Lester Pitches Sox To Win
Jon Lester allowed just 1 run on 3 hits to help the Red Sox beat the Dodgers 4-2 on Saturday. Lester went the first 7.1 innings to improve his record to 12-7. Boston’s defense helped Lester out by turning three double plays. Koji Uehara closed out the game for his 13th save.
Mike Napoli and Jonny Gomes provided much of the offense with Napoli collecting 3 hits and driving in a run. Gomes blasted a 3-run homer to cap the scoring.
Xander Bogaerts entered the game in the 9th inning and delivered a single to right field for his first Major League hit.
