Battery Gets an Double-A In Win (74-55)
The Red Sox beat the Rays yesterday by a score of 3-1. The MVPs of this game were the battery (the catcher and the pitcher). Jon Lester went 7 innings, striking out 10 and allowing only 2 hits, although he did walk 5 people, he is now 14-8/3.12/176 as he has been very good this year. The other great player in this game was Victor Martinez (right) as he went 3-4 with 2 home runs and 2 RBIs, he is now .285/12/53, an interesting fact is that Martinez became the first player this year to hit 2 homers in a game off David Price. The other RBI belonged to Jed Lowrie, as went 1-4, he is now .280/3/9 as he has been pretty good this year. Tonight, Clay Buchholz (12-5/2.26/96) and Matt Garza (13-7/3.62/127) will pitch. This could very well be another pitching game, plus the Yankees lost!
