Allen gave up four runs in the ninth inning Monday with Cleveland up 3-0 after seven scoreless from starter Trevor Bauer.

"Cody is about as trustworthy and dependable as anyone we have," said Francona. "Monday night wasn't a lot of fun, but if there's anybody we believe in, he's right at the top of the list.
