Lester's Dominance Leads to Win (49-32)
Last night, the Red Sox beat the Orioles 9-3 thanks to a great start by Jon Lester. Lester allowed 1 run in 7 innings and is now 10-3/2.76/118 as he has been magnificent this year after a tough April. Kevin Youkilis had a very good game, going 2-5 with a homer and 3 RBI, he is now .299/16/53 as he absolutely deserves to make the All-Star team and I hope he does. J.D. Drew continued his good series and went 3-3 with 2 RBIs after a two-homer day on Friday. The Red Sox are half-way through the season, 81 games, if they continue this pace, they will finish the season 98-64! Keep up the good work, Sox! Today at 1:35, John Lackey (9-3/4.46/59) and Brian Matusz (2-9/4.90/70) will start. I hope the Sox can sweep the O's!
