Lester Not Good, Red Sox Fall (61-47)
Last night, the Red Sox lost 1-9 to the Indians. For the second time this year, Justin Masterson stifled them, this time with 1 run in 5 innings. Jon Lester (right) is now 0-4 after the all-star break as he went 5 innings allowing 4 runs, 2 of them earned. The one run the Red Sox got was hit by David Ortiz, he is now .261/23/72. Luckily, the Rays lost as well, so the Red Sox are currently 61-47, standing in 3rd place, 6.5 behind the Yankees and Rays. A-Rod hit his 600th home run last year, all I can really say is good for him, because that's an amazing milestone, as much as I dislike him. Tonight, Daisuke Matsuzaka (7-3/4.22/74) and Josh Tomlin (1-0/1.46/7) will take the mound. I hope the Sox win so they can at least tie the series.
