Lester Struggles in Loss (3-4)
Today the Red Sox lost 2-5 to the Twins in a tough loss in the first ever game at Target Field. David Ortiz had 1 RBI but still is mired in a .136 slump to start the season. Jon Lester (right)allowed 4 runs in 5 innings for the second straight game as he is now 0-1/7.20/9 in 2 starts. Dustin Pedroia got his 8th RBI on a sacrifice fly, he is now a remarkable .357/3/8 to begin this season, he went 1-3 today. Marco Scutaro went 2-4 in a leadoff appearance for him, with Jacoby Ellsbury out of the lineup after his collision with Adrian Beltre yesterday. Ellsbury's replacement, Jeremy Hermida (playing in his 3rd straight game) had a 1-2 day today, as he has been a more than adequate replacement for the various outfielders the Red Sox have been resting. I hope the Sox can win on Wednesday, Lackey pitches!
