BOSTON -- Boston returned home to Fenway Park and left its hitting slump on the road. Tuukka Rask Jersey . The Red Sox scored a season-high in runs in a 10-3 victory over Cleveland on Friday night, one day after beating the Indians 5-2. Not bad for a team that had totalled just one run at Baltimore in the last three games of its road trip. "The thing that stands out is we answered every time they scored," Boston manager John Farrell said. "Thats two nights in a row now and thats very encouraging." A.J. Pierzynski, Mike Napoli and Dustin Pedroia hit two-run doubles, Xander Bogaerts hit a solo homer and John Lackey (8-4) allowed three runs or less for the ninth time in his last 10 starts. "Tonight was more about the offence more than anything," Lackey said. "The guys really swung the bats great, made a couple of great defensive plays for me, just a good team win." The Red Sox (31-36) entered the game with the fourth-lowest batting average in the AL and have been on a roller coaster ride, losing 10 straight, winning seven in a row and then losing five consecutive games before winning four of their last six. "Weve been able to ride some of the peaks and valleys here," Farrell said, "but theres a number of guys that are relaxed in the (batters) box right now." Cleveland is on its own streak, losing four straight. Justin Masterson (4-5) had his shortest stint of the season -- two innings plus two walks in the third -- 11 days after he had a season-high 10 strikeouts in seven innings against Boston and beat Lackey 3-2. He walked the first two batters in the second. "I walked two guys on like eight pitches," Masterson said. "Its 3-3 at the time and its still a ball game. (Manager Terry Francona) doesnt see any positive adjustment coming out of me. Why wouldnt he take me out?" With a light rain falling, Lackey struggled early when he allowed three runs and six hits in three innings. "I heard some places have summer," Lackey joked. "Thats the rumour." But he gave up just one hit in his next 3 2-3 scoreless innings before being replaced by Andrew Miller. The Indians took a 2-0 lead in the second on Carlos Santanas eighth homer after a single by David Murphy. "Hes starting to take some more aggressive swings and stay in the middle of the field," Francona said of Santana, who began the night hitting .175. "If he gets hot, that will be great for us." The Red Sox went ahead with three runs in the bottom of the inning. Masterson walked David Ortiz and Napoli. Daniel Nava singled, but Ortiz was thrown out trying to score by centre fielder Michael Bourn. Pierzynski then doubled in two runs and Jackie Bradley Jr. singled in another. Cleveland tied it in the top of the third on consecutive doubles by Asdrubal Cabrera and Michael Brantley. But Masterson again walked the first two batters, Bogaerts and Pedroia, in the third and was replaced by Kyle Crockett. Napoli doubled both runners in, putting Boston on top 5-3. After Brantleys RBI double, Lackey retired 14 of the next 16 batters, allowing runners only on a walk and an error. Cabrera doubled with two outs in the seventh, ending Lackeys night. Miller ended the threat by retiring Brantley on a groundout. Boston tagged three relievers for four runs in the seventh. Bradley led off with a single, Brock Holt singled and both scored on Pedroias double. Ortiz was walked intentionally and Pedroia scored when Napoli singled to right and Murphy let the ball get away from him for an error. Nava then doubled in Ortiz, making it 9-3. Bogaerts hit his sixth homer in the eighth. NOTES: Boston RHP Clay Buchholzs rehab outing at Triple-A Pawtucket was postponed by rain.

The league-leading New York Rangers outhit and outmuscled the Maple Leafs during a 3-0 victory on Saturday. Backup goalie Martin Biron stopped all 20 shots he faced to complete a nice workmanlike effort by the visitors.Following what the players and coach described as an "embarrassing" loss to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night, Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis remains willing, patient and fully committed to Randy Carlyle. "The pressure right now should be placed on the players, Nonis told The Dreger Report on Wednesday. "I know Randy and the coaching staff is working hard. Im not now, nor have I ever contemplated making a coaching change. The players have to respond." Nonis refuted the notion that the players are no longer listening to Carlyle, or have tuned out the veteran coach and says at the end of their season exiting meetings after the Leafs Game 7 meltdown to the Boston Bruins last spring, that every Toronto player - to a man - credited Carlyle and his staff as the main reason the Leafs qualified for the postseason last year. The Hits Keep Coming Now Trevor Smith broke his hand in the 3-1 loss to the Panthers and could be out for the next eight weeks, further taxing Torontos depleted centre ice position as Tyler Bozak and Dave Bolland are still weeks away with long-term injuries as well. Centre Jerred Smithson was recalled from the Toronto Marlies to help fill the void, but Nonis can see the toll - particularly up the middle - that his teams steady stream of injuries is taking on the club. Nonis has been trolling the league looking for trades and admits he has had offers on James van Riemsdyk, Nazem Kadri, Jake Gardiner, Morgan Rielly and both his goalies. However, the general managers with the most interest have yet to produce anything beyond older playeers in return or trade packages that are not useful to the Maple Leafs in the long term. David Pastrnak Jersey. More On Gardiner Following back-to-back bad games resulting in a benching against the Panthers, Jake Gardiners availability has once again become topical. Nonis insists hes not shopping Gardiner, but rival management sources say Gardiners name has been brought up by Toronto in trade discussions in Noniss search for a top-six forward. At the moment, there doesnt appear to be a trade fit that makes sense, so amid the growing frustration in Leaf Nation, Noniss plan is to sit tight, pray for good health in the New Year and do whatever is necessary to help this team keep its head above water. Broadway Banter Meanwhile, New York Rangers general manager Glen Sather continues to shop defenceman Michael Del Zotto. Toronto is among the teams with some interest, but the expected return of a young defenceman may be too steep for the Leafs. Its believed the Rangers would prefer a right-handed shot on the blue line, so Cody Franson is a likely target for New York as well. Sources say the Ottawa Senators are also still in the mix, although the sudden and impressive emergence of rookie Cody Ceci may have cooled the Sens interest. And providing Ceci can maintain his play, the Senators may be willing to move either Eric Gryba, Joe Corvo or Patrick Wiercioch to one of the many teams in the market for a defenceman. With the holiday roster freeze looming, its unlikely well see any big-time action prior to the break. But the appetite for change is growing among some of the NHLs big market clubs.
