Michael Bourn opened and closed the scoring Tuesday night.

There was nothing wrong with Bourn's opening effort, but it was the closing act that gave the Indians their fifth straight victory with a 5-3 win over Boston.

It did not pack the drama of Bourn's walk-off, two-run homer against the Rockies on Sunday, but it meant the same thing – victory. Bourn hit a two-run double in the seventh inning to break a 3-3 tie as the Indians won their eighth straight game at home to improve to 20-11 at Progressive Field.

The victory moved the Indians to within 4 ½ games of first-place Detroit in the AL Central. They were 10 ½ games behind the Tigers on May 18.

Jake Peavy (1-3, 4.72) started the seventh by walking David Murphy and giving up a ground-ball single to Yan Gomes. Mike Aviles forced Murphy at third on a bunt attempt as lefty Andrew Miller relieved.

Bourn sent a double to the wall in left on Miller's 2-1 pitch to score Gomes and Aviles for the lead. Bourn has hit in 16 of his last 17 games with 13 runs, four doubles, two triples, two homers and seven RBI.

"I think he understands the impact he can have on our team and I think he's enjoying it immensely," said manager Terry Francona. "That was not an easy at-bat for him against Miller."

The win went to Nick Hagadone (1-0) in his 2014 Tribe debut. It was Hagadone's first win in the big leagues since June 19, 2012.

The Indians took a 3-0 lead in the first against Peavy as they opened with five straight hits. It began with Bourn's leadoff single. Asdrubal Cabrera moved him to third with a single to right and Michael Brantley scored Bourn with another single to right for his 41st RBI.

Jason Kipnis mixed things up with a bunt hit in front of the plate as Peavy and catcher A.J. Pierzynski nearly collided as Peavy wisely held the ball. Lonnie Chisenhall, who scored two runs on a bloop single in the first inning Monday, scored one on a bloop single Tuesday to bring Cabrera home for a 2-0 lead.

The Indians, with no outs, were one hit away from a big inning, but it never happened. Ryan Raburn hit into a 6-4-3 double play as Brantley scored for a 3-0 lead. Peavy struck out Murphy to limit the damage and keep Boston in the game.
