Jon Lester (top right) was not very good at all, allowing 7 earned runs in 5 2/3 innings, earning a loss and making him 7-2/3.94/74. Dan Wheeler threw 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief and Michael Bowden threw 2, but it was not enough. Dustin Pedroia only went 1-4, but he had that clutch two-run single, and he is now .243/4/18. Adrian Gonzalez went 2-4 with that long home run to right, as he is now .332/10/36, as he's been great all year. David Ortiz did a good job of getting on base, going 2-3 with a walk, and raising that average to .306. Unfortunately for the Red Sox, the bottom half on the order did not even get a hit, as the last 4 people went a combined 0-13 with a walk. Tonight, Alfredo Aceves (2-0/2.22/17) and Phillip Humber (3-3/2.85/33) will square off in Fenway.
