CLEVELAND – For the first time this season, a national TV audience finally experienced the Indians’ late-inning karma.

Funny enough, Cleveland’s manager saw it on the tube, too.

Asdrubal Cabrera’s two-out RBI double in the eighth inning — the latest big hit delivered by Cleveland’s shortstop — rallied the Indians to a slippery 3-2 win over the Red Sox on Monday night, another dramatic victory for a team that believes there is no deficit too big to overcome.

“We’re just going out and winning ballgames,” Indians starter Justin Masterson said. “It’s a different person every night.”

The loss could have been doubly costly for the Red Sox, but the team got a positive report afterward on All-Star second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who injured his left foot in the eighth and had to come out.

Pedroia hurt the foot he had surgery on in September when he fell over second base while trying to go to third in the eighth. He was rounding second on Adrian Gonzalez’s single to right when he slipped on the wet base and fell awkwardly. He scrambled on his belly back to the base safely. Pedroia laid with his face in the dirt as a team trainer and Manager Terry Francona jogged out to check on the former AL MVP.

“It’s kind of like a stinger,” Pedroia said. “It took a little while to get the feeling back in my leg. It stinks, man.”

With a steady rain falling, Cabrera, who went 5 for 5 with two homers and five RBI on Sunday, drove his double off reliever Daniel Bard (1-4) to the wall in left field, scoring Michael Brantley and helping the Indians win their fourth straight and improve to 19-4 at home. Cabrera also homered in the fourth, and has nine hits in 11 at-bats.

Joe Smith (2-1) got one out in the eighth, and closer Chris Perez got out of a first-and-third situation in the ninth by getting Carl Crawford, one of the toughest players in baseball to double up, to bounce into a game-ending double play for his 13th save.

“Who would have thought that you would get a double play on Carl Crawford?” asked Indians Manager Manny Acta, who had to watch the game on a TV adjacent to Cleveland’s dugout after being ejected in the eighth. “These guys always feel like they have a chance to win.”

Trailing 2-1 and being held in check by Boston starter Clay Buchholz, the Indians came up with more late-inning magic.

They tied it when Jack Hannahan singled, pinch-runner Adam Everett moved up on a groundout and scored on Brantley’s two-out RBI single off Bard. The Indians then took the lead on Cabrera’s double.
