BOSTON (AP) - Joe Kelly of the Boston Red Sox has gotten his no-hit bid against the Cleveland Indians broken up with two outs in seventh inning.

Juan Uribe ended Kelly’s try with a double into the right-center field gap after a diving catch by center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. on the previous pitch to Marlon Byrd.

Kelly came off the disabled list before the game Saturday at Fenway Park. He had been sidelined since April 20 with an impingement in his right shoulder.

The right-hander had seven strikeouts and three walks and was immediately lifted by manager John Farrell after the hit. The Red Sox lead 4-0.

Junichi Tazawa came in. Kelly left to a loud standing ovation.

Kelly was helped by a pair of defensive plays from second baseman Dustin Pedroia and first baseman Hanley Ramirez on grounders by Jason Kipnis.

Kelly helped himself with a nice play in the fifth. After loading the bases with walks, he backhanded Chris Gimenez’s grounder and fired home for an inning-ending forceout.
