BOSTON (AP) - Pinch-hitter Mike Carp drove in the tying run with an eighth-inning double and then scored on a double by Dustin Pedroia as the Boston Red Sox rallied for a 7-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday.

The Red Sox scored four times off reliever Vinnie Pestano (1-1), who took over with Cleveland leading 4-3 in the eighth.

Pedro Ciriaco doubled and scored the tying run when Carp batted for Jonny Gomes and hit a high fly off the Green Monster in left field. Pedroia's double off The Wall with two outs gave Boston its first lead of the game, and the Red Sox added two more on Daniel Nava's bloop single with the bases loaded.

Junichi Tazawa (4-2) struck out two in a hitless eighth and Andrew Bailey got three outs for his sixth save in seven chances.

Boston starter Jon Lester struck out a season-high eight in seven innings. He also hit a better with a pitch as Cleveland scored twice to take a 3-1 lead in the third, then threw a costly wild pitch in the seventh.

Mike Aviles and Asdrubal Cabrera hit back-to-back singles in the seventh, then Lester allowed the go-ahead run with a wild pitch to Mark Reynolds that skipped past catcher David Ross. Lester ended up striking out Reynolds, but Cleveland had regained the lead at 4-3.

Cabrera had three hits, stole two bases, drove in a run and scored another for the Indians, who lost for the fourth time in five games. Nick Swisher added an RBI double and Carlos Santana a run-scoring single.

Scott Kazmir pitched five innings and struck out six for Cleveland. He gave up two runs, five hits and four walks.

Ciriaco had an RBI single in the second and Gomes' sacrifice fly tied it at 3 in the sixth.

NOTES: The four-game series concludes Sunday with Cleveland RHP Corey Kluber (2-3) facing LHP Felix Doubront (3-2). ... SS Stephen Drew sat out for Boston, still sore from a slide he made last weekend in Minnesota, manager John Farrell said. ... Cleveland manager Terry Francona said before the game he was thankful general manager Chris Antonetti traveled with the club as Francona made his return to Boston, where he managed the Red Sox for eight seasons and won two World Series titles. ``It meant a lot to me,'' said Francona, who was welcomed back with a standing ovation Thursday night in the series opener. ``I know he came up for moral support because I had some anxiety.'' ... Cleveland DH Jason Giambi, hitless in his last 26 at_bats, did not play.
