Plesac (10-4) allowed three runs on eight hits and three walks with five strikeouts in five innings to earn the win Sunday versus Boston.
The right-hander put quite a bit of traffic on the basepaths, but Boston proved unable to capitalize until the fifth inning. Cleveland was able to hold onto its lead, giving Plesac his 10th win of the year in his 21st start. He's been solid across 119.1 innings, posting a 4.53 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 85:27 K:BB this season. With Cleveland at least temporarily shifting to a six-man rotation, Plesac's next start is currently projected for Saturday at home versus Milwaukee.
