Red Sox 3, Reds 2

CINCINNATI -- Yoenis Cespedes hit a go-ahead, two-run home run in the eighth inning, helping Boston defeat Cincinnati for the eighth time in nine regular-season meetings.

With two outs and the tying run at second in the eighth, right-hander Jonathan Broxton threw a high and tight fastball to Cespedes for ball one. Cespedes launched Broxton's next pitch 433 feet to center to put the Red Sox ahead.

Broxton (0-1) entered the game ranked second in the National League with a 1.07 ERA and had not allowed a run in 39 of 45 appearances.
