Lester Goes the Distance in Win (22-20)

Last night, the Red Sox took out the brooms and swept the quick 2-game series against the Twins with a 6-2 win. Jon Lester had a great performance, throwing a complete game, allowing 2 runs, 6 hits, and 9 strikeouts. He is now a very good 4-2/3.47/63. The Red Sox hit 2 home runs in this game; one by Adrian Beltre (.316/3/22) as he was signed for his fielding but it has been his bat that has come through. The other home run was by Kevin Youkilis (right) who had a fantastic game, with a 3-run homer and an RBI double in a 2-4 day, he is now .324/8/26. Tonight, John Lackey (4-2/4.86/31) goes against Cole Hamels (4-2/4.29/52) as they play interleague for the first time. The Red Sox are on a roll and I hope they can continue that off the Phillies.
