Boston wins wild card, will play KC

Drew Pomeranz came through with a solid 8 and two third innings as the Boston
Red Sox bested the Cleveland Indians 3 to 1 at Progressive
Field.

Pomeranz(1-0) simply dominated Cleveland. He was stingy on the mound,
allowing just 2 hits and 2 walks in 8 and 2/3 innings. The pitchers took
over after the 4th inning as neither team was able to score again.

Craig Kimbrel earned his 3rd save. Trevor Bauer(0-2) was hit with the loss.
He allowed a few too many baserunners giving up 7 hits and 2 walks in 3 and
1/3 innings.
