Jon Lester (top right) threw a gem last night, allowing just 1 run and 6 hits while striking out 11 batters in 7 innings. He is now 4-1/2.33/46 after earning the win, and dropping his ERA considerably, last night. Daniel Bard pitched a scoreless inning, before Jonathan Papelbon allowed 2 runs in an inning to close out the game. Adrian Gonzalez had a great game, going 2-4 with 2 RBIs while scoring twice, he is now .316/2/20. David Ortiz went 2-4 with a home run, as he is now .286/4/16. Jed Lowrie went 2-4 with an RBI and a run scored. Marco Scutaro went 2-4 with that big 2-run homer, he is now .197/1/8 this year, as he's been off. Carl Crawford has really been hot lately, as after a 2-3 day, he brought his average up to .194 after being so low. Jarrod Saltalamacchia went 1-4 with an RBI double off the wall. Tonight at 7:10, Josh Beckett (2-1/2.65/32) will go against Ervin Santana (1-3/4.89/33).
