What a Turnaround!

The Red Sox beat the Indians yesterday, 3-0, snapping a 6 game losing skid. At the helm was Jon Lester, who struck out 7 and gave up no runs through 6.1 innings. This was his last start of the season also, as maybe you remember when he was 3-5 with a 6.07 ERA, well, he finished the season 15-8 with a 3.41 ERA, and 225 strikeouts, he finished third in the league in strikeouts. Lester is in line to be the ace of the Sox when they go to LA for the Playoffs. But it this game, Lester pitched well but they had some offense too, so I'm going to start talking about that! In the first inning, Kevin Youkilis got a sacrifice fly that drove in Jacoby Ellsbury for the first run. Then in third David Ortiz and Victor Martinez (playing in his first game against his old team) each got their respective RBIs. If the Sox can sweep the Tribe, they will equal last year's record.
