Alexis Diaz signs up for a rescue against the Red Sox

Cincinnati Jeimer Candelario hit a pair of home runs, Andrew Abbott set a season-high 10 strikeouts and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Boston Red Sox 5-2 on Friday in the opener of an interleague series.

Candelario hit solo homers off Kutter Crawford (3-7) in the first and third innings. Jonathan India also punished the Red Sox starter in the second inning and the Reds scored two more on an error by reliever Cam Booser in the seventh to end Boston’s five-game winning streak.

Abbott (6-6) allowed two runs, solo homers by Jarren Duran and Connor Wong, plus four hits in 5 2/3 innings. He allowed a single by Romy Gonzalez to start the sixth and then fanned Tyler O’Neill and Rafael Devers before giving the mound to Puerto Rican Fernando Cruz, who struck out Wong to end the inning.
