Now a starter, and perhaps the finest on Cleveland’s staff, Fausto Carmona got back at the Boston Red Sox.

His days as a closer are closed.

Carmona pitched eight shutout innings against the team that blasted him out of Fenway Park when he flopped in a tryout to save games last season, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 1-0 win on Wednesday night.

The 23-year-old Carmona, who gave up just four singles, was facing the Red Sox for the first time since blowing consecutive save chances in Boston last season, two outings three nights apart that all but finished the Indians’ experiment with him ending games.
