Red Sox coverage in today’s Globe

• Terry Francona’s Indians rattled off 16 hits and thumped the Red Sox 12-3.

• Chris Gasper writes that Francona’s return shows that he’s more popular in Boston than ever before.

• Struggling with command issues, Ryan Dempster walked four, gave up 11 hits and left after three innings, having thrown a laborious 85 pitches.

• Shane Victorino (left hamstring) is still day-to-day, and so is Will Middlebrooks after leaving the game in the fourth inning with low back spasms.
