On the second night since the Boston Marathon bombings, the Boston Red Sox gave their city a victory.

“It was obviously not a normal game,” Dustin Pedroia said. “It’s in your mind. We’re obviously thinking about what’s going on back home.”

A gray jersey with “Boston Strong” wrapped around the digits 617 — Boston’s area code — hung in the dugout. Players wore black arm bands across the famed dual stockings logo on the left arm of their uniforms.

Fenway Park anthems “Dirty Water” and “Sweet Caroline” blared through the Progressive Field loudspeakers before the game. The flag flew at half-staff.

“All our hearts were back there with the people in Boston, the families, everyone that got hurt,” Mike Napoli said. “The umpires would ask me about it. Everyone that gets to first asks about it. It’s thought about throughout the game.”

Still, it didn’t hurt that the Red Sox won the game. With so much else being postponed or canceled on Monday and Tuesday, the Indians hosting the Red Sox might have been the first diversion for a city mourning the victims of terrorist attack at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday.

“Given the events and the tragedy of yesterday, this is a good way to maybe send some positive energy back towards Boston,” manager John Farrell said. “This is fresh on everyone’s minds. Even though we might not be in Boston right now, we carry this with us.”

Mike Napoli hit two doubles in a seven-run second inning as Boston cruised to a 7-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night, its fourth straight victory.

Pitching for the first time in 10 days, Felix Doubront struck out seven in five innings, giving up just two earned runs. The trouble was that he needed 104 pitches to do it, meaning the Red Sox bullpen needed to patch together 12 outs even after Napoli & Co. had given the team a 7-0 lead.

Napoli led off the second inning with a double to right field and he eventually scored without breaking a sweat. An erratic Ubaldo Jimenez walked three of the next four hitters, forcing Napoli home with the game’s first run. Pedro Ciriaco lined a sacrifice fly to right field to score another run, and Jacoby Ellsbury ripped a single off the shortstop’s glove to score another.
