CINCINNATI (AP) — Jonathan India and Kyle Farmer scored two each, Donovan Solano added a singles homer and the Cincinnati Reds wrapped up their eight-game home loss against the Boston Red Sox with a 5-1 victory on Wednesday night. Broke the chain.

India drove Stuart Fairchild twice, including a tiebreaking run in Cincinnati’s fifth of three runs. India finished second before Farmer delivered a two-run bloop single at short right field in the Reds’ first home win over Boston since June 13, 2008.
