Red Sox place P Steven Wright on DL

NATIONALS 5, ROCKIES 4 (at Denver) - Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos homered, Bryce Harper doubled in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and Washington beat Colorado despite a lackluster start from Max Scherzer (7 innings, 4 earned runs, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts).

Betances got major league RBI leader Edwin Encarnacion to ground into a game-ending, around-the-horn double play with runners at the corners.

LHP Roenis Elias was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket after Sunday's game. Pomeranz allowed two runs on five hits in 7 2/3 innings.

The Cleveland Indians got their 11-game homestand started off on the right foot, as they swept the Los Angeles Angels in a four-game weekend series.

Now you expect to have a tougher time against playoff-quality teams - and the Red Sox are still positive against those teams. Though you're hard-pressed to say a game at the beginning of November will have a long-term impact of the makeup of the season, this game will be a good jumping off point for the Celtics to see how they stack up against a top team when (most likely) both sides are healthy.

In 12 games for the Red Sox, Benintendi is hitting.351 with an.802 OPS and three doubles. The team did not announce the reason behind his bereavement leave, and Ramirez was spotted getting pats on the back from his teammates in the clubhouse after the game. The Indians have had success stealing third base this year, and as long as there isn't two out, manager Terry Francona said that it's part of their game. "(Pedroia) hasn't changed his approach. But his other numbers seem to be going in the wrong direction. "Like a lot of kids who are long-levered, it took him a little while to figure it out".

As such, it hasn't escaped the Red Sox's notice that what happened Monday was a step toward their proving that they're as good as perhaps only they think they are. The two-time AL MVP is hitting.310 with 27 homers and 77 RBIs. Taillon tossed eight innings of three-hit ball in a 4-0 win over the Padres, throwing more than 100 pitches for the second time with Pittsburgh this season.

"I thought he was really good, really crisp", Francona said. With Tomlin leading the Major League Baseball in HR's allowed, it's going to be interesting to see what the Red Sox and their risky bats have in store for him. Dave Ferriss was the last Boston pitcher to start a season 13-0 at Fenway in 1946.

The Boston Red Sox made a flurry of roster moves following their blowout win over the Arizona Diamondbacks this afternoon.

"Things get more complicated than what people believe that last month of the season", Ortiz said.

Wright missed a start last week but had said he was "50-50" to make his next one, scheduled for Thursday night in Detroit, depending on the outcome of a bullpen session Monday.

Davis scored another run for Cleveland on a double in the eighth inning before the first two Indians reached base in the ninth - Francisco Lindor on a leadoff double and Mike Napoli on a walk - off closer Craig Kimbrel. The former two-time All-Star is 2-8 with a 6.30 ERA in 14 starts this season, compared to 2-1 with a 3.20 ERA in 13 relief appearances.
