The Indians were able to narrowly defeat the Red Sox 5-4 on Thursday night in Game 1 of the ALDS. A bulk of that offense came in the third inning when the Indians hit three solo home runs off of Red Sox starter and AL Cy Young contender Rick Porcello.
Roberto Perez led off the frame with a solo shot to right field. Carlos Santana grounded out, then the Indians got right back to business as Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor went back-to-back with solo shots.

The Red Sox hit three solo home runs of their own, but because we like patterns and their homers were spaced out, no video for them.
