Jon Lester (top right) was not terribly sharp in last night's game, allowing 3 runs on 8 hitsthrough 6 innings. He earned the win, and is now 8-2/3.98/79 this year. Bobby Jenks came in and walked a better before scoreless innings by Matt Albers and Daniel Bard. Jonathan Papelbon then came in and earned a save by allowing 1 run in an inning. The Red Sox wen nuts on Freddy Garcia (left) as Jacoby Ellsbury was 2-5 with a solo home run, and he is now .301/7/30. Dustin Pedroia was 1-3 with 1 run scored and 1 RBI. Adrian Gonzalez went 1-2 with 2 runs and 1 RBI, along with 2 walks. David Ortiz went 1-4 with 2 RBIs on a huge home run, as he is now .324/14/32. Tonight, Tim Wakefield (2-1/4.40/20) and A.J.
