Boston — Nolan Jones hit a three-run homer, fellow rookie Steven Kwan had three hits and the Cleveland Guardians beat the Red Sox 8-3.
That spoiled Boston’s celebration for newly minted Hall of Famer David Ortiz.
Minutes after the Cooperstown inductee proclaimed himself a good luck charm for his slumping former team, the Red Sox fell behind 5-0 on their way to a sixth loss in seven games.
They have lost 14 of their last 18 to fall into last place in the AL East.
Bryan Shaw made his first start after a record 732 relief appearances and Austin Hedges homered for Cleveland.
The Guardians snapped a three-game losing streak.
