Jon Lester, as a general rule, was very good last night, he ended up allowing 3 runs through 7 innings, although all of the runs came in the 5th inning. Lester earned the loss, setting himself at 0-1/3.72/17 through his first 3 starts. Daniel Bard and Bobby Jenks followed him up with a scoreless inning each. Dustin Pedroia had a good day, going 1-3 with a walk and a run scored. Jed Lowrie also had a good day, going 2-4 with that RBI double that I mentioned earlier. Darnell McDonald (left) went 1-3 with a home run that made it 1-0 Red Sox. Tonight, John Lackey (1-1/15.58/5) will go head to head with James Shields (0-1/4.73/7).
Dustin Pedroia- 1-3 with a walk and scoring a run
Jed Lowrie- 2-4 with 2 doubles including an RBI double
Darnell McDonald- 1-3 with a home run
Jon Lester- 3 runs in 7 innings isn't bad
Daniel Bard- a scoreless inning
Bobby Jenks- ditto
Carl Crawford- 0-3 with a strikeout
Adrian Gonzalez- 0-4 with 2 left on base
Mike Cameron- 0-3 with 3 left on base
Jason Varitek- 0-3
I am very sad that the Sox are doing so badly, and I really hope they turn it around sooner rather than later.
