Lester Cruises, Red Sox Win 4th Straight (26-21)

Yesterday was definitely a pitching game, the Sox won 2-0 and what a game. Jon Lester (right) allowed 1 hit through 6 innings, striking out 9, yet for some obscure reason they took him out after 6 innings! He is now a very good 5-2/3.15/72 as he has been extremely good after April, he is 5-0 with a 1.64 ERA in his last 5 starts. David Ortiz got the key hit, a 2-run double to the left-center gap in the 3rd inning, he is now .258/9/25 as he has really improved in May, he has 8 homers in May! Mike Cameron was back in the lineup last night, and in his first at-bat since April 18, he hit one... high and deep to left field... and robbed of a home run by Carl Crawford. Tonight's pitching matchup is John Lackey (4-3/5.07/34) vs Matt Garza (5-2/2.37/54) as I hope Lackey can pull it together. Has anyone got a broom?
