in six innings in his previous start against Tampa Bay.
