Cespedes' clutch HR sends Red Sox past Cincy

Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Yoenis Cespedes' two-run homer in the eighth inning was the difference, as the Boston Red Sox clipped the Cincinnati Reds by a 3-2 count in the opener of a two-game interleague set.

Xander Bogaerts finished with two hits and knocked in the other run for the Red Sox, who have won three of their last four and were coming off a road series win against the Angels.

Tommy Layne (1-0) tossed a scoreless inning of relief, and Koji Uehara shut the door in the ninth to post his 26th save.

Devin Mesoraco finished 3-for-4 with an RBI, and Todd Frazier drove in a run for the Reds, who have lost three of four.

Jonathan Broxton (4-1) took the loss and the blown save, after giving up the deciding blast.
